The sound isn't coming through well so you may have answered this in the video. Is this kit for combat, show, or something else?

This is good for Larp. But I wouldn't use it for anything heavier than foam weapons. Its not very historical either. What are your goals as far as armor or building your kit goes? I understand budget is always an issue haha  :).

Costume says it all. Not ARMOR practical for steel or rattan weapon fighting. Will not even qualify for armor safety specifications in SCA or ACL if inspected. However, LARP away in it!!
