Medieval LARP Gorget The Medieval Renaissance Gorget is modeled after the original protective neck protection which shifted from something worn under the armor to something worn over the armor. The gorget was also a symbol of rank and status. With design, this neck armor features 18 gauge steel construction with a shiny metal finish. It is comprised of two curved plates held together by leather straps and has attachments in place. Fully functional with true medieval flair, this gorget is great for costumes and re-enactments.
