Review about items
Sized perfectly and of a quality I was not expecting! Made to fit over my gambeson that I ordered at the same time, they measured everything well. The straps are strong and can be pulled snuggly with ease. The brass buckles are well cast and stronger then one would expect. Over all, I don't think I could be more pleased with how everything came to me.
Amazing! The quality ist great and it fits perfectly. Color represantation isn't accurat on the images shown. I've got the wine red one and it's a bit darker, but I prefer it like this. It's a beautifull color. I like that the leather strips from the fastenings are quite thick, so they should prevent nice durability. They look amazing in combination with my brigandine in the same color. Would recommend this!
