VISBY BRIDANDINE, TYPE III
VISBY BRIDANDINE, TYPE III Here are the most popular medieval armor of reenactors and fighters - brigandine of Visby.

Reliable and easy construction of armor - numerous steel plates, riveted to leather or textile base, and seems like it likes being top dog again. ;) This a good, completely...

Review about items
I got order today and satisfied 100%! My compliments to crafters for very beautiful qork. Armour fits perfect, it is light and all movements are comfortable. Thanks!
I ordered this armor in the same colour and it looks even better than on photos! I love it! VEry comfortable and fits perfect. Sales communication is also on point. Completely satisfied!
My compliments to all steel-mastery team! I was a bit concerned to purchase custom-made armor online but it fits excellent! High quality craftsmanship, good communication. I;m completely satisfied with service and my order. Thanks!
Superb quality of materials and fantastic fitting (there's my first made-to-measure thing:) It looks amazing, it's very comfy! And customer service is the best one I've ever had) Keep it up!
I would like to thank all the Steel Mastery team! You guys made a fantastic job! This armor is the best thing I ever worn:) Craftmanship is on point, every piece fits perfect. And I really like blued finish:) Special thanks to client support for always quick replies and updates on status of my order. I recommend Steel Mastery to everyone who's looking for quality and authentic armor.
This is my actual coat of arms you made for me. I love it. It works wonderfully. thank you
I am satisfied with my Royal Brigandine. It is carefully crafted and fits well. Also the small bag with the reserve for a repair is really great.
I received the parcel shipment. The small bag with the reserve for a repair is also really great. I am also satisfied with the Brigantine. Thanks for that!
I received my custom made brigandine and it is fantastic! Quality of materials and workmanship is very good. Specail thanks for a small bag with spare detalis (rivets, a piece of fabric, belt). great servise, guys, keep it up! Cheers from France!
Beautiful armor, I am very happy with it. Laces are strong; movements are free, general look of armor is awesome. Thank you very much!
Very good work! Straps are hard, fitting is perfect. I am really satisfied with this gambeson.
We received the order and are happy with the results. The gambesons are a little bit on the big side but no problem. We are verry satisfied with the results.
It's easy to wear, it fits my torso, it's easy to move, and its design is simply great! It is said that it is a wonderful gambeson! Thanks a lot!
The fit is very nice, it feels very comfortable and it looks really great (i chose a cotton outside in royal blue and a linen lining). I got the standard fully attached sleeves which might be not ideal if you intend to use it for serious HEMA practice since arm movement above the shoulders is a bit restricted and pulls up the whole gambeson a bit. From what i read in the comments though the other versions do not have this issue so this just in this particular case. I also chose the simple leather lacings as fastenings and find while the leather feels a bit soft an stretchy they hold up ok and shouldn't be dificult to replace if the ever do wear out. Overall i'm very satisfied with the craftsmanship especially for the price, as well as the customer support.
Perfect workmanship and nice quality of fabrics. Gambison is very comfortable, love it pretty much. Thanks guys!
I got this gambeson specifically for HEMA trainings and satisfied 100%. It looked so good on the picture and when i got it i was even more excited, cause its fit is perfect (guys made it for measures of my body) and i feel super comfy when wearing it. My gambeson has laced sleeves, so it may be turned into sleeveless jacket. Two goods by price of one ;-) Client support is also very nice and on point. Thank you, Steel Mastery!
Gambeson is light (I have it two layered) and comfy. Congrtas to designers and tailors - it was a good idea to make lacing from the inside, too. So you may easily make fitting a bit looser or tighter. The best custom-made good I ever had. This HEMA gambeson defnintely deserves all stars, not only 5:) Highly recommended!
I ordered the Gamebson in "royal blue", the color turned out very nice. The unusual position of the laces is a real eye-catcher. The Gambeson fits perfectly, works just fine in combat. I chose the 3-layer variant with holes at the armpits, it offers enough protection on it´s own for light to medium sparring, only encountered minor obstruction at the high longsword guards. I ordered the arms a bit longer than I would for normal clothing in order to ensure some proper overlay between the armor and my sparring gloves. A very fine piece of craftmanship, the only small issue I encountered was that one of the brass lace points got loose the first time I tried it on. Just crimped it on again and it held up perfectly since then. The other ones were properly fitted. The delivery was quite fast considering it´s a made-to-measure piece. I would definitely buy it again, that´s a full recommendation from my side.
