Pleasantly surprisedReview by R13

Wasn't sure about a small or medium so went with medium and is the perfect fit.! Is a little shorter than I thought but does not ride up went arms are at full extension and I wear a skirt for hip protection anyway. Tempted to send back and order a brown one but I'm sure sweat and the English summer will fade it right enough.
The fabric that covers the zip could be wider and have velcro to protect the zip more but sure it will be fine. The collar works great with a gorget and really helps provide solid throat protection. The jacket is reasonably well padded where it needs to be and I am looking forward to a happy relationship with it .
If you are reading this you probably know about the AP jacket so no need to go into fine detail, you won't be disappointed. Thank you HEMA shop for great communication and swift delivery. (Posted on 20/02/2018)

The whole part is really good,exepte the shoulder part,you should add an inmore protection on it (home made it's ok) .
So vertical hit to the soulders are really bad.

Same with the forearm if you try to block with (you're not supposed to do this but you know... )

It fit like it writed on the size guide.
I took a XL,but a L should be good for me (188cm,95kg) .
