Functional Mongol Armor

Mongols definitely were one of the scariest warriors in the history of man. Among a lot of things that made them successful in battle, was their armor that was light and allowed greater movement and agility for both the warrior, and the horse. This one is called “Khatangu degel mongol armor” and was built keeping in mind the Eastern Mongolian style of armor, and the later western European and Arab styles the armor absorbed.

Built as a “luxury Korean version” the armor is built in three parts, the first two being a tasset (skirt) and shoes held by leather belts, attached to the body armor with straps and stitched cotton gorget with pauldrons . The third part is the body armor vests and the helmet masks. Costs $1470.
