My wife's a huge "Braveheart" fan, so added this to her 1/2 mannequin display.

Review of: Mordred 2 Piece Gambeson

Absolutely love this Gambeson!  The neck and cuffs are very high quality suede. As far as the colors of the Gambeson are concerned they are practically the same as what you see on the website or in the catalog. One thing that really attracted me was the overall gray color, it looks good with pretty much anything! 👍. I am a heavyset 5’8 tall 200 pounds ( mostly muscle ) 😊
and the S/M fits me like a glove. It was missing 2 silver (studs)? Anyway easy fix. Now the arms are thicker than the torso piece as far as protection. But that’s fine as I plan to wear a surcoat or possibly a sleeveless mail shirt. Overall an EASY 4.5 or 5 stars ⭐️. It fits right in with the rest of my MRL/ACC collection. Will be wearing it next month to our Scottish Festival representing Clan Stewart of Galloway, looks GREAT with my kilt. Off topic I live in Panama City Florida, and we were almost wiped off the map by Hurricane Michael, and cleaning, sharpening and oiling my MRL/ACC collection has helped me keep my sanity. 10th day without power but we finally got our internet. I am considering treating myself, (if funds allow), when the power and major shipping companies are back up. Perhaps the Sticklestad Viking Sword? Anyways now I’m rambling. This is an excellent Gambeson! Not just trying to get reward points here. I highly recommend it!!

Review of: Paladin Shirt Lightweight Gambeson

I called your company and someone recommended this shirt as an alternative to me wearing a heavy gambeson in the summer. This shirt is great!!! Heavy enough for under my chainmail but so much cooler than the heavy one I wear in winter. Great suggestion and easy to take care of, too!

Review of: Mordred 2 Piece Gambeson

I bought this piece because it reminded me of something that would have been worn in the Kevin Costner movie, Robin Hood-Prince of Thieves! This piece was so well made and is going to look killer at the Ren Fair this fall! Counting down the days!!

Review of: Baron's Gambeson

I bought this last year and it is a fine purchase.  Looks great, warm and high quality.  I would point out that it looks a bit off if you do NOT have chainmail or armour (well, that's what is was used for, right?!) so I would not use this as a stand alone item...I love it in all aspects though.
