Review about items
I ordered a 3 layer wool exterior cotton interior. The wool is very soft and I could have been just fine with the wool against the skin. The black leather and steel buckles seem high quality. While the shipping took forever (understandable due to a war) they still had great customer service and the product arrived just fine. I have not put the gambeson to the test yet so I will update my review after a time of use. First impressions are high quality 5/5
Great quality, I sent the wrong measurements originally and they offered to make a new one for free so great customer service!
