Padded gambeson of blue or green colors are the most popular, but in options you may choose wine-red, brown or other colors.

Quantity of padding layer depends on the main armour. If you plan to wear medieval gambeson vest 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 for your light gambeson.

Various color are available for order. If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured gambeson jacket, 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 aketon armor, 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]

Hello everyone, I just got my own custom made one in the mail this morning and I gotta say I'm impressed! This gambeson is well tailored, stitched, and just beautiful to look at. Stell mastery has given great customer service too! They kept in touch with me and even sent some work in progress photos to see how things looked. For anyone on the fence about getting one of these I'd full heartedly say go for it! You wont be disappointed in this product I assure you. -Ryan
