RFB Padded armour
As a squire, you must wake with the sun to prepare for your training. You are responsible for your master as well as your extra chores, and it’s only after the morning’s water is boiled and you’ve set out your master’s clothing and polished armour that you are allowed to begin your drills.
What armour you own--RFB Padded Armour--is easy enough for you to wear as you practice your sword swings. One day you will be a fearsome knight. For now, you must continue to train hard and build your skills.
Epic Armoury’s Ready-for-Battle Padded Armour is a long padded, sleeveless coat covering the body from the shoulders to the upper thighs. Made from quilted cotton canvas lined with a soft polyester interior and a medium cotton outer layer, this padding can be worn on its own or as padding beneath heavy steel or leather armour. Suede split-leather lining at the neck prevents tearing or splitting with excessive wear against armour, while also adding additional comfort to the neck.
The RFB Padded Armour is stitched to ensure the padding will remain evenly spaced. This coat provides ease of movement thanks to the slitted front, back and sides. Adjust it to your size by tying the cotton straps at the hips. With its neutral style, the RFB Padded Armour will work on a wide variety of characters. Match it with other Epic Armoury armours and clothes to fit your unique style!

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.
