    Excellent fit, easy to get into and out of when side straps are undone, you can leave sides straps attached but will probably need some help getting in and out of it.

    An excellent gambeson for the price. Fitting is spot on. Comfortable and protective. If you plan to wear this under chainmail you’ll need to give yourself a break-in period.

    I love it! It feels very crisp when wearing it around. The only thing is that it looks like it was around moisture in their warehouse or store because some of the side strap buckles had signs of rust on arrival that also stained the padded garment around them. Otherwise, I love it!
