This gambeson is amazing. Not only does it look and feel great, but it is also a work of art. This is the first time I ordered from Steel Mastery, and it will NOT be the last. I would highly recommend for anyone looking for quality armor.
I couldn't be more satisfied. I ordered a 3-layer doublet for use in HEMA. The quality is without second - durable and well-stitched. The fit is perfect - it allows full range of motion in the arms, shoulders, and across the back without issue. The customer service was also fantastic. Absolutely well done!
It's perfect I bought from the site and Anna made herself available on all my requests I'm recommending to all friends who make historical reinterpretations to buy from her .. 5 stars are few thanks Anna
I ordered this for use in HEMA. I wanted something more traditional that would also suit HEMA practice. I got the HEMA 350 N material on the outside and the linen on the inside and three layers of padding. The three layers is a little light compared to most Spes jackets made for longsword fencing. While not ideal for competition the level of protection is more than suitable for regular sparring and training. But let me tell you, the quality of construction, the fit and the customization are unparalleled. I feel like, and I am, wearing a work of art. I can't recommend it enough. The only thing I would change is to add arming points on the elbow compatible with most hard elbow protection used in HEMA.
