    This is a nice fitting gorget for the price. It swivels open smoothly, and the straps are heavy-duty. The leather is very stiff though, and quite short. It took me a while to figure out the CORRECT way to attach spaulders. (Instructions not included. Ha!) The look is quite austere…good for a simple ‘man-at-arms’ look. Overall, a nice product. Do yourself a favor and get a padded collar for underneath…you could get pinched. :)…Mark M.

    Very happy with this purchase. It is formed very well and fits nicely. The strap is a bit think and tough to open, so a little help may be needed. I got the Gustav Shoulders with it and the fit nicely together. Also came nicely packed in its oil to prevent rusting.

    Great, affordable piece for new entrants to LARP. I picked one up shortly before my first LARP event and got compliments on it. I’d recommend getting a shirt with a high collar just to prevent the metal rubbing against your neck, it’s not painful but it can be a little irritating. Highly recommend, looks great, good price. Simple, affordable way to make an outfit really pop.

    The space for my neck was adequate and it didn’t constrict me at all
    The straps are a bit confusing but practice makes perfect there
    I did have to bend it to shape a bit, but i am also a very large man and i have to do this with most armor i buy
    All in all, satisfied
