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.

Fantastic as always. Great quality and comfortable to wear. Can't wait to get my lamellar out of the loft and try it all on together.

I love it! I took 4 layers so I got 8 protective layers in the front so I'll be a tank but if I fall on my back I'll become a turtle. I'll use my gambeson in HMBA so you should be alright with just 3 layers in the padding. Lovely work! I'm very happy with the product!
Listen to the good reviews here folks, this thing is of mad calibre, the team were happy to listen to all my little requests (pockets, double fittings, custom colours), and damn it has turned out nice. Go for it folks, they are amazing, high quality and best service, both team and materials

This Gambeson is authentic and practical. The Gambeson is made with quality materials--not hot and muggy poly, frail fabrics, or way too soft. I have used it in various sparrings involving heavy sparring weapons and the Gambeson prevented injuries. It is also surprisingly not too hot. It is hot of course, but given how thick this is, it is amazing that I don't overheat in generally cool weather in 15~20 Celsius degree. Which in turn, makes this a good armor even as standalone. The Gambeson is authentic. it is notable that the wraparound part goes right side up. Which is makes it even more authentic for a Korean person such as me. The only complaint I have is that the extra layer of sleeves made it a little too tight on my arms. I hope that next time, when a customer orders extra layers in the sleeves, the Steel Mastery team should add an extra few centimeters to the arm measurement of the customer.

A well-made quality product, even when ordered in 5 layers the mobility is excellent and the fit great. At such thickness the gambeson is noticeably heavy to use, but using a belt makes the weight still distribute nicely. Due to this model overlapping, 10 layers (about 5 cm of padding) in front is plenty of protection. The long, flaring hem is rather stiff in 5 layers (especially at first), which makes it look a bit goofy but protects thighs very well on its own even when leg is bent enough to actually be in contact with the hem.
Good workmanship and nice materials, though it is a bit heavier than I expected (3 layers and leather cover).
I heard nothing but only good reviews about Steel Mastery from my friends. However, I've never ordered custom-produced products on-line, as I doubted it may be manufactured well without personal attendance (my body has some "peculiar" features, hehe). Finally, I ordered this Eastern gambeson (two-layered, black linen), provided measures and approximately in a month, I got my gambeson. What can I say - these guys have an eye for custom manufacturing! Firm stitching, nice fabrics, and what is the most important - gambeson fits me so good, not even like a glove, but like a skin, lol)) So, 5 of 5 stars and highly recommended!
I ordered this for a number of reasons (style, color options and more protective than my other gambeson) and am very satisfied with the result. I can tell I'mma get a lot of use out of this in my HEMA group

I do all my online medieval shopping with Steel-mastery and I'm never disappointed. They are the best. Quality and service is the best. Return process is really easy and simple. I ordered the wrong style gambeson, so I just paid for shipping and additional cost for some options that I needed. Thank you guys, for your understanding and patience.
Tested in combat and really confortable. Made to measure and fast delivery. Very well attended also. I'll definitely buy from Steel Mastery again!!
I received my gambeson and I am very happy. It is really comfortable and beautiful.
