Review about items
I would like to thank all the team of Steel mastery for this armor! As I'm quite tiny girl I had doubts that brigandine will fit me good and be comfortable and not too heavy (however it's a bit heavy, lol)) But workmanship is remarkable, size is very good and there is really great customer support:)
Brigandine looks good, fits good and protects good. Excellent quality of materials (i have it with leather cover and cotton lining, with stainless steel plates 1.5); also i like the option of changable spaulders. Highly recommend fo SCA fighters.
Got my brigandine and its fits perfect, just like a glove. Will order more from Steel masters in the future.
Brigandine fits perfects and keeps ups with the hits. Thank you!
I just got mine in the mail and I love. The custom tailoring makes for an excellent fit and it has quality construction.
Love the style of this doublet! Big thanks to tailors, it fits like a glove and so comfy! Special thanks to customer service manager for her kind and useful answers to all my questions:)
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.
Excellent quality, quite fast delivery (as for custom thing), spot on fitting. Will order more from these guys.
excellent item, fit and quality. even added some customisations that aren't on here. Also managed to get this to me sooner than expected. I cannot recommend steel mastery enough
This padded gambeson is perfect!. It is superb quality and workmanship. I have recommended you to all my comrades!
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.
Hello! I received the gambeson today. It is in perfect conditions and the measures are ok. Thank you!
Absolutely delighted with your service, the quality of gambeson, the packaging and the amazing pricing. Will definitely order something more from you again.
This is an amazing gambeson made by skilled armorers. I would buy from seller again!
When mine arrived it was perfect! I’ve never been happier!
I'm totally satisfied with this doublet! Very good tailoring and qualified customer service. It took 1 month to get my order - quite fast as for tailor-made item:) Thanks so much!
The gambeson was tailored exactly to my needs and is just great. I definitely recommend it and will order again once the need arises. :)
Wonderfully built, very snug but no restriction on movement. Good looking gambeson as well.
I have received it. Its quality is superb. It fits like a glove. I love it. Next time I add anything to my swordfighting kit, I will budget for Steel Mastery, though that might take a while. Thanks for everything
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.
I am very satisfied of the products and will order on Steel mastery the next time
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.
Communication was excellent and the gambeson is amazing!!! +++++ Will buy again!!
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.
Absolutely awesome gambeson. The fit is 100% on point and the material is very sturdy. I highly recommend steel mastery!
Very satisfied with the service at Steel Mastery! I opted to have extra buttons and additional length and they were more than happy to make the adjustments for me.
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)
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.
Good workmanship and nice materials, though it is a bit heavier than I expected (3 layers and leather cover).
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 ordered this for a number of reasons (style, color options and more protective than my other gambeson) and am very satisfied with the result. I can tell I'mma get a lot of use out of this in my HEMA group
I just receiv the gambeson, and it is amazing ! Thank you, you and all the team, for it ;)
I do all my online medieval shopping with Steel-mastery and I'm never disappointed. They are the best. Quality and service is the best. Return process is really easy and simple. I ordered the wrong style gambeson, so I just paid for shipping and additional cost for some options that I needed. Thank you guys, for your understanding and patience.
Tested in combat and really confortable. Made to measure and fast delivery. Very well attended also. I'll definitely buy from Steel Mastery again!!
I received my gambeson and I am very happy. It is really comfortable and beautiful.
Trotz engen Sitz gut beweglich. Mit zwei Schichten Polster ausreichend für platte oder brigantine . Schön leicht aber warm. Ansonsten bin ich sehr zufrieden.
Very satisfied about them ! Nice color, i'm moving freely, excellent quality
Fit perfectly, very comfortable, and durable! got mine 2 Layers thick & I still feel some sting and impact of practice weapon but otherwise fine!!
Tight fitting with no restriction to movement. Well built, and warm, very warm.
I ordered these chausses and they came as promised. They were of excellent construction. If you live in a warm climate, however, be sure to only get 1 layer of padding. I got two layers and it was quite thick. I had my seamstress friend cut out one layer of padding. I may have her open up some vents too, but that's only because of the California heat. If thick, comfy padding is what you're after, this is the right product for you.
