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.
