* Design update: Each set of shoulders now have a taller upper arm section which closes the gap between the upper arm section of armor and elbow armor. In addition to being taller, the upper arm section is also now attached via a single point, which gives it a much wider range of motion. Please take a look at the photos to see the difference between the new/old styles.
This listing is for a pair of leather Shoulder (Spaulder) armor. These are very similar to style 3, with a more angular top section. They do not offer as much coverage as the style 1 shoulder armor, but have more points of articulation, so allow a greater range of movement.
This style was designed to pair with my "Gondorian" style vambraces, and elbows. They are constructed much like the elbow armor that I offer, and feature two articulated sections that extend down the arm to protect the bicep.
They are made from 8 oz Latigo leather and feature a long buckled strap that runs across the chest, as well as two straps that secure it to your arm. The chest straps are attached via Chicago screws, which makes them easily removable to use alternate attachment options. There are two holes on the top edge of the pauldrons which allow them to be laced onto a gambeson or maille shirt via point ties; or attached to the gorget that I offer via chicago screw.
They have the option of having a leather overlay for added protection, and well as being impregnated with wax to add rigidity to function as armor in reenactment fighting, HEMA, LARP, or whatever your hobby happens to be. As with any armor, if you do plan on using these for protection, you should wear a gambeson, or add some padding of your own ( I recommend cotton batting/pillow filler).
Be advised that if you choose to wax a lighter color it will cause the leather to darken, so any color but black will end up being a very dark version of itself.
If you'd like contrasting colors when ordering the 2 layer option, let me know what colors you'd like, otherwise it will be two layers of the color you choose. For color options other than the ones listed, or for custom color options, please check out the add-on listing.

Everything we offer is made to order, so will take a minimum of one week to ship out.
Our items are all made by hand. We do not mass produce anything, and every item has been designed, tested, and created by us. A lot of time and effort has gone into every item we offer, and we do our best to make sure that everything that leaves our shop lives up to our standards and hopefully yours.
We only offer a few different sheath options, but we operate out of a large brick & mortar cutlery store, so there's a chance we have the knife you're looking for. Contact us to set up a custom order.
All of our belt holsters meet IDPA regulations, but our shoulder holsters do not.
To put in bluntly, if your leather sheath does what it's supposed to do, you shouldn't need to put a different sheath inside of it. Our leather sheaths function very well being made out of leather, and our kydex sheaths work very well without a leather lining.

They are great. They craftsmanship is excellent and they are exactly what I imagined. Allen does good work. I opted for the waxed option as I wear these with gambeson and chain. Combined I am able to take a considerable hit and they wear fairly well. Recommend!
