Klappenrock Bjorn, Viking Warrior's Coat with Braid, dark blue, various sizes

Our Viking coat is made of sturdy cotton fabric (canvas) and lined except for the sleeves. It is comfortably loose-fitting to allow for multiple layers of clothing underneath. Its length ends shortly above the knee and thus conforms to early medieval representations. We recommend you to wear the klappenrock with a belt, as it closes the same way as a present-day bathrobe. Please note that the belt is not included in delivery and should be purchased separately.

The klappenrock (also known as a warrior's coat or wrap around coat ) has its origins with the Eurasian horse-riding nomads (i.a. the Huns and Avars) and found its way to the West during the Migration Period and Early Middle Ages. The Vikings and Rus' People adopted this particular type of coat and added decorative, tablet weaved trimmings to the garment. A Norse klappenrock typically features angled front flaps that overlap diagonally and are held together with a belt. Historical depictions of wrap over coats can be found, for example, on the 7th century Sutton Hoo and Valsgärde helmets. Several fragments of such coats were also found at the Viking Age site of Hedeby, the most significant Viking settlement and trading venue on the Jutland peninsula (close to the town of Schleswig, now in northern Germany). The klappenrock was usually combined with a tunic and baggy trousers. Warrior motifs found on surviving helmets suggest that it was not only worn in everyday life but also in battle.

- Available sizes: S, M, L, XL, XXL
- Colour: black-blue/blue-grey with braid (also available: brown (unicoloured), red/wine red)*
- Material: 100% cotton
- Length overall size L: approx. 95 cm (measured from the centre back neck down to the bottom hem)

*The brown variant is plain-coloured. The red and dark blue variants are respectively highlighted in wine red and blue-grey at the cuffs, shoulder yoke, neckline and hem. The dark blue variant is additionally finished with an appliquéd border/braid at the cuffs and bottom hem. The border's plait pattern is based on the archaeological find B23 from Birka.

As authentic as possible, as modern as necessary!
This Viking klappenrock is part of Battle-Merchant's line of period clothing and medieval garments for men, women and children. From the first sketch to the last stitch, this garment was planned, designed and handcrafted with particular attention to detail. Our clothes are modeled (sometimes accurately, sometimes less so) on historical examples, grave finds and original museum pieces where they exist. We always endeavour to keep the necessary adjustments to today's standards, e.g. in terms of size and manufacturing process, to a minimum. Just see for yourself!

Ich habeich nach längerer Zeit durchgerungen, nach dem roten nun auch den blauen Klappenrock meinen Gewandungen zu zu führen. War der rote schon eine Augenweide, so kann ich es gleichfalls von dem Blauen behaupten. Sehr guter fester Stoff und sehr gute Passform. Kein Farbeverlust nach dem ersten Waschen, was oft nicht selbstverständlich ist ( bei anderen Shop's). Es wäre allerdings schön, wenn es sie auch in Größe XXXL geben würde.
