Gustav Gambeson

(2 customer reviews)


SKU: MY100136 Categories: ,

Wearing armour in battle can lead to uncomfortable rubbing and pinching. Increase the comfort of your re-enactment gear by adding the Gustav Gambeson, which provides a layer of sturdy padding between you and your armour. The short-sleeved gambeson features linear back-stitching that keeps the padding in place as you move, and four buckled straps securely fasten the front of the padded jacket. Available in black, brown, or blue color options, the medieval gambeson is the perfect arming wear to add underneath chainmail or a steel breastplate. When planning your next LARP or SCA look, make sure to bring home the appropriate arming wear to go with it!

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

    Excellent piece. The Small fits my 5’7″ 170lb athletic build like a charm. I can definitely see myself adding arming points to this piece too.

    Very prompt! Ordered on Sunday, arrived Tuesday.
    Overall very happy. I ordered the Brown/Large and it fits my 6’1, 220lb frame with 43 inch chest well. Very comfortable and good range of motion for the arms. The brown has a slight tint of burgundy to it, not in the least upset! Looks really good to be honest. Definitely recommend for the price!