I just got this armor and must say it is impressive! Every piece is excellent and all together fits me very good. my complimets to crafters:)
Khatanga is absolutely outsatnding; crfatsmanship shows through every stitch and rivet. I was afraid it will be a bit heavy but it is very comfortable and fitting is really good. Lots of compliments to all Steel Mastery team
Super cool brigand armor! I have it with titanium plates and black leather cover. It is light enough and holds the hits good, I'm totally satisfied. I also have Asian style padded coat from this store and must say it is the best choice for wearing under this khatanga. It took about 2 months from placing of order till receiving of my armor and it's totally ok as for this custom armor. Big thanks to artisans!
J'ai reçu cette armure il y a peu de temps. Les finitions sont parfaites et la qualité de fabrication est parfaite. J'ai opté pour un modèle en tissus et en titane de 1 mm. J'ai choisi le titane pour des raisons de solidité et de légèreté. je souhaite utiliser cette armure autant en combat libre quand tournage vidéo de combat chorégraphié. Pour le moment je l'ai utilisé en combat d'entrainement et de démonstration et je ne suis pas déçu. Les plaques tiennent le choc sans problème. Donc pour finir un bon produit fait avec soin I received this armor recently. The finishes are perfect and the build quality is perfect. I opted for a fabric and titanium model of 1 mm. I chose titanium for reasons of strength and lightness. I want to use this armor in free combatand also in choreographed video shooting. For now I used it in training and demonstration combat and I'm not disappointed. The plates hold the shock without problem. So to finish a good product done with care
I have had extremely good value from my purchase of this brigandine, it has a vast array of customisation and it is very comfortable and relatively light to wear. Barely feel hits in combat, with only minor exterior damage to the brigandine from time to time. Extreme ease of use, no need to make someone your squire for 20 minutes 5 straps is all it takes. In and out under 3 minutes. Have worn this brigandine for 8 hours straight with only minor exhaustion during the day. Does get heavier in the later hours. Used to own a gothic platemail, but cleaning and maintenance weren't for me. Not a huge fan of coat of arms hiding armor either, so the brigandine was a very good compromise between both. Would recommend stainless steel as a upgrade since you cannot clean the steel inside and the upgrade is very affordable. If you are looking for good protection, ease of use, low maintenance, high quality and good pricing, look no further. The brigandine is the piece of armor you seek.
Fantastic quality and overall a beautiful brigandine. The customer service is also great as well. They'll update you all throughout the process!
I ordered a Brigandine and wasn't disappointed. Very pleased with a quality item. Would definitely order from them again and would recommend them without inhesitation.
Achetée en bleu & rouge, titane. Travail ahurissant de perfection, solide et magnifique ; une vrai pièce pour un paladin ! Le travail de customisation est génial, le suivi est très appréciable (et évite les erreurs) !
Juste Perfect ! Very nice work, beautiful built, light as mithril :) !
My brigandine arrived yesterday and I like it very much! Very beautiful work for a good price. Now just have to test it in combat:)
I am completely satisfied with this brigandine. Quality of materials is superb, fit is good. All seams are firm, belts are riveted firmly as well. Price is also perfect for this custom thing. Thank you!
High quality for a good price. Measures and choices have been respected. Really nice fabric, leather and metal pieces! Perfect work, thank you very much!
Really satisfied, the quality of work done is beautiful, it cash very well shock
Sehr gut verarbeitet passt und sehr stabil. Sieht auch Klasse aus. Bin sehr zufrieden.
Awesome armor! Sturdy but not too heavy. Fits perfect and provides good protection. And thanks to the front straps: you can actually put it on all on your own (which accelerates everything very well). Nice work, thanks!
the brigandine arrived today. It fits perfectly. Thank you and the crafters very much.
Hello, I have received my brigandine and I can inform you that I am extremely satisfied with the quality. It both fits and looks amazing. If I had the money I would definitely buy from steel mastery again. : )
I got my brigandine and very satisfied with it! Quality workmanship and materials (I have it made of beautiful wine red velvet with brass rivets). Staprs are strong enough. Also a big thanks for additional rivets and straps.
I purchased mine three years ago. And, I could not be more happy with it. I have used it in countless combats and it has always protected me. It is dented and beaten no. But that makes it all the more realistic. Buy one. You will love it.
