Review of: Riveted Dark Aluminum Mail Armor Coif

Best costume coif I've ever seen! Light, sturdy and a great color. The aluminum is sealed in a way that even seems like it will prevent snags, etc., in additional to minimizing oxidation.  Highly recommended... in honesty, I wish I could afford the full hauberk! All aluminum chain mail should be made this way.

Review of: Augsburg Suit of Armor

Ever since I was a little kid, I wanted a suit of armor in my room or house. After looking around, I saw that Windlass was offering this decorative suit. Unlike so many junky suits I have looked at, yours truly seemed like a historically accurate one. Well, it arrived yesterday! After cleaning the shipping oil off of it, I put this bad boy together! I was like a little kid again! I put him in my office, so I can look at it everyday! This is a beautiful suit!! I had no want to wear it, so this type of suit saved me money (got it on sale!) but looks like it came from an old English castle! Now I'll have to save up for maybe a wearable one, too! LOL

Review of: Battlecry Soldier’s Buckler

Initially I was leery of buying this product due to the gap between the boss and the rest of the buckler, but my concerns were unfounded. I got two of these when they were on sale for the deal of the day and I have been more than pleased with them. They are well balanced and the grip fits comfortably in my hand. The grip runs across the back of the buckler, keeping a low profile and offering great control over the buckler. Overall it is solidly built, able to stand up to the rigors of sparring. This is my new favorite buckler and I look forward to getting more for my club!

Man this thing is sturdy! They said it's 18ga, but mine measures .0625~, which is closer to 16 gauge, so no complaints there! Fit and function are great, awesome!
