    This is a very fine product…does its job well. This fits perfectly under my plate armor, and really keeps my gorget from pinching. It is quite thick, and the collar actually stands up a bit taller than the pictures suggest. I would say about 3-1/2 to 3-3/4” inches in the back. It’s quite warm, but if you live in a cooler environment, no prob. Because of its thickness, it may present a problem with wearing some helmets that come down to neck level. Overall…very good for the price!…….Mark M.

    Effective and menacing when combined with the rest of the Leopold set. I recommend tying each end of the drawstring in a simple knot upon delivery to allow it enough room to open and slide over your head without having to redo the lacing each time (and to limit fraying). It is quite warm, so if you can wear light modern active wear or minimal classic clothing beneath it, do so. Sizing: The shoulder padding is wide enough to extend approximately an inch beyond me narrow, feminine shoulders, and the collar normally brushes the underside of my jaw despite my fairly long neck. The drawstring covers my sternum, and the 4 to 6 inches between there and my neck are covered by the collar, which naturally draws together, leaving less than a square inch of neck exposed.

    As was mentioned before, the collar is a little taller than it looks but it isn’t really a problem. It is very well made and will do it’s job perfectly.

    This is a very good product and great quality. The material is very think and seems a bit still when you wear it and would think it happens movement. The color does stand up rather high and may impeed wearing a low cut helmet. BUt its a great piece and was happy to buy it.

    I bought this to wear underneath chainmail and it’s amazing. I can barely tell I’m wearing the mail. I thought the standing collar would bother me but the material is so comfortable that it just ends up being cozy. I highly recommend this for underneath chainmail if you don’t want to go for the full gambeson.

    This padded mantle is a nice accessory, and versatile. As suggested in other reviews, the collar does stand very tall – the sides of it touch my earlobes. But the material is very soft and not abrasive in the slightest. The padding is VERY thick and plush, and should provide long-lasting, comfortable wear under a gorget, or even more so as an accent piece paired with a robe and cloak – as I did.

    I have not used it in the field yet but it appears as though it will work well. It is well made and has very thick padding. Only negative thing I have is I wish the collar was shorter. The one I received does Not match the Image. It’s Collar appears to be twice as high as the one in the Image. The collars actual measurement is 4 in. in the Back tapering to 3.5 in. on the sides and 3 in. in the front before the point it curves down. But for the price it is a very good Collar.

    Solid value and quality. A sturdy collar, thick, but pretty comfortable especially after you break it in a little bit.
