Review of: Leather Jerkin

I am 5'10" and 155 lbs. I have a slim build and the Size M fits great over my other padded shirt. It feels heavy and well made. I wear it for my Viking costume for DragonCon and other cons.

Review of: Legend Vest

Sizes trend very small. Got my XL  b/c 2XL ( my shirt size) not available.  12" Gap in front, unable to close.  Doubt a 2XL would be close either,  I am not huge. 2XL shirts suit me fine. Just sayin... otherwise , quality very good.

Review of: Leather Jerkin

Excellent craftsmanship; the leatherwork details are very well done. No unnecessary ornamentation (fitting with the target period).

As others noted, as there is currently no L size available, I ordered an XL.  The XL was quite large, and I didn't want to hire a leather worker to resize it, so I returned it and exchanged the XL for a M hoping it too would run a little large. The exchange was easy and I was sent the new M jerkin within two-weeks.  

The M fits me fairly well; slightly tight in the chest, and I will need to lose 10lbs before the next event. The straps are adjustable only to about an inch, though there is room to pierce an extra hole with an awl.

I plan to wear this item with the padded shirt also sold by MRL.

Review of: Leather Jerkin

I bought this as a "Deal of the Day" and it was a really great deal. It would certainly be worth the regular price as well, but getting it for so much less made it even better!
This is a really great product. The leather is supple and beautifully tanned and it is cut well for a really nice fit. I have yet to wear it without receiving compliments on the quality and authenticity. Excellent piece.

The vest is great.  Fits good, looks good and he loved it.  The pirate things were for his B'day.  He loves them all and will go great with his pirate outfit. Also, I was pleased with the speed of shipping.

Review of: Scoundrel Long Pirate Vest

Very well made and is as nice looking when it arrived as in the catalog. The only issue is the large is a little to big & the medium is to small.
