Handsome Haute Shoulder Pauldrons SCA Legal Armor LARP CosPlay Faire Costume. Dark Victory Armory Haute Pauldrons.
Built of heat formed High Density Polyethylene, these pauldrons provide rugged protection in full contact rattan sword fighting combat or LARPing. Differing from our standard pauldrons these feature a wider base plate & a crescent shaped plate attached by solid copper rivets and extending upwards to protect against rising shots to the neck or head. Our armor is assembled with 550 test para-cord and has flexible gap free articulation between all of the plates. The pictured 3 lames version extends down the arm providing good rearbrace protection that can be easily adjusted by knotting the para-cord as you wish.
There are mounting points on the pauldron plate for easy attachment to your body harness or costume. These wear well on a leather jacket. All edges have been heat treated to give a smooth and safe rounding.
This armor is entirely compression rivet free. Failures are rare & easy to fix. It is designed for speedy armoring up and down. Although light in weight, these pauldrons are nearly indestructible and extraordinarily tough. Although some areas ask that exposed plastic be covered in tournaments, this armor exceeds all known world standards for protection.This armor has been extremely popular and we previously had it listed with only the standard 3 plate variety that is a good balance between mobility and protection. Most fighters go with the standard set of 3 lames. But because of the popularity of a full upper arm coverage, we are now offering pauldrons with both more or fewer lames. We've taken a typical pauldron from the workshop and measured it to provide a fairly accurate set of dimensions so that you can understand the size of this plate. Individual pieces will vary as each on is cut, formed, and riveted by hand. Main shoulder plate - 19 inches front to back / 13 inch span from wing to wing 6.5 inch width. Attached "haute" riser plate - 13 inches front to back and 3 perpendicular rise from the plane of the shoulder plate. One plate - minimal arm protection - A single plate lame is attached to the pauldron - goes over the shoulder joint. Two plates - light arm protection - Two lame plates go a bit further down the arm. Three plates - standard arm protection - This is what we could consider typical upper arm coverage. Four plates - extended arm protection - For fighters who want a bit more of their rearbrace area protected; this configuration goes nearly to the elbow. Five plates - full arm protection - This extends the lames all the way down to the elbow on most fighters. Because someone has mistakenly ordered a pair of these thinking they are made of leather, I'd like to state categorically that despite their similar appearance they are NOT made of leather and are instead made of HDPE plastic. This makes them rust proof, mildew free, & easy to clean. You may attach the armor directly. The pauldron directly to a sturdy garment like a leather or canvas jacket. The function of this strap is to allow easy connection to a breastplate or similar armor/garment. A 21 inch long by 1 1/2 inch wide continuously punched strap of high quality top grain leather upon which can be mounted the pauldron by way of leather cording, para-cord, or rivets.
This punching pattern allows you great versatility in placing your armor exactly where you'd like. If you order this strap we encourage you to squeeze the wings of your pauldron together. Between your knees as you connect it to the strap so that is creats. To wear a single shoulder pauldron with no other support.A shoulder harness using a one inch belt with continuously punched holes throughout. The pauldron can be attached to this strap and worn across the torso. We typically size this as 3/4" x +/- 55" with continuous hole space punching throughout to allow for easy sizing with a variety of style of shoulder armor.
An arm strap measuring 14 inch x 1/2 wide belt with continuously punched holes throughout to secure the lower most articulation on the shoulder lames assembly to cross below the arm near the bicep. We offer this both as strap side and buckle side as well as a single piece so that you can bifurcate as you'd like for mounting to the plates to secure it under the arm. A length of leather lacing is also included to provide easy mean to connect your shoulder armor to the straps.We do have a lifetime guarantee on all of our armor; HOWEVER, we do not guarantee the life of the user.
