    Well shaped, great look, but could be a bit more sturdy.
    Review by Sunnmøringen Riksheim
    Well shaped, great look, but could be a bit more sturdy. Would like it to have been14 gauge instead of 16 gauge.

    Review by Alexander
    I purchased this breastplate together with some tassets which are also available on this site (very positive review for those as well) as i am piecing together a gothic/milanese suit of armour for reenactment purposes. I am not a fan of gothic breastplate as they are usually riveted with plackarts and i find this restricts movement and isnt terribly comfortable hence why i bought this breastmlate and separate tassets.

    I am incredibly happy with this breastplate as it covers your chest and stomach but doesnt restrict bending over or kneeling, its very lightweight and i assume rather strong as its 16gauge (perhaps for light combat but nothing too heavy). The straps are strong and well placed to distribute the weight evenly on your waist and shoulders so it barely feels like youre wearing anything at all.

    The stomach is rather globular which is perfect as it means there is a pocket of air between you and the plate so getting hit in the stomach shouldnt wind you (historically accurate!) Which is great if you have a beer belly or dont mind looking like you have one. Cant recommend this enough, especially with the tassets (which i believe are on this site for £129.00)
