This bestselling Epic Armoury Veteran Armour is a typical western cuirass designed to protect the whole torso. The cuirass secures tight over the breast and abdomen using four sturdy leather straps--each riveted with decorative brass studs--and brass buckles. It is highly adjustable both at the front, but also with strong leather cords at the flanks.
This cuirass is crafted to be especially hardy by stitching overlapping full-grain leather with heavy leather cords. At the neck, an additional leather plate serves as a gorget. Along the rims of the armour, the edges are bound with flattened leather cords. The effect is a solid piece of armour with lines suggesting a slim waist and broad shoulders.
Epic Armoury's Veteran Armour is compatible with all other Epic Armoury leathers and metal works, and is designed to fit various character types.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase
It is best to start cleaning leather from the most delicate measures possible. Therefore, use a damp cloth with a little soap. If this is not enough - use a hard brush to remove dirt. Remove the soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue, and then use a dry cloth to wipe away the remaining water from the leather. Let it dry completely before the next maintenance step.
Always keep the leather maintenance after cleaning, because the soap will remove some of its natural oils. Apply mink oil, olive oil or professional lanolin-based fats to clean leather using a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of fat with circular movements. Wait for the fat to soak in the leather, then use a clean cloth to clog the residue. For maintenance, you can also use beeswax by heating it to a liquid state and applying it to the leather. Remember that the leather so preserved will be harder and significantly darken what sometimes is the desired effect.
