Late 14th Century Knightly Harness Mobility Demo

Description

A demonstration of how well you can move in a properly fitted suit of 14th century armor. Gauntlets were removed for the pushups so I wouldn't scuff them up. It consists of arming clothes underneath (a pourpoint, gambeson and hosen), a haubergeon of maille, then from bottom to top sabatons (feet), greaves (shins / calves), cuisses (thigh), breastplate (chest), vambraces with integral spaulders (arms with shoulders), and hourglass gauntlets (hands). Helmet was removed for the demo because it doesn't affect mobility and it's easier for me to see. Breastplate Original http://www.saunalahti.fi/snild/sotahuuto2006/2.jpg
