The jousting armour developed during the 15th century to an actual special form of plate armour. One of the most striking changes compared to the previous armours is a heavy helmet, fixed on the armour, the tapered shape of which should ensure that the blunt lance slips on the helmet. The jousting lance itself was provided with a tournament crown to prevent penetration into the Helmets slits. The Right hand was protected by a metal vamplate on the lance, the jousting armour had this no right gauntlet.
This Jousting Grand guard (breastplate add-on, cuirass reinforcement) is hand-hammered from 2.0mm (14 gauge) steel plate. Since the shape and fastening is always individual, it is made only when a suit of armour is ordered (or sent to us).
If you want to wear un-padded leather gloves in the gauntlets, order both in the same size (in your case size 9). With padded leather gloves we recommend to order the gauntlets always one size higher (so in your case 10). If you discover that the goods do not fit after receiving it, you can exchange it for free. You only pay the shipping costs.
