I have this entire set and I am delighted with it. 1. Stainless steel is ideal for the humid environment in which I live,and 1.5mm is not only well within the range of historical armor thickness, it's also more than enough for HEMA harnisfechten. 2. The fit is excellent. The cuisses in particular are extremely comfortable, and when pointed to my chausses they are highly mobile and move effortlessly. 3. Of all Armstreet's sets of armor, this is one of the most historically accurate. It fits well into the fifteenth century as an example of the more conservative English and Italian styles (as opposed to the extravagant Gothic and Milanese), and is typical of the close fitting articulated harnesses often worn in modern buhurt. 4. The etching is absolutely beautiful, and obviously a highlight of this armor. It's also historically accurate. Although etched armor reached its high point of popularity and complexity in the sixteenth century, there is clear evidence that it started in fifteenth. Here are some sources to confirm this. * Sylvester Rosa Koehler and Grolier Club, A Chronological Catalogue of the Engravings, Dry-Points and Etchings of Albert Dürer, as Exhibited at the Grolier Club (Grolier club, 1897) * Gregory Jecmen and Freyda Spira, Imperial Augsburg: Renaissance Prints and Drawings, 1475-1540 (Ashgate Publishing, Ltd., 2012) * Catherine Jenkins, Nadine M. Orenstein, Fredya Spira, "The Renaissance of Etching" (Yale University Press: New Haven and London, 2019) * Bruce M. Griffin, “Chemical Milling of Aluminum,” in Encyclopedia of Aluminum and Its Alloys, Two-Volume Set (Print), ed. George E. Totten, Murat Tiryakioglu, and Olaf Kessler (CRC Press, 2018) It's probably unlikely that the fifteenth century saw etching of the extent and complexity on this armor, but the etching itself isn't totally anachronistic. 5. The arm harness moves very well, fitting comfortably over my arming jacket. 6. The build quality is excellent. There are no sharp edges, and the rivets are all tight. I have a few minor criticisms. * Contrary to the description given here, none of the rondels are detachable; the arm and leg rondels are riveted to their respective harnesses, and the besagues are riveted to leather straps hanging in front of the armpit * On one of the arms, the leather strap riveted inside the elbow is being pinched by the edges of the two lames which fasten to the elbow, which is gradually cutting into the leather; I will need to grind off part of the lames so they don't contact the leather * Besagues hanging from leather straps are historically accurate, but quite noisy when they collide with other parts of the harness, and often move out of place; I would have preferred besagues laced to the arming jacket, or laced or riveted directly to the pauldrons (all of which are also historically accurate) * The pauldrons use rivets to articulate the shoulder lames (providing excellent flexibility), and riveted leather straps for the lower lames; I would have preferred sliding rivets instead of riveted leather straps, since they provide a great deal more mobility (though I also realize this would increase the cost) * Although the arming points for the cuisses are placed in leather strips riveted to the cuisses (so the arming cords pass through holes in the leather, not the armor itself), the arming points for the pauldrons do not, they are drilled directly through the armor itself; these holes in the spaulders have thin edges, which have already almost cut through one of my arming cords, which would not have happened if the cord had passed through soft leather

Which greaves fit this set?

ArmStreet Team

Hello, full round greaves will match this set. However, they should be purchased together with the set so we can make them work together.

Hey Armstreet! How lengthy is the design process for the rondel etching? Could i get a coat of arms done on them?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Simon, please contact our support team with the picture of the design you would like to have so we could confirm we can make it.

What is the total weight of the Mythical Beat set? Also is there an option for shin guards?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Walt, it is 11 kg. You may order the greaves separately.

Can a breast and back plate be ordered to match

ArmStreet Team

Hi Cade, how about this cuirass? It comes without etching, but it can be added upon request (for the extra cost).

Does that black arming garment come with it as well?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Zach, the gambeson can be purchased separately in our store.

Would it be possible to custom order a pair of full wrap graves with matching etching to go with the mythical beasts armor set? I would be very interested if so. Wonderful design and thank you for your time.

ArmStreet Team

Hello Brian, yes, it should be possible. For this, kindly specify if these are the greaves you like: https://armstreet.com/store/armor/medieval-full-round-low-leg-armor-sca
