I have seen some of their arms and have thought they looks sturdy and well made. I think they also seem fairly well weight wise as well. The workmanship was nice from what I remember but that was close to a year ago. Their gallery was really nice though.

I like the look of their armour but the helmets and the gauntlets are a little on the lite side as far as thickness. 1.2mm for a helmet, even a historic one is fairly thin for a skull and these pieces are completely under of that thickness. True some bits get that thin but I have yet to see a armet or sallet with a front skull below 1.8mm or so. Gauntlets typically ahve a wide range of thicknesses. Finger lames do tend to be around 1mm to 1.2mm. Yet the rest of the item, metacarpal and carpal plates adn the cuff vary typically more thick than the finger scales, perhaps because the overlap afforded by the finger scales or something. In the Walace collection one of the gothic gaunltets they have weights 1/3 more for example. If I were using this for reenactment sin combat I would be fine with the helmet and gauntlets but If I were to be fighting a guy with a weapon I would want at least 1.5mm-1.6mm minimum, preferably 2mm plus skull and 1.2m gauntlets minumum. I think I have heard they will make thicker items if asked. The rest of the armour is thick enough I think to feel safe in most situations on the combat reenacter field.

Ok, I'm really dumb here I'm sure of it, but I don't see that name in the reviews section. This is obviously a different company from the American Arms & Armor right?

Here is a link to our review.

In the links section, they are called "Arms+Armor Manufacture", as this is their name.
