Does anyone have any experience with the gambesons from Steel-Mastery?http://steel-mastery.com/en/padded-armour/gambesons
I'm particularly interested in the HG-03 aketon
, the HG-04 aketon
and the HG-05 puffed sleeves gambeson
. There are a heap of options available and they seem to be designed and constructed quite well for the price when compared to the thin and formless low-end stuff usually available at those price points.
One of these, paired with a sturdy leather or fabric plastron over the chest (like the ones the Polish groups use over their gambesons) seems like a very good protective option alongside the raft of fencing jackets becoming available. But I want to see if anyone has tried one of these, or has recent experience with the service from S-M?
