European gambeson is one of the most popular padded armor of X-XII centuries.

    Great gambeson! My one complaint is that the cuffs of the sleeves were a bit too tight but that was easily fixed and was probably my fault for not measuring my wrists correctly.

  • Juho

    The gambeson I got looks to be of finest quality. I can't wait to use it in action! It feels great when wearing it. My only "complain" is about the long production process (almost 13 weeks) but I can partly blame myself about that because I made my order in the market season.

  • Cristoff Moor

    Hello! I received the gambeson today. It is in perfect conditions and the measures are ok. Thank you!