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) !
I am satisfied with your work quality. I will recommend it to my brothers.
Excellent! Perfectly fits (L size). Precisely made, nothing left unfinished, or undone. Fast delivery, perfect communication. Recommending to all.
Very good product and quality. The gambeson fits perfectly. The woman shape is very well designed and the color is wonderfull. Thank you !
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.
Wonderfully built, very snug but no restriction on movement. Good looking gambeson as well.
I have received it. Its quality is superb. It fits like a glove. I love it. Next time I add anything to my swordfighting kit, I will budget for Steel Mastery, though that might take a while. Thanks for everything
The arming doublet was very well made and my son (who it is for) was more than happy with it. Steel Masters service is very good and professional. The custom made size fits perfectly, is very comfortable to wear and easy to move around in. This isn't our first product from Steel Mastery and it will not be our last order from them as all their products have been well made and their service has always been good..
I bought this gambeson with the intention of using it for HEMA. My first observation of it was that it is thick and flexible. I chose the thinnest option, and it hasn't affected my mobility in the slightest. I can get my arms to touch my ears, a feat nobody else in my club can achieve in their gear. It is very warm, and comfortable enough that I've worn it as a jacket when going for walks. I cannot stress enough how much I like this gambeson!
The Doublet is beautiful. It fits perfectly, and even thought it is only 3 layers, it is sturdy and feels like a stand alone armor. I can not get over how comfortable it is. I have several “off the shelf” gambersons, but nothing comes close in quality or fit to this doublet. I don’t understand why I waited so long to get a respectable piece such as this.
I am very satisfied of the products and will order on Steel mastery the next time
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.
Communication was excellent and the gambeson is amazing!!! +++++ Will buy again!!
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.
PERFECT!! Thank you very much! You do beautiful work and I highly recommend you!
I received exactly what I wanted. The seller is very responsive and kind.
Arrived today and i can have no complaints. The shirt looks great and exactly what i ordered. Just have to save up and work out what i want next. Many Thanks
I bought the amazing Costume of Landsknecht and I got not that thing that I expected, it was completely amazing. Materials so soft and pleasant to the touch, I adore it . It fitted me well and the quality, oh it is just yummy . Definitely would order something again.
I received my gambeson yestarday and it is amazing and very comfortable! It fits all my measurements and materials are so good. Nothing wrong at all, just what I expected to get:) Thanks!
I just wanted to say BIG THANKS to all Steel Mastery team for this awesom gambeson! I have it with two layers, royal blue linen (color is even better and brighter than I expected!), good stitching and fit is simply FANTASTIC! And I like the idea of laced sleeves: as a result I got two for the prce fo one - super comfy gambeson and padded jack:) Love this gambeson to bits, thank you guys!
I purchased this gambeson with red leather cover, two layers of padding and cast buckles two years ago and I must say it is the best custom made thing I ever had - it's still as good as new (despite of I have up to 4 trainings a week). Especially I love that I may adjust and regulate lacing on my waist. In two words, I recommend this gambeson to all girls who wants not only be safe when training, but also look good ;-)
Wow so WOW!! Awesome excelent gambeson!! Thanks so much!! Its PERFECT!!! great work with best quality, all the way has deserve every step!! I use my gambeson for sword fighting. It is resistant, protects well and fits me perfectly....my friend told me "it fights alone" LOL !! During the whole procedure, I had an excellent follow-up always clear, fast and friendly. I am very satisfied of what i ordered ...Just PERFECT! and 100% recommend! Impresionante y excelente gambeson !! ¡¡Muchas gracias!! ¡¡¡Es perfecto!!! ¡Gran trabajo con la mejor calidad, todo el largo proceso ha merecido la espera! Uso mi gambesón para la lucha con espada: Es resistente, me protege por completo y me encaja perfectamente ... mi amigo me dijo "¡el gambeson lucha solo" LOL! Durante todo el procedimiento,el seguimiento y las respuestas de la tienda fueron siempre claras, rápidas y amables. Estoy muy satisfecha con el producto ¡Simplemente PERFECTO y 100% lo recomiendo!
Very satisfied with the service at Steel Mastery! I opted to have extra buttons and additional length and they were more than happy to make the adjustments for me.
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)
Hello, I wanted to inform you that the goods have arrived safely and that we are satisfied with the quality. Thanks as well for adding additional pieces.
Amazing new find! Found this guys on medieval market in Orange. Bought some chausses and gambeson, just love them. Great quality, perfect fit. Will definitely be buying from them again!
