A breastplate is worn to protect a soldier’s torso from injury during battle. It was one of the longest lasting pieces of armor because it protected the body’s vital organs without limiting movement. The first breastplates were made of leather. Later in time, breast plates were made of iron then steel.

We have a stunning collection of leather, steel, including combined leather and steel breastplates. These breastplates will be a stunning addition to your Medieval collection. The breastplates are also fully wearable as a costume piece.
