Review of: Arming Cap, Quilted

Arming cap fits great I use it inside my fencing mask tightens up the mask so it turns when I turn my head. It being machine washable is why I chose this one.

Review of: Avenger Scale Gauntlets

Really like the look of the gauntlets.   With the way they are attached to the gloves you do loose some flexibility in the fingers.  But still very happy with them.

Review of: Tudor 16th Century Armet

This helmet came covered in oil (thats a good thing) It's very sturdy and smooth, the adjustment was very well ranged, got it to fit perfectly, the weight is far better than armet or closed helm I've ever seen. Love it, will be looking for more props here!

Review of: Spanish Morion Helmet

Really good helmet.  It's appropriately heavy, but very wearable.  The internal suspension feels comfortable and sturdy, and helps me appreciate the knowledge that went into building these things.  Also, I'm sort of an idjit: I was just thinking, "This thing needs a chin strap," but then I found it tucked into the lining.  Functional for experiments and budget reenactors.  Great for display.

Review of: Arming Cap, Quilted

Great arming cap. I wear it under my MRL Mail Coif and my MRL Visored Bascinet. Now the Arming Cap itself is a touch on the thin side, BUT if it were any thicker whatsoever my mail and helmet would be too tight. As of now they all fit perfect!! Not just trying to get reward points here. This arming cap is well put together and made to last, and mine has seen plenty of Renaissance Faires! Grab one,  you won’t regret it 👍😊

Review of: Leather Archer's Vambraces

Tough leather Vambraces are rather hard to find but these fit the bill. The three piece set-up works wonderfully, and they absorb impact like a dream.
