The measurements were great and no problems at all. I am a little concerned about the strength when fighting with a longsword because I ordered a 3-layer one, so I probably should have ordered a 5-layer one. It may not be a problem if you use a one-handed sword.
Absolutely fantastic kit. They worked with me on my custom requests and met them flawlessly. Would highly recommend this shop for your armor needs.
