The last bastion of defense against the eradication of the human race, Master Chief has a shoot first and ask second kind of attitude against any alien who poses a threat to humanity. Backed by guns, armor and a cybernetic-enhanced body, nothing stops him from completing a mission.

Prior to purchasing this item, I spent a great deal of time researching this costume. This costume got great ratings and feedbacks from almost every website, and so I decided to get this Halo Supreme Edition suit by Rubies as a Christmas present for me. Now I wish I didn't. Lets start with the positive things about this suit...First, it's a decent replica of Halo Master Chief's suit. Second, I got it from Amazon for less than the suggested retail price. Third, free shipping from Amazon was awesome - fast and the box arrived in great condition ;)
Now, the bad news. First, this suit was made in China and it shows ;#. The ABS plastic is downright cheap and painful...alot of the edges are rough and have not been sanded down. The velcro used to attach the pieces are badly glued...glue marks are every where. On some of the gear items, the velcro could not hold together because plastic panels were rivoted badly. My leg and thigh pieces that are put together differently...inconsistent overlapping of panels, exposed seams, and poor rivoting. I'm not an expert on ABS armor manufacturing, but man, where's the quality control inspector? It's brutal. And yes, the quilted jump suit is hot - be warned - you need to have long torso and short leg to fit this jump suit. I'm 5'10", 44R chest, 33R pants, 180 lbs, and athletic built, and this jumpsuit was a little long for me.
I'm glad I bought this item early - got 10 more months until Halloween.Read more ›
As soon as I opened the box I was let down. The pieces are all made out of pretty thin plastic and a few of the Velcro straps were coming off just from trying to pull the pieces apart.
I didn't even open the helmet because I already planned on returning the suit, but the visor was visible and didn't look at all like the picture.
I'd say this costume might be worth about $150 at most.
After being so disappointed I did a little searching and found a site that has instructions for making a pretty sweet looking Master Chief costume for about $400 for all the materials. It sounds kind of time consuming, but I'm going to give it a shot.
Here is the website incase anyone is interested:
First opening the box the pieces that hold the lights on the side of the helmet were detached bouncing around in the box... one of the batteries (I'm surprised they even gave me batteries) was stuck inside the padding INSIDE the helmet. So I had to take the liner out to get it. The little box where the light sits is poorly made and I will have to epoxy the lights to the helmet and modify it so u can put the batteries from inside the helmet. If u move around too much quickly the lights can come off the helmet (don't need that happening when saving the universe!!) the visor... crap... total see through plastic... my suggestion is to pop it out... use a dremal tool and cut a gold mirror motorcycle visor for the design and then take another one and bond them together then install... (Double visor effect). Part of the plastic on the helmet was coming apart, so... bond that together. The actual size of your head has to be about the size of a watermelon in order to fit inside it; otherwise it is loose and rattles. Expect to put some foam or padding inside to make a snug fit.
Very big! I'm about 5'10, 180 athletic build... too long for me and too much material on the sides. If u want to take the time and have it tailored to fit you if you need it, then that is the way to go. I scrapped the idea and went with an under armor top, bottom, and balaclava to cover the neck. I would recommend dark sneakers or combat boots for the shoe covers.Read more ›
Shoe covers: Designed for Size 8 feet or smaller, the part that holds both parts together is made with nylon band [not elastic] so it doesn't even fit AT ALL (size 10.5)
Shin gaurds: Ok.
Thigh armor: Tendency to slide down, also the velcro strips were falling off the plastic.
Crotch/Ass armor: Actually not too bad.
Pouches x2: one of the clips glued onto these pieces fell off immediately, the other was already floating around in the bag.
Chest piece: Very detailed, not too bad.
Upper arm: has 2 metal hooks instead of velcro, need someone to help you put this piece on, also easy to fall off.
Lower arm: Decent.
Gloves: Probably an M, definitely tight if you wear L gloves.
Helmet: Build quality is ok but the appearance of the visor is terrible--its half completely opaque with the tiny oval shaped middle that's clear. Doesn't look at all like the picture for the item. Also, one of the lights didn't always work.
Overall: uncomfortable, really hot (probably would be comfortable in 40F weather), and ill-fitting, not worth $500. At this point, I might just go to a party with just the crappy helmet.

I ordered this after reading a mixed bag of reviews - ranging 5 star to 1 star. The MSRP on this is $1900 - definitely not worth that much money, whereas a lot of advertised prices... Read morePublished 3 months ago by William C.
