A firefighter, a soldier in full gear, and a medieval armored fighter

"A firefighter and a soldier in full gear bear the same load as a medieval armoured fighter. Which one will perform best on the run?"

This video displayed in the exhibition "Armatus Corpus" at the Military Museum, Castle of Morges, Switzerland is a pretty fascinating comparison. The clip shows how well designed medieval armor really was.


  1. Note the knight is 10 years older at 34. Big difference from 24. Of course a fighting knight at 34 in medieval times is likely one bad ass to live that long.

  2. So much for the myth that if a knight fell off his horse he needed help getting off the ground.
