Description

Early medieval gambeson of the VI-XIII centuries is popular model of padded armor that can be seen in the Byzantine annals and church fresco.

Short sleeved gambeson was peculiar to footmen, archers and crossbowmen.

Taking into consideration the short sleeves, this medieval gambeson had been worn by people who did not take participation in close fights, or did not have enough money for totally closed gambeson armor.

Made-to-measure gambeson may be sewn by two ways:

  • machine manufacturing. Tailors will make padded armor by your parameters, using sewing machine.
  • hand sewing. Custom gambeson will be completely sewn by hands of our tailors. Such type of manufacture is historical one and is offered for additional costs.

You can use this gambeson for:

  • SCA
  • HEMA
  • Larp
  • Stage performances
  • Medieval festivals
  • Reenactment events

Base price includes following options:

  1. 1-2 layers of padding (natural sheet wadding 50% cotton, 50% wool);
  2. Natural (uncoloured) cotton for outer and inner shell;
  3. Standard sleeves’ attaching (closed armpit);
  4. XS-size;
  5. Straight bottom edge;
  6. No fastenings for steel arms.

You may use this gambeson armor together with chainmail. In this case we recommend to order quilted gambeson with 4-6 layers of padding. If you plan to wear it under brigandine or plate armour, so 2-3 layers of padding will be enough.

This light gambeson with diamond-shaped stitching can be made of linen, wool, cotton or leather. Various color are available for order.

If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured gambeson, please inform us by e-mail, what colours you prefer and its exact disposition.

If you plan to use spaulders over your padded gambeson, we recommend you to order leather fastenings for steel arms.

There are two layers of padding in sleeves by default. If you want to change it, please contact us sales@steel-mastery.com

  • 2 layers of padding;
  • red cotton for outer and inner shell;
  • sleeves' attaching with hole under armpit;
  • M-size;
  • straight bottom edge;
  • no fastenings for steel arms.
