Selling my brand new never worn set of armor that I bought from Andrey Galevskiy. They are all nice and strong tempered steel except for the helmet which is 2.5mm Mild steel. The coat of plates is 1mm plates and the arms and legs are 1.5 mm on the elbows and knees and about 1mm everywhere else. Both the elbows and knees are raised and not dished. The legs have full splints inside and out and make a nice flexible shell. The arm canons are slot riveted so they have mobility and the articulation is great. The arm canon forearms are also anatomical tulip shaped instead of the basic cylinder shape. The arms and shoulders fit perfectly over each other. All pieces have a nice mirror polish. The helmet is made snug for a 21.5 inch head but has almost 30mm or so of padding inside so if you replace it the helmet can fit a larger head, comes fully strapped with leather visor closure and chin strap and with flat dome riveted and padded aventail. I'm selling due to the fact I've lost quite a bit of weight and I'm going in a little bit different of a direction with my kit now. Was made when I was about 185 lbs and I'm 5'8 and the pieces fit over my padded gambeson and hose. Prices do not include shipping.
