For those who don't know, PBT has a UK web shop as well.
Do you have any idea about prices yet? The problem I find with most of the jackets in that regard is that many average people would have to sell a kidney to buy one.
I like the look of the throat protector particularly.
"massive jacket" you say? How massive do they go, i wonder?
(I require an embarrasingly large size... and of course, they assume just cos you have a 50" chest, you must have really long arms too)

when can I order a jacket?
how much changes did you make compared to the one I tried in Dijon?
Butt what happened to the zipper?? it's still at the back!
the jacket: best jacket atm on the market for HEMA... arms are now horizontally sewed on the torso part, so the jacket doesn't lift that much if you go into "vom Tag" or into similar positions, you have a folded AND partial sewed collar to avoid that your thrust is slipping under mask into your head. a 4 mm hard chest piece, back piece and rip chage piece. thick padded upper arms, thin padded forearms. I think this part is amazing

I have never found these to be much use personally, has anyone found them to be particularly useful? Is this PBT version any better than 4mm leather cut to the same shape?
