To the XIV century, it’s been a long time since Mongol army got dressed in trophies from raids, as Chingisids set up production of Mongol-Tatar armor on the commercial scale in the conquered regions with high level of handicraft industry.
Iranian miniatures are a real goldmine of information of how medieval plate armour Khudesutu Khuyag was looking like in the XIII-XV centuries.
Essentially, types of Mongol armor could be divided by materials (hard and soft) and by design (cuirass-like and vest-like models).
Our today’s hero is a cuirass-like Khudesutu Khuyag with spaulders and skirt-tasses. It has been carefully reconstructed by painting sources from Iran, China and Japan. This functional medieval armor is a real gem of the Mongol protecting armor. It protects at the highest level, without restricting of fighter’s movements. At the same time, it looks flawless, still being a historically correct. Spaulders and skirt are available for choosing in options.
We offer reenactment lamellar armor, made of 1.0 mm polished steel plates, which are linked together with strong cord on the firm and soft leather base. Belts with steel buckles are reliable fastenings of this lamellar armor. By your wish, we may change color of leather and cord, thickness and type of metal, design and metal of buckles.
The size of lamellar plates can vary from tiny (close to chain mail that doesn’t restrict the movement) and to as large as a palm (comparably not mobile but firm). Standard size is 7*4 cm (2.75*1.57 in), but you are free to choose any other size you deem necessary.
Historically, this armor deflects upwards and this decision has a reasonable explanation: if made downwards, the plates are on the maximum distance from each other, armor stretches, and provides no freedom of movement. Moreover, the cord, on which the plates are assembled, grinds three times more often.
N.B. If you choose option lacing with cord, color of cord could be the same as color of leather fastenings, but if red and brown cords are out of stock, it will be black one. If you choose option lacing with leather cord, color of cord would be always the same as color of leather fastenings.

By the way, tracing early versions of this armor, we could not but pay attention to the Old Turkic cuirass. It had been found in the burial site Balyk-Sook, which is located in the valley of Ursul River (Central Altai). Armor is dated by the VIII – early IX centuries.
