    Fabulous Deal! I bought this on a whim, thinking that, even if it was sub-par, I wouldn’t be out that much money in the long run. What a pleasant surprise! This thing is pretty darn good! Is it perfect? No. But it’s a nearly living history quality breastplate (and in steel heavier than 18ga for once!) for about a hundred bucks. It would be hard to find a better deal anywhere else.

    More items like this, please!

    Amazing value for your money I was skeptical about the quality of this breastplate at first, but figured that at its price, I wouldnt be losing much if it did not work as expected. Not only is this breastplate sturdy, but the sliding rivet allows some much needed mobility to your general movement, making things such as sitting down far less cumbersome. 16 gauge is alright, and ehile it could be a little thicker in order to take less dents, this breastplate has survived swords, axes and hammers suprisingly well. For how much it costs, the value cant be beat.

    Negatives: could do with a better fit, and you will have to make some of your own slight tweaks and modifications to get it to fit perfectly, nothing deal breaking, but extra pressure on the shoulders is an example.

    Please note that there is no backplate included with this breastplate.

    Pretty good. Putting together a hodgepodge of armor for some fighting and as such we’ve been modifying it a bit to make it fit my large frame. We did have to spread the armor a bit to make it a larger size and we also hit the edges to knock down some of the sharp points. For the price this is an excellent purchase. Just keep in mind you might have to work it a bit to make it fit perfectly for you.
