Here is a sampling of the armour we have to rent. We have 16 full armour combinations. Each piece is hand crafted from 14 gauge galvanized or stainless steel - which means they are highly rust resistant. They can be used in battle scenes (and actually provide additional protection) or simply be worn as incredibly realistic costumes. No more dealing with spray painted knit underwear! They are perfect for any play set in the early Medieval period (Macbeth, King Lear, Becket, The Lion in Winter, etc.)
Each suit consists of a coif and a hauberk. The coif is the headpiece which fits closely over the head, protects the side of the face, and smooths over the neck. A hauberk is the shirt of maille. It has medium length sleeves, covers the torso and comes down to just above the knee. Contact Tim Frawley with any questions.