Good workmanship and nice materials, though it is a bit heavier than I expected (3 layers and leather cover).
I heard nothing but only good reviews about Steel Mastery from my friends. However, I've never ordered custom-produced products on-line, as I doubted it may be manufactured well without personal attendance (my body has some "peculiar" features, hehe). Finally, I ordered this Eastern gambeson (two-layered, black linen), provided measures and approximately in a month, I got my gambeson. What can I say - these guys have an eye for custom manufacturing! Firm stitching, nice fabrics, and what is the most important - gambeson fits me so good, not even like a glove, but like a skin, lol)) So, 5 of 5 stars and highly recommended!
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 just receiv the gambeson, and it is amazing ! Thank you, you and all the team, for it ;)
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.
Tested in combat and really confortable. Made to measure and fast delivery. Very well attended also. I'll definitely buy from Steel Mastery again!!
I received my gambeson and I am very happy. It is really comfortable and beautiful.
Perfect outfit and looks really authentic. Fabrics are high quality and fits like a dream. Quite long leadtime, but it is ok for custom made clothing.
I'm vey happy with this gambeson. It's very well made, and everything about it fits perfectly. The customizable options really let you get exactly what you want, and customer service was very helpful. Shipping was also quite quick considering how far it had to go.
Good quality and a fantastic work! I ordered this gambeson for HEMA training and I'm very satisfied with the results. Highly recomended.
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.
My first time ordering from Steel-mastery honestly I was very surprised. They are fast and nice, spoke to manager and the owner about brigandine. Had some questions). A lot of questions)) Great deliver and excellent quality.
Ordered this for a wedding, and it turned out much better than I could have hoped. I was able to pick the colours I wanted, as well as what kind of embroidery from what they had available. Delighted at the quality!
I am very happy with this beautiful armor and completely satisfied with carfters' work. IT is heavy, yes. but fitting is perfect and i can move in it. Thanks to all team!
I would like to thank you all of team! This armor is awesome, absolutely what I was hoping it would be! Just fantastic craftmanship, I'm really impressed! All parts fit me perfecrtly (I wear it over the thin doublet, also from Steel mastery:)) and despite it's heavy enought, it's quite comfortable to move in this armor. I am totally in love with this piece of art! Thank you, thank you!
I finally got my armour and it is flawless! Pros and cons: + custom made steel armor which really looks authentic + fits all my measures + possibility to choose customization (I have it of steel 1.5 mm, mirrow finish, brass rivets and red belts. And it is just WOW!:) + top customer support. Always quick replyes, updates on the status of my order + spare parts - belts, rivets and a couple of buckles The only one minus is a waiting time. Manager estimated making time so I was ready to wait. Anyhow if you order such armor for some event, so do it well in advance:) My deepest gratitude to all Steel mastery team for this fantastic work. I am satisfied 100% and will recommend you to all my comrades for sure.
Everything went perfectly. Items that I ordered were received in a perfect condition.
Armor looks awesome and fits me nice. Client support is also on top. Will order more from Steel mastery in future
Beautiful work ! fit perfectly to me and awesome details ! Recommended !
My first grand purchase from Steel Mastery (before that I was ordering gambeson, brigandines and plenty of small padded things from them. Every time super quality and service). So when I finally decided to treat myself with a plate armor, there was only one shop which i knew will make it perfectly. Also I knew that it tooks not a month (or even two) to craft such armor. ANyhow, it costs every penny and every day of waiting. I received my order in 6.5 months, every piece was carefully wrapped, packages were easily tracked. Special thanks for client support - always fast answers, great help with all my questions before ordering. Fitting is flawless; armor's completely mobile (I'm able to walk, sit, jump etc.). It is heavy, indeed. But what's expect from such metal shell?:) I do highly recommend Steel Mastery as qualified and responsible shop.
Just to let you know the gambeson arrived today, and I am very pleased with the fit & quality. I will be recommending you to my friends! :)
I just got mine in the mail and I love. The custom tailoring makes for an excellent fit and it has quality construction.
Love the style of this doublet! Big thanks to tailors, it fits like a glove and so comfy! Special thanks to customer service manager for her kind and useful answers to all my questions:)
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 gambeson for use under my harness. While it took a little bit to get to me because of a misshap at the postal service, Steel Mastery was very helpful in helping me locate it. I recieved it yesterday and I am already amazed at the quality and usefulness. I ordered 1 layer of padding which is more than enough for using it under plate, but be aware that the armpit holes might be too open and allow the rearbrace and opening to poke you, although this was an easy fix. All in all, I am very excited about this item and plan to order more soon.
