description

Gambeson (or gambison) of the VI-XIII century is classified as Early medieval gambeson. It is also known as Viking gambeson.

As this short sleeved gambeson was not providing complete protection of the arms, such padded armor was more popular among archers, crossbowmen and warriors who did not take participation in close fights.

You give us your specific measures and wishes - we make you a completely custom gambeson that will bring you joy and comfort for a long time! 

Made-to-measure medieval 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 jacket 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

This gambeson coat might be used together with short sleeved chainmail, and in this case quilted gambeson should have 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 light gambeson will not only ,ake wearing of medieval armor more comfotable, but also provide with additional body protection.

There are a lot of fastenings and festoons for decoration of your aketon armor. To point out high social status of owner, we offer you such materials as leather, wool or velvet. Fine cast buckles or buttons will be perfect for fastening. We may make figured leather straps for fastening as well.

If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured gambeson armour, 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 [email protected]
