Padded gambesons were traditionally worn during the medieval ages. Warriors favored them primarily as a source of padding, worn under their armor to ensure that the steel or leather plates did not rub and chafe uncomfortably during hours of movement and use. Dark Knight Armourys wide selection of padded gambesons performs the exact same function as their historical counterparts. These padded gambesons can be worn with steel or leather armor. It helps to reduce the pinching and chaffing of both types of armor. They are also great looking, and many of the gambesons can be worn alone as padded armor or quilted armor. They come in a variety of styles and colors, from plain, undecorated gambesons that are fit for any knight, warrior, or soldier, to decorated yet functional gambesons that are fit for kings and outlaws. We have gambesons that have no sleeves, short sleeves, detachable sleeves and full sleeves, ensuring that no matter what type of gambeson you need, Dark Knight Armoury has it available. If you need padding for your armor or if you prefer to wear padded armor, then pick up one of our padded gambesons. You will fit snugly into your steel or leather armor and you will look rather authentic, not to mention pretty cool to boot.