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.
Excellent quality, quite fast delivery (as for custom thing), spot on fitting. Will order more from these guys.
excellent item, fit and quality. even added some customisations that aren't on here. Also managed to get this to me sooner than expected. I cannot recommend steel mastery enough
This padded gambeson is perfect!. It is superb quality and workmanship. I have recommended you to all my comrades!
I love the feel of linen in tunic they are always the right size. I love your custom sewing services. Steel mastery you are amazing.
Wonderful tunics, very nice workmanship, nice linen, beautiful colors!!!
Hi, just to inform you guys that i did receive my order, the result is really nice and i would like to give my congratulations to all the people involved in my order, well done, you did a fantastic job ! :) I give you all my best wishes and hope to deal with you again in the future !
Outstanding fabric, outstanding craftsmanship, perfect fit
I bought two of these. One in dark blue linen with wine red linen lining, the other in wine red wool with dark blue linen lining, both with small brass buttons. They both fit perfectly, the quality of the work and the materials outstanding, and the customer service is superb. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone looking for high-quality re-enactment clothing at very good prices
I ordered this one in linen, brown and green colours. Nice seams and so beautiful ebroidering! Very pleased with customer service as well, so there is not the last my order from Steel-Mastery:)
Hello! I received the gambeson today. It is in perfect conditions and the measures are ok. Thank you!
Absolutely delighted with your service, the quality of gambeson, the packaging and the amazing pricing. Will definitely order something more from you again.
This is an amazing gambeson made by skilled armorers. I would buy from seller again!
Great Product it was of extremely high quality and exactly what I ordered. When it says custom design they take the time to work with you and make sure they are building the suit that is right for you. Sound contact all the way through the process keeping you updated on progress and always happy to talk.
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.
Super accomodating and helpful, quick responsen from the staff and great quality intens
My second gambeson from SM (the perivous one I ordered about four years ago and it's still serve me well). As usully, perfect craftmanship and customer service.
Satisfied with this gambeson. Way more comfortable and light than I expected. Despite of three layers of padding it does not sweat out too much. Fastenings are sewn firmly and cast bronze buckles are really beautiful (honestly, I thought there'll be kind of cheap "golden"-colored clasps, but no). Well done, guys, conrats! Will buy more from here!
The quality of this gambeson is very good. The adjustement made to fit with my measurements are perfect. I 'm completely satisfied by this product. The customer follow up was excellent. I recommend
An excellent item! Three layers of linen keep me snug and warm, and though it felt a little tight at first, I quickly got used to wearing it!
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 :)
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.
I am very happy with this gambeson. The choices of material are nice and it fits nicely.
I'm totally satisfied with this doublet! Very good tailoring and qualified customer service. It took 1 month to get my order - quite fast as for tailor-made item:) Thanks so much!
It is my first experience in buying armor online and I’m more than happy)) Best quality I have ever seen and seizes are as they must be. Real custom armoury. Thanks for your help with measure instruction and for sure I’ll recommend you to all my friends and teammates!!
I received my outfit yesterday and am completely in love with it! It fits good, colors are beautiful and fabrics are very soft (cloak is sooo comfy!)) Thank you Steel Mastery!
I got my brigandine just in time and very happy with it. Excellent service and outstanding work, compliments to blacksmiths!
Wow, this brigandine is superb! It is well-worked and materials are so good! I have it with titanium plates and it is lighter than I expected. Very good fitting and very practical design. I am so happy to have it. Highly recommended!
I just got this armor and must say it is impressive! Every piece is excellent and all together fits me very good. my complimets to crafters:)
Khatanga is absolutely outsatnding; crfatsmanship shows through every stitch and rivet. I was afraid it will be a bit heavy but it is very comfortable and fitting is really good. Lots of compliments to all Steel Mastery team
Super cool brigand armor! I have it with titanium plates and black leather cover. It is light enough and holds the hits good, I'm totally satisfied. I also have Asian style padded coat from this store and must say it is the best choice for wearing under this khatanga. It took about 2 months from placing of order till receiving of my armor and it's totally ok as for this custom armor. Big thanks to artisans!
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
Thank you so much for this brigandine, I'm expressed! Nice custome fit, it looks beautiful and workmanship is outstanding. Look forward to order more from you shop.
