  • Munich brigandine (corazzine) from Hohenschwangau castle,1360-1450 (14 - 15 century)
    BRIG-20
    Lucas Custer

    I would definitely recommend it. It was my first time buying armor online, easy to order and fast delivery, good packaging. I collected my order at Orange medieval market, so shipping was for free. I met there my manager, with whom I was doing the order and the owner of the store. They are very nice and reliable guys.

  • Mongolian (Asian) warrior armor: 11 - 17 century
    BRIG-04
    LEROY 

    J'ai reçu cette armure il y a peu de temps. Les finitions sont parfaites et la qualité de fabrication est parfaite. J'ai opté pour un modèle en tissus et en titane de 1 mm. J'ai choisi le titane pour des raisons de solidité et de légèreté. je souhaite utiliser cette armure autant en combat libre quand tournage vidéo de combat chorégraphié. Pour le moment je l'ai utilisé en combat d'entrainement et de démonstration et je ne suis pas déçu. Les plaques tiennent le choc sans problème. Donc pour finir un bon produit fait avec soin I received this armor recently. The finishes are perfect and the build quality is perfect. I opted for a fabric and titanium model of 1 mm. I chose titanium for reasons of strength and lightness. I want to use this armor in free combatand also in choreographed video shooting. For now I used it in training and demonstration combat and I'm not disappointed. The plates hold the shock without problem. So to finish a good product done with care

  • Khatangu degel of the Golden Horde warrior, XIV-XV century

    I just done some training in behourd. 15 min of fighting with 7 assault (2/2 fighters). The bracers are ok with only 3 lacers that are damaged but not totally. The brigandine is really cool and get just a cut of 1cm. A strong hit with à two handed axe on my ribs. No damage for me. Thank you to you and and you're blacksmith.

    Great choice of customization! And the manufacturers are attentive to historical requests: I ordered a gambison with real eyelets sewn instead of the usual straps, it's solid! Thanks from France! (French crossbowman of 1459, franc-arbalétrier d'Auvergne)

  • Arming doublet, 1405 year
    HG-04
     James

    Overview: I ordered this gambeson for use in HEMA, specifically the works of Fiore dei Liberi. This is is the first tailored garment I own, and the difference between this and an off-the-shelf gambeson is incredible. I have full practical range of movement. I have worn several gambesons in the past, and all of them required me to fight them to move the way I wanted. With this gambeson, I simply MOVE, and the gambeson complies. It is an ally to my movements, not an enemy. Fit: As in the overview, the fit on this gambeson is excellent. I was worried my measurements would be wrong, or something wouldn't sit quite right, but Steel Mastery has provided an amazing garment based on my sub-par measurements. I can lift both hands above my head, reach my hand over my shoulder and into the small of my back, and do many of my normal stretches while wearing it. It fits snugly without being tight. The tailored waist keeps the fabric against my flanks, which helps to avoid bunching and discomfort. The linen fabric seems to breathe quite well, and while it keeps me warm, I did not feel as though I was overheating over the couple hours I wore it last week. More testing in the summer months at renaissance faires in California will see how that holds up. Protection: I bought this gambeson for use in HEMA sparring and the occasional tournament. I wear a WinterTree gorget under the gambeson to protect my collarbone and throat. The gambeson fits very nicely over the gorget, and keeps it flush to my body. While I would not karate block and incoming sword blow and expect the gambeson to protect my bones from being broken (it's not steel armor after all) it does what I feel a gambeson should do in terms of protection. It makes sure that errant or poorly executed cuts are nothing to worry about. I am confident this garment would protect me from minor alignment errors even against period-sharp swords, though I will not likely test that any time soon. I received a couple of thrusts to the torso and cuts to the arm during my testing, and they all felt solid but manageable. I cannot speak to more layers of padding, but if you are planning on wading in against opponents with little to know control and that "but hitting hard is how you HEMA" mindset, you may be helped by 3 or 4 layers of padding. For me, I'm comfortable with the protection offered. Style: Gods damn, I look good in this. This gambeson really stands out from the crowd. In an era where ren faires seem to be dominated by mass produced garments from the same three shops, and where tournament fighters wear what look to be space suits and call them "historical" this piece of kit REALLY brings together the medieval look. The blue is subtle. At first, I thought it was black! But sunlight shows its true color. Regal, but not ostentatious.