It's really nice replica, workmanship is fantastic. Helm is light and fits my head perfectly. I added aventail so low-face is also protected now. Thanks a lot
Bought this second hand from a colleague, drilled extra air holes for better breathing and wore it in IMCF 2018 world championships. It is a tank and has taken extreme blows and I've never felt a bit. Love this lid.
Great helmet!!! Steel-Mastery you are the best.
I ordered this helm with some changes. The face plate on mine has squarish holes for the eye slots. The production time of my helmet took twice the length advertised however, Steel Mastery did compensate me for my time by adding brass accents and an aventail as a bonus. The helmet and faceplate were heatreated. The only modification I had to do was to add a retaining strap for the faceplate.Their staff was very friendly to deal with and would write me back within one to two business days. I would recommend them. I am very happy with my bascinet. I have used once so far in SCA type point combat with blunt steel weapons and it held up fine.
This was my first order from Steel Mastery and that helm tops all expectations! I am really impressed with craftmanship and so perfect fitting. Great thumbs up!
I ordered this armet of stainless steel and with extra breath holes on the left cheek. Special thanks for sewn cotton liner (don't have to do it by myself, lol). Perfect fit and workmanship, thanks to all Steel Mastery team!
Very well made, fits perfectly over my gambeson. Looking forward to more pieces from Steel Mastery.
Hello, I wanted to inform you that the goods have arrived safely and that we are satisfied with the quality. Thanks as well for adding additional pieces.
I got order today and satisfied 100%! My compliments to crafters for very beautiful qork. Armour fits perfect, it is light and all movements are comfortable. Thanks!
I ordered this armor in the same colour and it looks even better than on photos! I love it! VEry comfortable and fits perfect. Sales communication is also on point. Completely satisfied!
Quality at the top, more than pleasant service and measures at the top I would not fail to recommend steelmastery to my medievist friends who do not know him yet
Perfect liner, completely made by custom measures. Made very fast and also sent with fast shipping. Highly recommended.
Great liner, just what I needed, surprisingly fast shipment, highly recommend!
The product exceeded expectations. The workmanship is excellent and I'm happy with the item. The process from initial order to delivery has been easy and well communicated. Thanks SM.com
Got these because after the summer events I realised full padding was suffocating. Perfect for events during heat waves
PERFECT!! Thank you very much! You do beautiful work and I highly recommend you!
Astounding mobility and very comfortable cut, in my opinion beating even modern-made karate and elastic sports pants. Linen version breathes excellently and despite material being a bit coarse at first, does not chafe since the cut is so generously roomy. I made a small 10-second modification by cutting off the wrappings attached to ankles, since I feel tying them is much easier when both ends of the wrap are free to use. And when wearing longer boots they are not even needed.
Ordered this for a wedding, and it turned out much better than I could have hoped. I was able to pick the colours I wanted, as well as what kind of embroidery from what they had available. Delighted at the quality!
I received this beautyful linen dress today, nicely wrapped in kraft paper and an ancient stamp that shows the passion for ancient times. It fits perfectly, thank you. I like to add that the communication via é-mail is pleasant and helpful !
Steel Mastery also realize special wishes. I have chosen a special silk fabric and now I have a wonderful cotte to wear! And again it fits perfect and is sewn very carefully with a very high quality! Steel Mastery and its crafters are a very good Team!
Wonderful stockings for a perfect authentic medieval outfit. I am completely satisfied - perfect fitting and a wonderful fine linen fabric!
Both linen and cotton are great quality and tailored to fit you. They will hide under your clothes easily unlike other braies that will bunch up and show under your clothing. Making these braies a great choice for your outfits.
I am very happy with this beautiful armor and completely satisfied with carfters' work. IT is heavy, yes. but fitting is perfect and i can move in it. Thanks to all team!
I would like to thank you all of team! This armor is awesome, absolutely what I was hoping it would be! Just fantastic craftmanship, I'm really impressed! All parts fit me perfecrtly (I wear it over the thin doublet, also from Steel mastery:)) and despite it's heavy enought, it's quite comfortable to move in this armor. I am totally in love with this piece of art! Thank you, thank you!
I finally got my armour and it is flawless! Pros and cons: + custom made steel armor which really looks authentic + fits all my measures + possibility to choose customization (I have it of steel 1.5 mm, mirrow finish, brass rivets and red belts. And it is just WOW!:) + top customer support. Always quick replyes, updates on the status of my order + spare parts - belts, rivets and a couple of buckles The only one minus is a waiting time. Manager estimated making time so I was ready to wait. Anyhow if you order such armor for some event, so do it well in advance:) My deepest gratitude to all Steel mastery team for this fantastic work. I am satisfied 100% and will recommend you to all my comrades for sure.
