Well made! Heavier than it appears in the pictures. Runs small.
As another reviewer stated, this runs small. Go a size up to be able to move comfortably. I usually wear a M/L and in this case the L left me with exposed wrists and belly line - short and tight. The neck opening is also completely symmetric (front and back) which makes the fit slightly awkward. The pic makes it look like perhaps a lighter alternative to other gambesons on the market. While the construction may indeed be a tad lighter, it is heavier than it appears in the pictures. It appears to be well made, as far as the seems go and such. That's a good thing for it's assumed intended purpose of wearing under chain/plate in cool weather, not so much for wearing to the faire when it is 90+ degrees outside, lol.

Little Small
If you order this, go one size up. Aside from it being sized small, no complaints about the Gambeson. Perfect for the look I needed and when I discovered it was small, MR handled the exchange flawlessly. Been a customer for a while. Will continue to be.

Product does not have a high collar. Material wasn't great, sitting ripped immediately while putting it on. It looked good for a moment but I don't suggest buying it. Not worth the almost hundred dollars. I'm usually not overly critical of museum replicas items but I wasted 100 dollars on this particular piece. Unfortunately it was made so poorly I can't even return it, most of it fell apart... sad
