That Guy's Gorgets


  • Philipp Selman - 16 Apr 2014

    This is hands-down the very best gorget I've ever owned. I normally dread putting on a gorgetóI'm claustrophobic about having anything around my neckóbut That Guy's gorget is so comfortable, I don't even notice that I'm wearing it. The collar itself is covered in soft leather that offers the right amount of give, and the front and back are made of overlapping scales covered on both sides by malleable leather, so the move and conform to your body, but sill offer plenty of protection, even against extremely stiff shots. That fact that it looks spiffy is just an added bonus. The gorget buckles on both sides, offering a wide range of size adjustment, from very small to gargantuan. The only thing I wasn't as pleased as I could have been about are the nickel rivets, which do rust if you don't treat them, which is a hazard anyone who sweats as much as I do should be aware of. I've heard that's not as much of an issue with the brass-plated rivets though. Over all, I like my That Guy gorget so much I've recommended it to just about every fencer I've met since purchasing one.