Everything went perfectly. Items that I ordered were received in a perfect condition.
My first grand purchase from Steel Mastery (before that I was ordering gambeson, brigandines and plenty of small padded things from them. Every time super quality and service). So when I finally decided to treat myself with a plate armor, there was only one shop which i knew will make it perfectly. Also I knew that it tooks not a month (or even two) to craft such armor. ANyhow, it costs every penny and every day of waiting. I received my order in 6.5 months, every piece was carefully wrapped, packages were easily tracked. Special thanks for client support - always fast answers, great help with all my questions before ordering. Fitting is flawless; armor's completely mobile (I'm able to walk, sit, jump etc.). It is heavy, indeed. But what's expect from such metal shell?:) I do highly recommend Steel Mastery as qualified and responsible shop.
Beautiful helmet, fantastic quality. Yes it's a little bit more expensive than your off-the-shelf armour stuff, but it's custom-made to your measurements which more than justifies the price tag.
It is my first experience in buying armor online and I’m more than happy)) Best quality I have ever seen and seizes are as they must be. Real custom armoury. Thanks for your help with measure instruction and for sure I’ll recommend you to all my friends and teammates!!
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!
This tailor made helmet has comfortable weight, guarantees good vision and air circulation. Easy to fix both gridles. The padded inlay fits perfectly. The helmet won't move sideways even with open chin gridle. Also one doesn't need an extra hair cap. Prize is more than reasonable. The process of order and payment was easy online. Every step was documented and shared, often via photoes. If necessesary, clarification of details preferred or the bill was made prior executing next steps. My wishes have been met fully. The order arrived safe and undamaged due to smart wrapping. Codes provided made delivery tracking online easy. Overall I was not only a customer but found myself in every step in the best hands. FIVE STARS!
I received exactly what I wanted. The seller is very responsive and kind.
Arrived today and i can have no complaints. The shirt looks great and exactly what i ordered. Just have to save up and work out what i want next. Many Thanks
My compliments to all steel-mastery team! I was a bit concerned to purchase custom-made armor online but it fits excellent! High quality craftsmanship, good communication. I;m completely satisfied with service and my order. Thanks!
Great quality leggings, very comfortable and the leg wraps help to keep the lower legs firmly in place :)
This shield is better than I could have hoped for. Excellent and well made design with beautiful decoration. Feels strong in your hand and is made from solid materials. It looks great in the pictures, but it looks even better in person. The decorative shield paint is very well executed. Everything about this shield has a nice look and feel to it. This shield would fit right in on the battlefields of medieval history .
It was a long wait but in the end it was definitely worth it. I got it shipped to north america by the way. Anyways fitment was perfect, the leather straps feel strong and look great. The padding is nice and thick. The cotton feels high quality. Im so happy with this hood. Going to put this one through hell and back wish me luck!
Just got these in last night and I already LOVE them! Thank you and everyone involved so much for your time and diligence.
I'm probably gonna have to get a bigger helmet to go over this, but thats the only downside I've had. A fine bit of padding for yer noggin!
Very satisfied about mine, well done, nothing to complain about! (It's around 1-2 layer of padding)
I had to get the padding that came with my helm removed for this, but its well worth it
Excellent craftsmanship, very comfy and very durable.
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.
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.
The hood is comfortable. It's also very big, even with custom head and neck measurements, so you can either wear it normally or conceal your face if you wish. It's light enough so you don't notice it much when having it down. Make sure you wear it far enough forward so it doesn't begin to slip back as you move around in it.
My first time ordering from Steel-mastery honestly I was very surprised. They are fast and nice, spoke to manager and the owner about brigandine. Had some questions). A lot of questions)) Great deliver and excellent quality.
Got this to match some padding to go over my bascinet, the material feels really nice and the colours are perfect. I kind of wish they had options for more customisation like patterned fabric or maybe some cloth falling down at the back as well but I knew it didn't have these, but I wanted a more simple design. Maybe in the future I can get something more complex for a different part.
These arms are really effective! You have done a great job, thank you!
