 herklæði ‘war-garments [ARMOUR]’: This cpd, occurring in skaldic poetry only here and in st. 5/2, is here treated as a kenning, albeit a marginal one. It is listed as a kenning in Meissner 166, and is comparable with, e.g., herváðir/hervæðr ‘war-garments’ (Eyv Hák 4/1), but it also occurs in prose (see Fritzner: herváðir), including SnE (1998, I, 67), where a section is dedicated to kennings for vápn ok herklæði ‘weapons and armour’.
