 Ordinary Gambeson
Great quality! Fits perfectly and doesnt restrict movement!
Nothing bad to say about mine, fit like a glove, easy to move in. And as an added bonus, makes me look like i've been doing upper body at the gym!

This is made with a quality you can really appreciate at first glance! A perfectly sturdy and beautiful gambeson accurately fitted to your measurements for a really affordable price. Service is excellent too!
Daniel Joly
Were very accommodating with my requests and helping guide a new customer through the process. End product was great and I am very happy! Will be ordering something in the future for sure!
Wonderful quality! The padding is just right and it remains quite flexible. The cast buckles are sturdy and the arming points are in the right place for what I need. Gambeson's I've ordered from other places do not even come close to the performance of this piece.
Very good quality, perfect fit, great customer service. I recommend !
The gambeson I received was top notch. It fits perfectly, the arming points are exactly where I want them, and overall it just feels and looks good. If you’re looking for a gambeson, here’s the place for it!
Very top quality work and good service. The crafters followed every measurement and specification exactly as requested, and it definitely shows in how well the gambeson fits. Would recommend.
It fit me very well, very good mobility. Excellent quality, I recommend.
Perfect fit and craftsmanship, got this one in green and the color was perfect. More than satisfied!
A masterpiece! Very kind service, excellent quality of material and work and it fits perfect. Thanks a lot!

Good job, nice product, a bit long to wait , but nice when arrived
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
Dino elsberg
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!
