    I'm posting this review on the Arthur Gambeson as a whole, as well as on all the individual pieces. First thing first - the arms run small(4 stars for accurate description instead of 5). I recommend buying the pieces of the gambeson separately with the arms up one size from the rest. I know it's 14 extra bucks but the ability to properly bend your arms at the elbow is worth it if you're doing SCA or other type of fighting. If you're just going to wear it to the ren-faire and not attach armor to it/fight in it, it should work fine with the arms of default size. For reference - I'm 5'8" 170lbs 44in chest, 36in waist and I got the medium set. I wish I'd gotten medium chest and skirt(tassets) with large arms. Overall - The gambeson is thick and rugged. It's honestly thick enough to wear as armor itself for those of you in the SCA who don't like wearing armor for the extra mobility. You'll still have to wear kidney pads and elbow covers as per the rules, but it will definitely take a lot of oomph out of strikes to unarmored areas. It's hot for sure. It's made of cotton and polyester, not linen and wool, so it doesn't breath super well, and it's thick. That's not necessarily a good or bad thing, just a heads up. The good thing about it being so thick and sturdy - You can point your armor directly to it without arming points. You SHOULDN'T do this, but you can, and I do because I'm lazy. I currently use only the skirt portion to protect my upper thighs and butt from wrap shots. It works AMAZINGLY to protect from butt wraps. I used to come home bruised from almost every fight practice, and now I hardly notice the shots. All that said, the grommets pop out fairly easily(hence the 4 star quality rating instead of 5). I've had to replace about 20% of the grommets on my first one. I purchased a second skirt recently(JUL2018) and the grommets on the newer one seem to be holding up better, but it hasn't been very long. It looks GREAT as a standalone piece to wear, and is functional as light armor or to put over your armor. 5 stars overall. Picture(you can see the skirt sticking out of the bottom):
