"I bought this kit along with the harry potter robe for my son for Halloween, which he begged for. We waited a few weeks to order the costume so we could get this kit as it was not in stock. After recieving it and my son trying it on ONCE...the elastic straps that hold the pads on broke. There are two elastic straps on each of the pads all of which broke with the exception of one. Luckily I had enough time to sew them all down to make them secure...these are very poorly sewn on so just beware if you do purchase them you will have to secure them on yourself...I would not recommend this product just make your own or go without, not worth it. Check out the review for harry potter robe, we also had problems with that too."
