Arthur Padded Gambeson

(3 customer reviews)


SKU: MY100134 Categories: ,

An excellent option for protecting yourself in battle, the Arthur Padded Gambeson appears in a sleeveless vest design. The medieval gambeson can be worn under many kinds of re-enactment armour to help prevent rubbing and pinching. The tall collar increases comfort around the neck, as well. The armour padding is stitched in a diamond pattern that allows movability and keeps the padding in place. The front of the padded gambeson is fastened with four buckled straps. Metal eyelets run along the edges of the arm holes and bottom hem of the sleeveless gambeson, allowing the addition of sleeves or tassets (sold separately) when extra protection is desired. This arming wear comes a variety of color options.

Please note that colors may vary slightly from what is pictured.

    I have no issues with it and it looks great!

    Fits really well and takes hits like a pillow. I wish it breathed a little better but hey you get what you pay for and this is an excellent starter piece!

    A bit heavier than I’d like but excellent quality