Just to let you know the gambeson arrived today, and I am very pleased with the fit & quality. I will be recommending you to my friends! :)
I love the feel of linen in tunic they are always the right size. I love your custom sewing services. Steel mastery you are amazing.
Wonderful tunics, very nice workmanship, nice linen, beautiful colors!!!
Fits perfectly. My new favourite hat! Excellent service as well. Worth the wait.
Awesome piece of clothing! Great colour, great cut, great fibre. Very nice and unique piece, which will make my knight's apprellel a lot better!
Hi, just to inform you guys that i did receive my order, the result is really nice and i would like to give my congratulations to all the people involved in my order, well done, you did a fantastic job ! :) I give you all my best wishes and hope to deal with you again in the future !
Outstanding fabric, outstanding craftsmanship, perfect fit
I bought two of these. One in dark blue linen with wine red linen lining, the other in wine red wool with dark blue linen lining, both with small brass buttons. They both fit perfectly, the quality of the work and the materials outstanding, and the customer service is superb. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone looking for high-quality re-enactment clothing at very good prices
A bit long if you have a medium-frame like I do, however it certainly is resilient. I would advise nonetheless to use some braces to relieve back pains if you intend to use the belt to support plate legs.
Thank you so much for this brigandine, I'm expressed! Nice custome fit, it looks beautiful and workmanship is outstanding. Look forward to order more from you shop.
I just done some training in behourd. 15 min of fighting with 7 assault (2/2 fighters). The bracers are ok with only 3 lacers that are damaged but not totally. The brigandine is really cool and get just a cut of 1cm. A strong hit with à two handed axe on my ribs. No damage for me. Thank you to you and and you're blacksmith.
Awesome mitten, fits well, used in buhurt duel, strong enought to get my hand out of trouble. I recommend.
The brigandine is beautiful, perfect. Thanks a lot to the whole team!
Amazing quality, soft fabric and a very good fit! This chaperon will up your costume a notch for certain.
I bought the amazing Costume of Landsknecht and I got not that thing that I expected, it was completely amazing. Materials so soft and pleasant to the touch, I adore it . It fitted me well and the quality, oh it is just yummy . Definitely would order something again.
Perfect outfit and looks really authentic. Fabrics are high quality and fits like a dream. Quite long leadtime, but it is ok for custom made clothing.
Recently purchased the a set of laminar mittens. The craftsmanship and details are incredible!!!! Very nice and beautiful craftsmanship work!!! They feel and fit great, really love how they conceal and cover the hand. What I also like is that they seem easy to repair in case the leather gets damaged or if the straps break. Finally was able to test them on a light sparring match, love how they felt around the handle of the sword and the freedom of movement they offer my hands. Compared to other mittens & gloves that I have tried for practicing H.E.M.A. these gloves actually let me feel the handle of the sword and allow me to have a proper grip on the sword. So far so good and I am really satisfied with them.
I ordered this set in October and I get it in December. The measurement are really respected and the quality is fine. This 3 layers model is a very good protection. I fought recently in armor with it under and the 3 layers protected me as well. I took a hit on a weak point of the armor and i had no injury.
I ordered this set of gambeson and chausses. I must say that I'm very satisfied with the quality of product. My order was 3 layers, with all additional acessories, and all is as described. When I made my order, they contact me and send me informations for body measures. They even contact me back, to asure of one measure, that was a mistake, when I take a measure. Obviously they have some experiences. Production time was about 2 months , they shipped it with national post and took about one week to get it.
Very happy about this product. It's a bit warm when you pu it on, but the cloth breathes nicely thanks to its holes below the armpits. The buckles look resistant, and even tough you'll feel a bit stuck with your arms at first, you'll be able to wield a sword in no time (I tried, and it works fine) !
Amazing new find! Found this guys on medieval market in Orange. Bought some chausses and gambeson, just love them. Great quality, perfect fit. Will definitely be buying from them again!
Big thanks to the whole team! This corazzine is one of the most splendid armor I've ever had!
The armor is solid and quite handsome. Great product.
I would definitely recommend it. It was my first time buying armor online, easy to order and fast delivery, good packaging. I collected my order at Orange medieval market, so shipping was for free. I met there my manager, with whom I was doing the order and the owner of the store. They are very nice and reliable guys.
