Ages Well!
I purchased this shield many years ago for reenactments and plays.  It is well constructed and still in excellent condition after several years of use.  It's a realistic size and compliments my Templar costume perfectly.  I highly recommend it!

Crusader wooden shield
Really nice shield for use with my Knights Templar outfit.  Well made and covered with linen or some other heavy fabric which adds a nice finishing touch.  The Cross painting in also very nicely done.  The wrist and shoulder straps are both made of heavy leather and firmly attached to the shield.  Excellent quality and very satisfied with this shield

Outstanding! Sturdy and gives great sense of authenticity
This is an outstanding piece.  I repainted mine:

It is very sturdy and well-constructed, overall.  Riveted straps feel solid and completely useable.  There is thick padding for the back of the arm.  If I were using it as a functional piece, this would give me some confidence in the shield.  I don't think it would stand up to serious abuse, but the historical originals wouldn't have, either.

The only possible knock on it is that the canvas it's covered with blistered a bit when I was painting it, but this is likely a function of the paint I was using and being exposed to the elements.  Not worth a deduction, though, since this is both outside of what it's designed to be used for and not even a serious issue.  5/5 - highly recommended.

Sturdy, has heft. Astounding.
Opening the box I didnt know what to expect. After layers of cardboard and shipping padding (not peanuts) I was incredibly surprised by how solid this piece felt. Strapping it to my arm was a surprise to be sure. The creatures I'd be ready to fight, I felt like a paladin in hell ready to hit evil head on. I ordered the non painted and got the painted cross. While not dissapointed I'm deciding if I'll paint it myself now. Pleased, pleased, pleased!

Templar shield worth getting
Nice looking shield, light weight. Has arm and shoulder straps. I am happy with the shield and would recommend for anyone wanting to complete a Templar Knight set up. Shield is very close to the shield used in the tv series Knightfall.

My boyfriend LOVES his Templar Shield. Excellent quality and truly realistic. He dressed as a Knights Templar when we went to a medieval faire. He was stopped by numerous people requesting a picture with him. Would love to post a picture of him in his Templar outfit of which many items were purchased via Museum Replicas.

Better than I expected, partly because so much from Windlass is a gamble. One item is a gem, the next thing, not so much. decent. Not sure how historical or how well it would hold up to abuse but its a shield and its strapped. At the right price its all good. Will note that the leather strapping is a bit on the small/tight side. At least for me. Because of this I end up with a few inches of arm at the elbow not behind the shield. My guess is that this is sub-optimal if the shield really mattered for protection. For something on the wall...all good!

My first impressions is that this shield will get the job done. It's long (protects to the knee), and is both lighter and thicker than I was expecting. This makes it easy to maneuver and doesn't fatigue the arm quickly. The craftsmanship seems very fine, though I the back strap could use a buckle, as it is very long; some instruction on how to use the tie strap and what looks like adjustment holes on the arm strap would be helpful, as well. I have yet to use it in combat, but have an event soon at which I hope to battle-scar its perfectly painted surface and may have more to say about it later.

This shield is everything you want it to be. The straps on the back are perfect. The shoulder strap is in the right spot. When I brought mine to the CT. Renaissance faire all the knights loved it. This shield looks as good as it does on the website.
