Few things offer better protective qualities than iron and steel with historical armour. But with it also comes disadvantages like weight, inflexibility and the need for constant maintenance to protect against rust. Nevertheless, in this day and age, unless you are on the re-enactment battlefield, you don’t need the protection of steel.

As an alternative, we offer the Light Kit brand, a range of armours made of polyurethane (PU) to resemble authentic metal, quarter the weight of steel. Each piece is hand-painted with a durable acrylic finish and detailed to appear as realistic as possible. In contrast to traditional metal armours, the Light Kit armours are more comfortable and maintenance-free. The flexible design enables it to bend to your body contours in ways rigid steel cannot.