I was the first to command this brigandine, she is perfect, well formed, solid and resists well to shocks ! Elegant and noble, I recommend it to all knights of high rank !
Very nice buckle. While not a smaller (set) version of the Western European medieval buckle, XIV-XV centuries (https://steel-mastery.com/western-european-medieval-buckle-xiv-xv-centuries.html) they compliment each other well when used in conjunction. Solid buckle, well recommended.
Beautiful and very solid buckle. The images don't do it justice at all. Well worth every penny spent! Well complimented with these XIV Century buckles (https://steel-mastery.com/medieval-custom-brass-buckle-xiv-century.html) if making a larger piece.
Item was as displayed. The finish was as you would expect of a buckle for this period for that extra touch of verisimilitude.
I am satisfied with your work quality. I will recommend it to my brothers.
Excellent! Perfectly fits (L size). Precisely made, nothing left unfinished, or undone. Fast delivery, perfect communication. Recommending to all.
Very good product and quality. The gambeson fits perfectly. The woman shape is very well designed and the color is wonderfull. Thank you !
A tad tight, as in a bit difficult to put on. However, once you're in, it fits like a glove. You should be careful with the strappings (especially the one below your foot, if you have long feet like me) when you put on the chausses in order to not break them, even if they seem pretty resilient.
Received buttons quality work thank you so much
It fits perfectly, easy to move in and comfortable. I can't wait to put armor on it!
It fit perfectly, and the quality is amazing. The customization helped me get exactly what i was looking for. Definitely worth the money.
Ordered a 4 layer of padding long gambeson, i'm very satisfied with it. It fit me perfectly, i love the color I asked for (green and white), I even slept with it and it was sooo comfortable I love it
Well made and with nice coloration, I ordered it with quarter colors and fabric covered buttons and it looks really good, I especially love that they alternated the button colours against the colour of the background. It has a nice weight to it and will work well both for sparring and for looking stellar on the battlefield.
very nice crafting, effective and kind staff, i' m very happy:-). i chose standard sleeves, i recommand laced sleeves for use it in fight.
I'm vey happy with this gambeson. It's very well made, and everything about it fits perfectly. The customizable options really let you get exactly what you want, and customer service was very helpful. Shipping was also quite quick considering how far it had to go.
Good quality and a fantastic work! I ordered this gambeson for HEMA training and I'm very satisfied with the results. Highly recomended.
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 own this Gambeson for a month now and for me it is well worth the prize. The made to measure fit is comfortable and doesn't restrict movement. The finish leaves nothing to find fault with, stitchings are firm and no loose threads up until now.
I received this bag today, very quick delivery and excellent quality. Highly recommended!!!
Superb quality of materials and fantastic fitting (there's my first made-to-measure thing:) It looks amazing, it's very comfy! And customer service is the best one I've ever had) Keep it up!
Armor looks awesome and fits me nice. Client support is also on top. Will order more from Steel mastery in future
Beautiful work ! fit perfectly to me and awesome details ! Recommended !
The hat in white color is really what I was looking and searching for since quite a bit. I’m glad Steel Mastery was offering this type of headwear - it’s difficult to get white felt. The quality is good and the size (custom made) fits perfectly. The customer service was fast, friendly, patient and very obliging! It wasn’t my first purchase and will definitely not be my last. Thanks for the uncomplicated and open communication
I ordered this one in linen, brown and green colours. Nice seams and so beautiful ebroidering! Very pleased with customer service as well, so there is not the last my order from Steel-Mastery:)
My first Gambeson, quality at the top, more than pleasant service and measures at the top I would not fail to recommend steelmastery to my medievist friends who do not know him yet
Super accomodating and helpful, quick responsen from the staff and great quality intens
My second gambeson from SM (the perivous one I ordered about four years ago and it's still serve me well). As usully, perfect craftmanship and customer service.
Satisfied with this gambeson. Way more comfortable and light than I expected. Despite of three layers of padding it does not sweat out too much. Fastenings are sewn firmly and cast bronze buckles are really beautiful (honestly, I thought there'll be kind of cheap "golden"-colored clasps, but no). Well done, guys, conrats! Will buy more from here!
The quality of this gambeson is very good. The adjustement made to fit with my measurements are perfect. I 'm completely satisfied by this product. The customer follow up was excellent. I recommend
An excellent item! Three layers of linen keep me snug and warm, and though it felt a little tight at first, I quickly got used to wearing it!
