Tough and good looking, mobile and easy to don and doff. Excellent customer service.
I received mine earlier in the summer. It's visually stunning with red wool and is really well made. Fits perfectly. Cross body motion of the arms is not impaired. Ann the accounts manager did a fantastic job of keeping me updated even through the dark days of spring 2020. Great customer service.

I just got this piece of armor and I am completely blown away with how well it is built! It fits me just right and carries well on me so that I don't feel the weight at all. Started working through half-sword transitions, spear techniques and had no difficulty in pulling off these techniques. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good brigandine. I will also add that the customer service of Steel Mastery was incredible. They were informative, kept me updated, and facilitated my desires into this armor.
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!
