    Actual Armor like that weighed about 65 pounds but it was fairly light considering most soldiers now carry more weight than that into battle.

    Hahaha, I can completely relate! I'm in the SCA and the armor is so heavy, hot and restricting (cant sit). But nothing like dressing up in a tin can and go beat on your friends with sticks.

    To bad plate armour wasn't invented in the times of the Romano-Britons who would've just wore pretty much the same armour as late Roman soldiers

    If it was actual armor, a gambison would be worn under the maille, a coif would also be present on top of padding. If you were in -5 degrees celcius then it would be very comfortable

  42. The Stutterer

    Funny, that armor is from 14 or 15th century while Arthur could've lived around the 5th and 6th century and he was probably a Celt.

    Its not true that it doesent immobilize you at all , of course it doesent make you a statue but it prohibits you from having full body motions , check metatrons video where he compared samurai armor to knight armor , not biased test 2 people were performing it , its pretty good.

    Actually, plate mail was never really used to fight in. Mostly because shortly after plate mail was available, it was for the extremely wealthy, and guns were in development which were a lot cheaper an could puncture the plate mail. The closest thing to plate mail that was actually used during that time was the samurai armor in Japan, but the fancy armor was ceremonial and their battle armor was made with leather coated in bamboo. So sorry Adam Savage, but it was rare and too impractical to custom make plate armor for each soldier, much less going into combat with it. Though it is nice to think about.

    Yeah, you're spouting absolute bullshit. It was absolutely commonly used from 1350-1650 or so by just about anyone who could afford it. Lower class soldiers generally wouldn't be able to afford much, but they would have a helmet and perhaps gauntlets over a gambeson and maille. Any man at arms (a professional soldier) after 1350 would almost certainly be wearing plate armor, perhaps not full plate armor, but they would certainly wear something like a curiass and some protection for the arms and legs. You're right that full plate armor was for the wealthy, but even middle class soldiers were able to buy a moderate amount of it. As for guns, they were just as likely to harm the user as anyone they were shooting at in the 1300/early 1400's. Guns had been around for nearly a thousand years prior to that as well, they just never got popular because they were unreliable and ineffective when compared to a bow/crossbow. Even when guns did become tamed and popular, plate armor was still used and was even able to deflect bullets in certain scenarios. Metal armor was worn all the way through the Napoleonic period and even into WW1. TLDR Plate armor was extremely effective at providing protection and you'd be an idiot not to wear it if available, and forms of metal armor lasted until WW1

    _Excalibur,_ even to this day, is the greatest King Arthur legend movie ever made. It just has all the things such a movie needs: Great characters, acting, direction and incredible and perfectly appropriate MUSIC. So good! So far, nothing else has even come close (IMHO).

    What is funny about that armour he said it doesn't imped your movement that much but just looking at it there are pieces that are solid that would normally be joins (like the chest). Most plate armour pieces will actually bend further than the person. The only thing that impeded movement when wearing plate armour was the mail inside because it would bunch up. Also plate armour only weighed 45-55 pounds which actually isn't too much because it is distributed very evenly across your whole body. There are armours that are much heavier and impede your movement but these are for jousts and never for battle.
