Regular price $78.00 Most garments are offered on a made-to-order basis. Please allow for 3-5 weeks of lead time.
Waist Height

By the late 16th century, the German city of Nuremberg was a known capital of armor production, where they specialized in high-quality infantry armors of simple but bold design. These armors were typically painted black to protect against corrosion, with contrasting bright steel bands. Infantry harness of this type was also typically of a "half-armor" style, with upper thigh protection but without greaves — which lends itself naturally to armor capris! ;)

Our model is 5'2 and wearing a size XS in standard rise, capri length.

Love love love!

These leggings are so soft and comfortable! They aren’t some cheap vinyl print on, they are extremely well made in comparison to many of my other name brand leggings. The shipping is well worth the wait and I can’t wait to order more!

Love these leggings!

I just got these leggings in the mail yesterday and am SO excited to wear them! They look just as good in person as they do in the photos. I teach stage combat and can't wait to show off! I love that these came in a capri option for those hotter months where I might be training outside. I only wish more of the designs had pockets!

Love these!

These are great! I wear them a ton, love that they have a pocket! They are not see through. A really comfortable fabric and the pattern really lasts through tons of washes! I've owned these for 2 years and they are still great!

Keeping me strong!

I love these leggings! They are fairly opaque (though I get nervous and wear skin colored underpants with them just in case!) and I love the high waist which doesn't roll down when I don't want it to! The pockets are such a great bonus and can easily hold my iPhone 8+ as well! I get compliments all the time on my Lorica leggings and I love telling folks the story behind the company and the armor I'm wearing. Speaking of, I've worn these to my husband's HEMA tournaments and the folks there lose their minds. They look awesome, feel fantastic, and I look like a total badass when I wear them.

Extremely comfortable

I love these. Taking then out of the bag at first I was nervous, the print in two locations didnt seem to line up right and the awesome design had bold black stitching for the pockets that I failed to realize would be there.
However putting them on I completely forgot about the slight problems. They are comfortable and look amazing on. I didnt notice the stitching anymore just the design.
While they do fit (ordered xs) I should have gotten a small as the back is thin and color can be seen through it as its stretched out.
Recommending these to everyone!
