Ordinary gambeson (gambison, gambaison) - popular type of medieval padded underarmor.

This model was widespread in the XI-XV centuries. As common soldiers, so noble warriors were wearing such quilted jerkins.

Ordinary gambeson is suitable for usage for both, men and women. We make padded gambesons by historical patterns and basing on the ancient pictures of this padded underarmor.

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

Additional options allow you creating of unique model of padded gambeson coat, as gambeson armour points out social status of owner. Rich knights were wearing velvet, wool, leather or silk gambeson with cast bronze buckles or metal buttons. At the same time, foot soldiers and infantrymen were using cotton or linen gambesons with simple leather straps.

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 for light gambeson jacket is enough.

We offer great choice of fastenings and festoons for decoration of your aketon armor. If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured gambeson, please inform us by e-mail, what colours you prefer and its exact disposition. Black, blue, red and green colors are most popular for gambison. 

Gambeson materials may vary as well: it is possible to order gambeson of leather with cotton or linen lining, for example.

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]

Nothing bad to say about mine, fit like a glove, easy to move in. And as an added bonus, makes me look like i've been doing upper body at the gym!

This is made with a quality you can really appreciate at first glance! A perfectly sturdy and beautiful gambeson accurately fitted to your measurements for a really affordable price. Service is excellent too!
Daniel Joly
Were very accommodating with my requests and helping guide a new customer through the process. End product was great and I am very happy! Will be ordering something in the future for sure!
Wonderful quality! The padding is just right and it remains quite flexible. The cast buckles are sturdy and the arming points are in the right place for what I need. Gambeson's I've ordered from other places do not even come close to the performance of this piece.
Very good quality, perfect fit, great customer service. I recommend !
The gambeson I received was top notch. It fits perfectly, the arming points are exactly where I want them, and overall it just feels and looks good. If you’re looking for a gambeson, here’s the place for it!
Very top quality work and good service. The crafters followed every measurement and specification exactly as requested, and it definitely shows in how well the gambeson fits. Would recommend.
It fit me very well, very good mobility. Excellent quality, I recommend.
Perfect fit and craftsmanship, got this one in green and the color was perfect. More than satisfied!
A masterpiece! Very kind service, excellent quality of material and work and it fits perfect. Thanks a lot!

Good job, nice product, a bit long to wait , but nice when arrived
My first Gambeson, quality at the top, more than pleasant service and measures at the top I would not fail to recommend steelmastery to my medievist friends who do not know him yet
Dino elsberg
Super accomodating and helpful, quick responsen from the staff and great quality intens
My second gambeson from SM (the perivous one I ordered about four years ago and it's still serve me well). As usully, perfect craftmanship and customer service.
Satisfied with this gambeson. Way more comfortable and light than I expected. Despite of three layers of padding it does not sweat out too much. Fastenings are sewn firmly and cast bronze buckles are really beautiful (honestly, I thought there'll be kind of cheap "golden"-colored clasps, but no). Well done, guys, conrats! Will buy more from here!
The quality of this gambeson is very good. The adjustement made to fit with my measurements are perfect. I 'm completely satisfied by this product. The customer follow up was excellent. I recommend
An excellent item! Three layers of linen keep me snug and warm, and though it felt a little tight at first, I quickly got used to wearing it!
I use my gambeson for sword fighting. It is resistant, protects well and fits me perfectly. During the whole procedure, I had an excellent follow-up and I received my order on time. What more ? I am very satisfied of what i ordered :)
I have this gambeson in linen with 3 layers of padding in the torso and 2 layers in the arms. With holes in the armpits this gambeson gives good maneuverability, and my movements do not feel restricted while using a sword. The overlap in the front of the gambeson seems sufficient enough to stop a sword thrust from slipping in. The gambeson also does a good job at keeping me warm, even in snowy environments.
I am very happy with this gambeson. The choices of material are nice and it fits nicely.