I use my gambeson for sword fighting. It is resistant, protects well and fits me perfectly. During the whole procedure, I had an excellent follow-up and I received my order on time. What more ? I am very satisfied of what i ordered :)
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 am very happy with this gambeson. The choices of material are nice and it fits nicely.
I received my outfit yesterday and am completely in love with it! It fits good, colors are beautiful and fabrics are very soft (cloak is sooo comfy!)) Thank you Steel Mastery!
Fine quality. Haven't used it in action yet so I can't say about the durability. But the bag looks and feels amazing.
I'm super happy with my amazing gambeson! All contact with the steal mastery has been absolutely fantastic from the time we met and took my measurements on the Wisby medieval market to the time that the gambeson came home to me in sweden. Thousand thanks!
I received my gambeson yestarday and it is amazing and very comfortable! It fits all my measurements and materials are so good. Nothing wrong at all, just what I expected to get:) Thanks!
I just wanted to say BIG THANKS to all Steel Mastery team for this awesom gambeson! I have it with two layers, royal blue linen (color is even better and brighter than I expected!), good stitching and fit is simply FANTASTIC! And I like the idea of laced sleeves: as a result I got two for the prce fo one - super comfy gambeson and padded jack:) Love this gambeson to bits, thank you guys!
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 ;-)
Wow so WOW!! Awesome excelent gambeson!! Thanks so much!! Its PERFECT!!! great work with best quality, all the way has deserve every step!! I use my gambeson for sword fighting. It is resistant, protects well and fits me perfectly....my friend told me "it fights alone" LOL !! During the whole procedure, I had an excellent follow-up always clear, fast and friendly. I am very satisfied of what i ordered ...Just PERFECT! and 100% recommend! Impresionante y excelente gambeson !! ¡¡Muchas gracias!! ¡¡¡Es perfecto!!! ¡Gran trabajo con la mejor calidad, todo el largo proceso ha merecido la espera! Uso mi gambesón para la lucha con espada: Es resistente, me protege por completo y me encaja perfectamente ... mi amigo me dijo "¡el gambeson lucha solo" LOL! Durante todo el procedimiento,el seguimiento y las respuestas de la tienda fueron siempre claras, rápidas y amables. Estoy muy satisfecha con el producto ¡Simplemente PERFECTO y 100% lo recomiendo!
Good and comfortable mittens, fast shipping and very professional customer service. Thanks!
I would like to thank all the Steel Mastery team! You guys made a fantastic job! This armor is the best thing I ever worn:) Craftmanship is on point, every piece fits perfect. And I really like blued finish:) Special thanks to client support for always quick replies and updates on status of my order. I recommend Steel Mastery to everyone who's looking for quality and authentic armor.
This is my actual coat of arms you made for me. I love it. It works wonderfully. thank you
great hand made item, fast production and shipping time, fitted me perfectly, great communications throughout purchase. Even arrived in brown paper string tied parcel with a waxed seal..a great touch. Highly recomend this product. Thank you Steel Mastery team :>
I am satisfied with my Royal Brigandine. It is carefully crafted and fits well. Also the small bag with the reserve for a repair is really great.
I received the parcel shipment. The small bag with the reserve for a repair is also really great. I am also satisfied with the Brigantine. Thanks for that!
I received my custom made brigandine and it is fantastic! Quality of materials and workmanship is very good. Specail thanks for a small bag with spare detalis (rivets, a piece of fabric, belt). great servise, guys, keep it up! Cheers from France!
I received my vest today and it is just awesome! It fits my torso perfectly and I do love color of leather (brown) - it looks really authentic and medieval! Thanks a lot!
Bracers are good, leather is perfectly carfted. Also its quite flexible so I may wear brace over more or less thick underarmor and regulate width with belts. Special thanks to professional and kind customer service manager who answered all my questions promptly.
Great product, very comfortable especially under the helmet, perfect measurements
Well crafted, fits perfectly, fast and good communication with the team, perfect thanks!
These are perfect, exactly as ordered and good quality. Took 6 weeks to arrive. Would definitely recommend and will order again.
Beautiful armor, I am very happy with it. Laces are strong; movements are free, general look of armor is awesome. Thank you very much!
