Gambeson is a base equipment you’ll need to get into a historical medieval battle. Armor begins from padding. It serves as a shock-absorber between your body and steel armor. While choosing a gambeson take into account that it should not be too thick or bulky. Otherwise, wearing the steel armos you run risks overheating during intense fights in the hot season. Our Gambesons are made with 2 layers of natural sheet wadding with thickness around 1cm. Optionally you can choose it to be made with one layer. In this case the overall thickness of quilted fabric is 0.5cm. Padding is made in cold green color and can be completed with the trim of the black, red or yellow color.
Gambeson equipped with three fastenings: leather straps with steel buckles. By your choice it can be: base steel buckles, handmade steel or brass buckles, handmade brass buckles with etching (as seen on the photos).
You can complete Gambeson Green with Quilted stockings of the same color or the contrast one.
New option added! Gambeson can be equipped with 3 pairs of sewn leather arming points for the steel shoulder and arm armor connection. One pair of arming points will be attached on the shoulders. Two pairs will be sewn to the sleeve above and under the elbow. Please note: the sewn arming points may not fit the holes of your steel arm harness. In this case you can easily unsew them and change the position according to your wish.
