Although we call them heavy, these shield bosses are anything but. Suitable for SCA heavy combat, they are formed from .220" high density polyethylene. They are durable, maintenance free, and won't dent or rust. They weigh far less than metal shield bosses, and come in a variety of sizes. If you want something larger than what you see, feel free to contact me and I can probably make up a pattern as large as you need.

Size Diameter of Cavity* Overall Diameter Approx. Weight

A Note About Texture

Wherever possible, I use textured plastic, as pictured. I like the look of it, and it seems to resist scratches and scuffs better. However, I have been unable to source 1/4" textured HDPE, which is why I make shield bosses from .22" rather than the thicker .25" HDPE. If you'd prefer a slightly thicker but smooth shield boss, send me a note, or let me know in the notes section of your cart during checkout.
