Description

Eastern long gambeson is a typical example of eastern tribes wearing starting from the II century a.d. It preserved its original appearance today in some national costumes (of the same length or shorter, with long or short sleeves) of such eastern countries as Mongolia, Kazakhstan, etc.

This gambeson was not a specialized type of armour. There was usual stuffed vest, made of wool, linen or cotton, and it was worn by nomad tribes, who were irrupted the near tribes. People, for whom war was a life-style, were upgrading such gambeson with metal or leather plates. These plates provided good protection during the battle.

You can see such type stuffed armour in the picture of Genghis Khan’ warriors, Chinese imperial soldiers and commanders.

Made-to-measure gambeson armour 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 coat 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. Black leather straps;
  6. Straight bottom edge;
  7. 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.

Such materials as wool, leather, cotton and linen of black, red, green and blue colors were the most popular among Eastern warriors. We offer only high-quality natural fabrics for your medieval gambeson. 

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

If you plan to use eastern arm defense or spaulders over your gambeson jacket, 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 [email protected]

Main photo shows gambeson with following options:

  • 3 layers of padding;
  • Dark-blue cotton for outer and inner shell;
  • Standard sleeves’ attaching (closed armpit);

    A well-made quality product, even when ordered in 5 layers the mobility is excellent and the fit great. At such thickness the gambeson is noticeably heavy to use, but using a belt makes the weight still distribute nicely. Due to this model overlapping, 10 layers (about 5 cm of padding) in front is plenty of protection. The long, flaring hem is rather stiff in 5 layers (especially at first), which makes it look a bit goofy but protects thighs very well on its own even when leg is bent enough to actually be in contact with the hem.

    Good workmanship and nice materials, though it is a bit heavier than I expected (3 layers and leather cover).

    I heard nothing but only good reviews about Steel Mastery from my friends. However, I've never ordered custom-produced products on-line, as I doubted it may be manufactured well without personal attendance (my body has some "peculiar" features, hehe). Finally, I ordered this Eastern gambeson (two-layered, black linen), provided measures and approximately in a month, I got my gambeson. What can I say - these guys have an eye for custom manufacturing! Firm stitching, nice fabrics, and what is the most important - gambeson fits me so good, not even like a glove, but like a skin, lol)) So, 5 of 5 stars and highly recommended!

    I ordered this for a number of reasons (style, color options and more protective than my other gambeson) and am very satisfied with the result. I can tell I'mma get a lot of use out of this in my HEMA group

    I do all my online medieval shopping with Steel-mastery and I'm never disappointed. They are the best. Quality and service is the best. Return process is really easy and simple. I ordered the wrong style gambeson, so I just paid for shipping and additional cost for some options that I needed. Thank you guys, for your understanding and patience.
