Absolutely stunning. A total showstopper of a piece. The seller was able to work with us to get our order turned around quickly, and every second of the wait was worth it. The inside and outside fit flawlessly, and both look great individually or together. They're warm, which is great in a cold convention hotel environment, but even in crowded places I never overheated (I also run cold). Everyone I met stopped me to look and exclaim over the details -- the armor attach points, the stitching, the patterning of the padding. I may wear this every year to this convention forever!

Fits so well, and is very comfortable. Solid product and worth the cost.

The quality of this item is absolutely beautiful. the fit of the vest is great and though I wish there was a little more room in the shoulders of the sleeves, it also fits well

I bought this gambeson to wear under chain mail and on it's own. I had been looking for a somewhat flattering gambeson for women for several years and had not found one I wanted to purchase. The "Dark Star" gambeson exceeded my expectations! It is comfortable, protective, flattering, and easy to clean. I am glad I waited so long to buy a gambeson so that I could buy this one. Armstreet customer service was extremely helpful in helping me determine which size to buy. I highly recommend emailing them your measurements if you are unsure. I would have bought a size too big without their advice.

If this is a general question we may post it on the page to help other customers, otherwise we will just answer you by email

What is the newton rating of this gambeson?

ArmStreet Team

Hello Emily, we do not Newton test our gambeson as we are working on the new line of gambesons for HEMA with puncture resistant fabric layer. However, we know that our gambesons pass SCA puncture test and we have a darkwood armoury testing device so we can test this gambeson for you. Just note that this is not an official FIE test required for HEMA, unfortunately.

the size i was looking to order is out of stock (4) when will it become available to order again?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Phoebe, we often re-stock our products so it should be available soon. However, to confirm the size for you, could you please send us your bust and waist circumference?

Which of the female gambesons would you say is lightest (in terms of breathability, not feeling hot and stuffy after fighting, etc)? It seems like cotton would be the least warm, followed by linen, canvas and then wool, would this assumption be correct? Also, what height are these meant for? I'm quite tall (over 6 feet), so just wondering if I might need a custom fit for one of these. Thank you!

ArmStreet Team

Hi Natalie, yes cotton and linen gambesons are the lightest, but the Dark Star gambeson can be made in fixed sizes only, unfortunately. Our fixed size products fit the full height of 5' 6"
