Quantity of padding layer depends on the main armour. If you plan to wear medieval gambeson vest under the hauberk, so 5-6 layers will be required. If there will be usual plate armour or brigandine, so 2-3 layers of natural wadding is enough for your light gambeson.

Various color are available for order. If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured gambeson jacket, please inform us by e-mail, what colours you prefer and its exact disposition.

If you plan to use plate arms or spaulders over your aketon armor, we recommend you to order leather fastenings for steel arms.
