Description

Gambeson (or gambison) of crossbowman of the XII-XIII centuries has tight fit.

It was typical as for dismounted soldiers, so for mounted knights.

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 armor 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 strap;
  6. Straight bottom edge;
  7. No fastenings for steel arms.

Gambeson has cuts from the front and back on the bottom hem that provide with good mobitily during the fighting.

There is leather lacing on the collar for fastening.

Poor soldiers mostly wore cotton and linen gambesons. Rich noble warriors preferred silk, velvet, wool or leather gambesons. The most popular colors of padded gambesons among all the knights were yellow, red, black, green and blue.

Quantity of padding layer depends on the main armour. If you plan to wear gambeson 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.

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 plate arms or spaulders over your 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