  • Arming doublet, 1405 year

    Lucas Mendes

    I got this doublet in royal blue, 2 layers with linen exterior. With some nice festoons. It's an amazing doublet. The color is beautiful the linen makes it really soft and comfortable to wear. Their products are built to last and the craftsmanship is beautiful. Not only does it protect well in battles it also looks amazing on its own. I only use steel mastery padding under my armour. Amazing customer service and shipping was very fast and resonable. I recommend them to everyone looking for gambesons and the like.

    I ordered this for a number of reasons (style, color options and more protective than my other gambeson) and am very satisfied with the result. I can tell I'mma get a lot of use out of this in my HEMA group

    I do all my online medieval shopping with Steel-mastery and I'm never disappointed. They are the best. Quality and service is the best. Return process is really easy and simple. I ordered the wrong style gambeson, so I just paid for shipping and additional cost for some options that I needed. Thank you guys, for your understanding and patience.

  • Gambeson with sewn mittens of the XIII century
    HG-12
    Nick

    This is a great gambeson. It is very sturdy and well made, with a good historical feel. I chose maximum padding, 5 layers, and in addition to being very protective it wears surprisingly light and is very comfortable. If you go with this option I would recommend getting the open armpits however, because it gets very hot at this thickness. And finally, Steel-mastery's customer service is excellent. After ordering the gambeson I found that I had misunderstood the measuring procedure, and they went ahead and made a whole new gambeson without extra charge.

    Amazing quality for such a prize. It's very comfortable to wear and does its job 100%. Only prob I had was with the laces but that was easily taken care of.

  • Long gambeson of the XI-XV centuries
    HG-21
    Mike Wilks

    Awesome service. I just got my second gambeson. First one was spoiled at customs or during transportation. Package was opened and closed again. On the front part there were some oily stains. Before shipping Steel mastery send me the photo, everything was fine. Since it was not their fault, I agreed to pay for the shipment in both directions, but the manager discussed the situation with the owner and we split the shipping price. A+ or AAA+++. You are the best.

    I own this Gambeson for a month now and for me it is well worth the prize. The made to measure fit is comfortable and doesn't restrict movement. The finish leaves nothing to find fault with, stitchings are firm and no loose threads up until now.

    I use my gambeson for sword fighting. It is resistant, protects well and fits me perfectly. During the whole procedure, I had an excellent follow-up and I received my order on time. What more ? I am very satisfied of what i ordered :)

    Sondre

    I have this gambeson in linen with 3 layers of padding in the torso and 2 layers in the arms. With holes in the armpits this gambeson gives good maneuverability, and my movements do not feel restricted while using a sword. The overlap in the front of the gambeson seems sufficient enough to stop a sword thrust from slipping in. The gambeson also does a good job at keeping me warm, even in snowy environments.

    Amazing item! I ordered it with 1 layer of padding and that is more than enough for use under a plate harness. I am super excited about this product and plan on ordering from Steel Mastery in the future.

    I ordered this set in October and I get it in December. The measurement are really respected and the quality is fine. This 3 layers model is a very good protection. I fought recently in armor with it under and the 3 layers protected me as well. I took a hit on a weak point of the armor and i had no injury.

    I ordered this set of gambeson and chausses. I must say that I'm very satisfied with the quality of product. My order was 3 layers, with all additional acessories, and all is as described. When I made my order, they contact me and send me informations for body measures. They even contact me back, to asure of one measure, that was a mistake, when I take a measure. Obviously they have some experiences. Production time was about 2 months , they shipped it with national post and took about one week to get it.

    Samuel

    Very happy about this product. It's a bit warm when you pu it on, but the cloth breathes nicely thanks to its holes below the armpits. The buckles look resistant, and even tough you'll feel a bit stuck with your arms at first, you'll be able to wield a sword in no time (I tried, and it works fine) !

  • Padded chausses - 1 layer padding
    CPC-041L
    Samuel

    A tad tight, as in a bit difficult to put on. However, once you're in, it fits like a glove. You should be careful with the strappings (especially the one below your foot, if you have long feet like me) when you put on the chausses in order to not break them, even if they seem pretty resilient.
