Pauldrons or spaulders can also be attached to the leather shoulder straps.

    I received the Galahad Steel Cuirass yesterday. Delivery was prompt, and the packaging was thorough, enough to cushion the various goods I purchased, as well as keep the shipping grease from getting all over the other pieces.

    As a note on the grease, seriously consider purchasing mineral spirits while you wait for this to arrive, if you have not already. You will want to clean it using the spirits and a cloth, making sure to get into all the small or covered areas too.

    Speaking of the covered areas, this cuirass is partially articulated at the waist, with four moving bands. Makes bending over somewhat more doable. The only restriction of movement I felt when wearing it with a padded gambeson and chainmail was in the underarms. I recommend you play with the tightness of the lower two straps, to avoid that tingling feeling in your fingers. Not good.

    The front and back plate come together nicely, and the tasset straps stow easily to the inside as pictured on this page. The piece is heavy, but once it is tight to your body, the weight spreads well. The only fit issue I have is the upper corners near the underarms, which I feel could be curved inwards towards the backplate slightly, though depending on your frame, your mileage may vary.

    One last note is that the black coating on the inside of the cuirass does have a tendency to flake off in spots where you contact it most. I recommend giving it a thorough cleaning as before mentioned, on a surface you can easily sweep.

    All in all, I love the look of the cuirass, and its articulated midsection. It is generic enough to match with other pieces, while having details that keep it special. The negatives I did find only made me want to sort through them so I could enjoy the piece more.
