It took a while to come, which is very understandable, but when it did my gambeson was more than worth the wait! It fits wonderfully, and is easy to get on. The colour is lovely and has had several compliments already. Steel Mastery listened to all my requests and made me the perfect gambeson. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Fits perfectly and is exactly as i asked for. Wonderfully made not a sitch out of place. I highly recommend steel mastery for an amazingly made and fitted gambeson.
 Dan Green
Very high-quality work, perfect for 12th-13th century knightly harness. I went with the maximum padding, and I'm pretty pleased with the thickness even on the thinner arms. It's a lot lighter than I expected, but still feels like a good protective layer. The arms and mittens seemed like they'd be challenging to get a good fi with, but they're perfect, and the armor comes on and off way more easily than my cheap gambeson does; I won't have to do a several minute knight dance after all!

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.

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.
Chris Aartsen
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.
