Very cool. And a Tim Noyes sword to back it up. Class.

Is the one they had at TORM marked "sold"?

If so, it looked very nice

If not, yours looks very nice

given your doublet was made for another harness it loks like it dont fdo too bad on this one


There’s a country in Europe where they treat their ex soldiers with pride no waits for medical treatment after injuries received during service, no amensia from the government. Cant for the life of me recall where it is but I know exactly where it is not.

Can I be mildly picky and it is only mild here, so don't think I am being nasty as I do like the look of that harness, I love the finish on it.

The black belt and pouch on the picture outside the castle, just look a bit modern to me, it could be the picture not being detailed so if it is, please ignore this.

A nice quality pouch, or even not one at all would be better and a good quality sword belt and buckle would set that off a treat.

I do like the harness though.

Appreciate that, I do have a nice new blue belt but I forgot to put the extra holes in it to fit over the plate, so I had to wear that one, the pouch though, never really thought about it, I did wonder why I seemed to be about the only person with a locking system on it, but I've spoken to a couple of earlier period guys and they had a more basic type of system so I thought it would be ok, not really my subject. I'll look into it now though I think

The shape is wrong for 15thC (and earlier) too boxy really and the locking sytem is just too modern. I personally would not wear anything on a belt other than a sword over armour and when in soft kit the maximum I would wear is a belt pouch fitting to status and possibly a dagger, butt hat would be it. You see far too many people wearing absolutley everything they own on their belts Christmas tree stylee. No need for it, it's a bit of a re-enactorism.

As are the walking arsenals who take to the field with polearm. longsword, shortsword, hand axe, dagger (the list goes on!) That's why it's fun to go up against GCOT. They are always carrying so many weapons you can always borrow one of theirs (and sometimes use it against them). Cheers fellas. :lol:

Agreed with the carry everything, and I wasn't going to carry my pouch until I realised I had no where to keep anything (Which included the keys to the school) so I popped it on, otherwise I wouldn't of done. Guess I will have to purchase a new pouch in the new year, Its a shame, I really liked that pouch....

Agreed, I only take my sword and a dagger with me onto the field, though at some point I might increase it to a pole axe, but I might sacrifice the sword for that, not sure yet....

Ermmm...that one appears to be from a modern box or bag of the sort that you can buy in somewhere like "The Pier".
