    It is beautiful when polished and you use oil on it. I used a bit of WD40 on it and fell in love with the armor.
    There is leather straps that are attached it and they used what feels like real leather which I enjoy a lot.
    The metal feels strong and safe for my protection.
    The black finish of the armor is really dark which is what I was going for and enjoy.

    It came covered in dirt mixed with oil and in the jams there was crud built up. I had to seriously clean it and in some spots it looked like little bits of rust which I did not like as it’s supposed to be new. I feel like they dropped the ball on storing the item and maintaining it. I understand the oil is supposed to protect it, but why the dirt?
    The inside is rough looking and not as beautiful as the outside, it’s not really a big deal but it is also very rough.

    I love the chest plate as It is my first piece of armor in my life besides a gambeson. As someone who loves fantasy and the medieval era, this is a real treat. I am sure you will enjoy it.

    I look forward to collecting the other pieces in the set.
