Hayes Company Armory are a provider of high quality SCA style armor. They specialize in Brigandine armor, sometimes called a coat of plates. The armor is made from heavy canvas and 1/8 inch (3 mm) ABS plastic. Each piece is made from 3 layers of heavy canvas which is stitched in a vertical pattern to increase the strength of the fabric. The plates are made from 1/8 inch (3 mm) ABS plastic which is custom molded to fit each customer's body.
Placing the plates inside the brigandine where they do not show allows all the benefits of lightweight, comfortable and easily maintained plastic armor while still remaining visually "In Period."
