Armor Series
« on: 2015-07-29, 23:08:28 »
I realized I posted this everywhere but here, so I might as well!

New video discussing arming garments.  Will be the first in a series going through each piece of armor one at a time.  Good for beginners and veterans alike.  Some will notice I did not cover the lendenier (the arming girdle / belt).  I will either give it it's own video or add it into the video on cuisses.  I skipped it because I'm experimenting with a textile version of it, but haven't finished it yet.

Nicely done!   :)

I really wish there was a video like this (and YouTube) 20 years ago.  The kids starting WMA and other medieval combative sports today have no idea how good they have it!

Great video about an oft overlooked aspect of armor. Nicely done, sir! I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

Also, I envy you your beard.

If I had a YouTube account, you would have a new subscriber. But since I don't, I will simply voice my approval here. :)
I like the background and setup you have going on in this video, too. Very professional-looking.

You can't really get sabatons without them being custom anyway.  They are not simply a shoe size, they must be very close fitting to your shoe, which must be in turn very closely fitted to your foot if you want them to function like the real thing ;)

Far more comfortable than the opposite.
