Late 15th century Milanese pauldrons with outstanding articulation. 16 gauge steel, strapped and ready to wear. Yes, they are non-symmetrical. They are/were designed that way - more freedom of movement for your sword arm, more protection for your (no longer carrying a) shield arm. Weight: 3 lb 1.5 oz each (ya rly - they weigh the same!) Size: Standard - around L/XL.