The gambeson that I order is top notch quality and fits like a glove. They did absolutely fantastic work and I'm extremely pleased with the results. I would highly recommend them and will definitely be ordering from them again.
Fits me perfectly and seems very authentic. Materials are a very good quality and worth the money. Ive purchased cheaper gambesons from other sites and were very uncomfortable and restrictive. Not the case with this one. Amazing work.
...I remember designing that thing. xD Was a custom job done for me, nice to see that other people enjoy it too! Excellent work btw. Only thing that could be improved is shoulder mobility.
Very good work! Straps are hard, fitting is perfect. I am really satisfied with this gambeson.
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.
Perfect workmanship and nice quality of fabrics. Gambison is very comfortable, love it pretty much. Thanks guys!
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.
Fantastic in nearly every way. I recommend to anyone looking for that 'look' or style.
The gauntlets are awesome. I showed a lot of people at Pennsic War and they were oh and ah about them. Another person in my practice ordered these gauntlets too. He opted for the 1.5mm steel and I got the 1.0mm titanium. I would say that the weight difference is that the titanium is at least 2 kilos lighter per glove!
The gauntlets are a really spledit piece of work. They fit really well and are very robust. The whole process of the purchase went great and without any problems. Thank you again.
I am very satisfied with work, compliments guys! Etching is very fine, fitting is the best (i wear it on the thin padded doublet) and i can move quite free. Thanks!
Got my Close Helmet in the mail about a week ago. The Helmet fits perfectly, and the quality is absolutely stunning. I was not expecting it to be so perfect. Ill definitely be recommending this site to everyone I know. My only question, maybe it should be an email is if I could get the the name of the crafter who forged my Helmet as Id like to see other works he does.
This helm is absolutely beautiful! Workmanship is perfect! I was a bit afraid of weight but installed liner makes wearing very comfy and I feel myself well-protected. Well done, guys! Thank you!
I was very pleased with the quality and workmanship of the torse I received. They were very professional are careful in their communications to ensure that it was made exactly right. Could not be more pleased.
A fantastic belt with lovely detail on it, made to the length I specifically required. Steel Mastery provide excellent and prompt customer service, I would highly recommend them!
Hello, I got the belt, it is beautiful and fits me perfectly, thank you again Yana, I will recommend to you,
I adore this gambeson - it's practical and has so nice fitting. A special thanks to friendly client support. Steel Mastery, you rock, guys! Will definitely order more from you!
I'm impressed with this padded vest:) Materials are perfect, leather is quite soft. All is fantastic, thanks!
Awesome padded jack, exactly what I ordered. It fits perfect; high quality leather and good stitching. VEry professtional customer sevice. Thanks Steel MAstery. Will be ordering more from your shop.
As the original customer I have to say true craftsmanship! Its simply gorgeous, intimidating and EPIC at the same time! Just know it is HEAVY!!!
Fitting is good for my measures, materials are perfcet. Always prompt replies, reasonable price. I am completely satisfied.
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!
Finally I got this armet! workmanship is very qualitative, fitting is perfect. Now just have to test it in fighting:) Thanks to all steel Mastery crew!
This helmet is just WOW! Craftmanship, size and fitting, material - everything is on the top! Congratulations to artisans! I will order more stuff from you,guys!
I ordered a single-layer padded cap and it is a perfect fit. I particularly like the way the cap is cut so that it lies on, and protects, the forehead. Workmanship is excellent and the cap looks great! i would definitely order padded items fromSteel mastery.
Quality at the top, more than pleasant service and measures at the top I would not fail to recommend steelmastery to my medievist friends who do not know him yet
Very good product! Very comfortable! Made them with horizontal seams. Love the natural (uncolored) fabric! Support system fast and kind. Great communication, service and kindness. Very satisfied.
Excellent craftsmanship! I am very happy with my lamellar armor and the customer service is also very good.
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.
My brigandine was finished and shipped within 4 months of ordering. Kept in contact with steel mastery’s team and received steady updates on the state of the brigandine. The craftsmanship of my armor was pleasing to the eye while still being able to take a beating.
These would sell like hotcakes if more people knew about them. I was searching for exactly this but only found it when they recommended it in an email. It's perfect for what I need but a little tighter than I expected it to be. The material feels strong which is all it needs.
