    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.

    The gambeson I got looks to be of finest quality. I can't wait to use it in action! It feels great when wearing it. My only "complain" is about the long production process (almost 13 weeks) but I can partly blame myself about that because I made my order in the market season.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

     Atte Lommi

    A well-made quality product, even when ordered in 5 layers the mobility is excellent and the fit great. At such thickness the gambeson is noticeably heavy to use, but using a belt makes the weight still distribute nicely. Due to this model overlapping, 10 layers (about 5 cm of padding) in front is plenty of protection. The long, flaring hem is rather stiff in 5 layers (especially at first), which makes it look a bit goofy but protects thighs very well on its own even when leg is bent enough to actually be in contact with the hem.

    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 shall start with noting the faultless quality; it’s in every stitch, warp and weft. I ordered a custom-fitted gambeson and gave my measurements and I’ve used it with steel weapons and on stage. It fits beautifully and really is very authentic. These were used for hundreds of years in the early mediaeval period. I highly recommend.

    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.

It has a nice weight to it and will work well both for sparring and for looking stellar on the battlefield.

    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 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 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 ;-)

    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.

    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.

    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!

    Absolutely love this gambeson. It fits perfectly and feels so flexible. The material is much nicer than other gambesons I've had in the past. I went for the linen option. The price was astonishing, it's much better than the more mass produced gambesons out there that cost about the same.
