4 of 5 Good, but obvious improvements December 1, 2020
Reviewer: Matthew from Virginia  
The sleeves are a bit long for a size small, and it still rides up a little bit when raising arms despite the design.
Good jacket otherwise.

Reviewer: abdelrahman mohamed from houston, TX United States  
The jacket is amazing. It has great mobility, and provides plenty of protection for when I spar or train. Excellent job. Keep up the great work on your products!

Great fit and fast service. Measuring/fit dimensions are spot-on. Thought I would be a large, but measured a medium, and glad I went with it.

4 of 5 Well fitted and near perfect October 31, 2020
Reviewer: MCCLEARY SEARLES from Sugar Creek, MO United States  
The jacket is comfortable. Poofy of course, but only where you want it. I can easily move to the higher hangen with only an inch or two of lift on the bottom of the jacket. My only complaint is that the stitching around the cuff of the wrist has become completely cut and loose after only four hours of use. I don't suspect this will have a negative impact on me long term, but I was surprised to see it become so visibly damaged after such little use. The gloves I use are Sparring Gloves, so it's just styrogum. It's not like I'm running sandpaper or edges over them.
Beyond that, it's a good fit, good protection, and it makes longswords hurt less.
