The popular online role-playing game, Age of Conan, based loosely on Robert E. Howard's "Conan the Barbarian" has had a huge following beyond the digital world for quite some time. Our official licensed products make the Hyborian Adventures universe a LARP reality, while enabling anybody to take on the roll of Conan.
And this elaborately crafted cuirass with backplate is one of the Age of Conan basics. The front of this black breastplate of sturdy polyurethane combines the shape of an ancient breastplate with evocations of scales on the belly. It closes at the bottom with a bronze-colored tie that is decorated with the Cimmerian lion and eagle motif as are the insignias around the neck. The backplate is similarly crafted, yet it has several metal rivets at the level of the shoulder blades. Leather straps and metal buckles tie the front and back of the cuirass together on the shoulders and sides. Lining the entirety of the cuirass and backplate unit is gladiator skirt, and each of the panels is connected to the breastplate/back piece with genuine leather straps.
Additionally, the Age of Conan cuirass and backplate comes with an elaborately crafted black tunic of 100 percent pure cotton. An adjustable headdress of polyurethane acts as a symbol of sovereignty, completing this look on par with Conan himself.
