Just got it, and I am beyond pleased with the craftsmanship! The leather and metal bits are very nice, though I wish the silver swirls on the shoulder were a bit less sloppy. Overall, it looks incredible when put on and moves beautifully when you walk.
Also, for all the fem!Ezio cosplayers/female LARPers: the cape doesn't fit a woman's chest like it does in the picture because of the size differential. The straps are very long, and you can't tie it tightly at all. However, with a bit of finagling the cape will stay firmly in place. Tie it so the straps fit under the ribcage instead of the armpit, basically. The paudlron is also pretty huge on a lady and covers about half of the chest, but it still looks good. For all intents and purposes, this cape works just as beautifully for the ladies as the guys!

I apologize for my previous outburst, one of my friends showed me how its supposed to be put on and I apologize to anyone I offended. This piece is excellent when I got it correctly put on and it is worth having for any costume...

I had the Altair pieces from MR and was overall pleased, but some parts were a bit lacking most noticeably the leather parts. The cape from Ezio however completely blew me away when i got it. Its a beautiful piece, and the pictures don't do it justice. the metal accents are very well done and definately add to it. the only complaint i have is the silver painting on the swirls is a little sloppy. It is a little bit awkward to put on your self because of how difficult it is to tie it tight, but it isn't too bad. Love this piece and will likely be buying more of the Ezio pieces from MR. Though all the cloth pieces are far too large for me, even the S/M of the Altair pieces were swimming on me (I'm 5'9" but only 135 pounds).

Just got this via UPS yesterday. I'm learning to become a Bard and wanted something a little "Flashy" and this was just the style I was looking for. It would be nice to have something a little better than the leather straps to tie off but I can mod that myself easily enough. It looks very cool but now that I have it I think that it is a bit overpriced by as much as $50.00. Despite that, pretty cool...

I LOVE this piece! it is very good looking and easy to wear. The reason it is tied and not buckled under the arm is because the buckles would come loose very easily. Buckles have to be tight in order for them to work properly.