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.
I would like to thank all the team of Steel mastery for this armor! As I'm quite tiny girl I had doubts that brigandine will fit me good and be comfortable and not too heavy (however it's a bit heavy, lol)) But workmanship is remarkable, size is very good and there is really great customer support:)
Brigandine looks good, fits good and protects good. Excellent quality of materials (i have it with leather cover and cotton lining, with stainless steel plates 1.5); also i like the option of changable spaulders. Highly recommend fo SCA fighters.
Got my brigandine and its fits perfect, just like a glove. Will order more from Steel masters in the future.
I ordered a Brigandine and wasn't disappointed. Very pleased with a quality item. Would definitely order from them again and would recommend them without inhesitation.
Achetée en bleu & rouge, titane. Travail ahurissant de perfection, solide et magnifique ; une vrai pièce pour un paladin ! Le travail de customisation est génial, le suivi est très appréciable (et évite les erreurs) !
Juste Perfect ! Very nice work, beautiful built, light as mithril :) !
My brigandine arrived yesterday and I like it very much! Very beautiful work for a good price. Now just have to test it in combat:)
I am completely satisfied with this brigandine. Quality of materials is superb, fit is good. All seams are firm, belts are riveted firmly as well. Price is also perfect for this custom thing. Thank you!
High quality for a good price. Measures and choices have been respected. Really nice fabric, leather and metal pieces! Perfect work, thank you very much!
Really satisfied, the quality of work done is beautiful, it cash very well shock
I am very satisfied with work, compliments guys! Etching is very fine, fitting is the best (i wear it on the thin padded doublet) and i can move quite free. Thanks!
I adore this gambeson - it's practical and has so nice fitting. A special thanks to friendly client support. Steel Mastery, you rock, guys! Will definitely order more from you!
Big thanks to the whole team! This corazzine is one of the most splendid armor I've ever had!
The armor is solid and quite handsome. Great product.
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.
I was the first to command this brigandine, she is perfect, well formed, solid and resists well to shocks ! Elegant and noble, I recommend it to all knights of high rank !
the brigandine arrived today. It fits perfectly. Thank you and the crafters very much.
Hello, I have received my brigandine and I can inform you that I am extremely satisfied with the quality. It both fits and looks amazing. If I had the money I would definitely buy from steel mastery again. : )
I got my brigandine and very satisfied with it! Quality workmanship and materials (I have it made of beautiful wine red velvet with brass rivets). Staprs are strong enough. Also a big thanks for additional rivets and straps.
Brigandine fits perfects and keeps ups with the hits. Thank you!
I have had extremely good value from my purchase of this brigandine, it has a vast array of customisation and it is very comfortable and relatively light to wear. Barely feel hits in combat, with only minor exterior damage to the brigandine from time to time. Extreme ease of use, no need to make someone your squire for 20 minutes 5 straps is all it takes. In and out under 3 minutes. Have worn this brigandine for 8 hours straight with only minor exhaustion during the day. Does get heavier in the later hours. Used to own a gothic platemail, but cleaning and maintenance weren't for me. Not a huge fan of coat of arms hiding armor either, so the brigandine was a very good compromise between both. Would recommend stainless steel as a upgrade since you cannot clean the steel inside and the upgrade is very affordable. If you are looking for good protection, ease of use, low maintenance, high quality and good pricing, look no further. The brigandine is the piece of armor you seek.
Perfect quality. Fast delivery. Ann you are the best! Thank you for all your help!
I received my vest today and it is just awesome! It fits my torso perfectly and I do love color of leather (brown) - it looks really authentic and medieval! Thanks a lot!
I'm impressed with this padded vest:) Materials are perfect, leather is quite soft. All is fantastic, thanks!
Awesome padded jack, exactly what I ordered. It fits perfect; high quality leather and good stitching. VEry professtional customer sevice. Thanks Steel MAstery. Will be ordering more from your shop.
Both linen and cotton are great quality and tailored to fit you. They will hide under your clothes easily unlike other braies that will bunch up and show under your clothing. Making these braies a great choice for your outfits.
Fitting is good for my measures, materials are perfcet. Always prompt replies, reasonable price. I am completely satisfied.
I got my gambeson within 1.5 months and very happy with it! All stitches look firm; lacing is a bit thin but I may easily replace it with a new if required. I was trying it a couple of time for my archery trainings and it's perfect! Thanks to all Steel MAstery team!
