A look at Game of Thrones armour


Defense Issues

This post will look at armour in Game of Thrones TV series.


House Stark

Stark armour is very good. It consists of a mail shirt (hauberk), gambeson or arming doublet, and leather armor tunic which looks like it is capable of receiving metal inserts – in essence, a brigandine armor. This armor is appropriate for a not-so-rich house: mail armour is easy to make, and leather tunic with metal inserts provides protection that is almost as good as lamellar armour but is much simpler to make. Leather, if well-made and treated, may also protect the metal inserts from corrosion, which may be an issue in cold and damp North. Combination of gambeson and leather tunic also means that armor is warm, which makes it good for use in the cold North – although in battle, armour may become too warm.
