Even the toughest warriors can benefit from a good defense, and the Blue and Red Gastir Viking LARP Shield is just that. Durable yet soft, this latex-foam LARP shield is safe for live action roleplay and has a detailed historical inspiration that makes it the perfect choice for any Viking or Norse LARP kit.
The Gastir Viking LARP Shield has been made in collaboration with Lejre Land of Legends, which is a Danish center for historical and archaeological research. Then, the specific design was chosen from shields seen in the Oseberg Tapestry, which is an artifact from a Viking ship burial found in Norway.
This LARP shield has an EVA foam construction that is both soft and safe as well as sturdy enough for LARP combat. Protective latex then coats the foam. Designed to look like painted leather stretched over wood, a faux leather strip accents the outer edge. Red and blue in equal parts spiral out from the central boss. This center shield boss features a metallic, dark steel tone.
Furthermore, this round LARP shield boss has rivets around its edges, enhancing the shields realistic look. On the back, the foam Viking shield has a realistic wood grain with a grip in the center, behind the boss. The grip will fit comfortably even in the hands of those not wearing armour. Finally, leather wrapping gives texture to the hold.
With its detailed, researched design, this Nordic LARP shield is especially suited to historical Viking costumes and LARP. Whether your character is a jarl called to battle, fierce shieldmaiden, or even a Valkyrie inspired by myth, this round Norse LARP shield is ready to give you the defense you need on the LARP battlefield.
The Blue and Red Gastir Viking LARP Shield has a diameter of 29.5 inches. Please be aware that this measurement can vary slightly, as it is a handmade item.

- Latex shields do need to be maintained to a certain degree. We offer a 100 ml LARP Protection Gel Silicone (MCI-3722) in our LARP Accessories section. We recommend you use the silicone on a regular basis. The silicone will keep the coating flexible and increases the lifetime of the shield. It also prevents the coating from drying out and improves resistance to wear and tear.
