Description

Long gambeson of the XI-XV centuries was worn preferably by mounted knight.

Though, infantrymen and foot soldiers were using such model as well. Completed with brigand or metal armor, such gambison provided with perfect protection even in close fight.

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 long 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. XS-size;
  4. Straight bottom edge;
  5. Black leather straps for fastening.

Outer material of gambeson armor always showed social status and financial health of owner. So, poor soldiers were wearing linen or cotton gambeson. Rich and noble knight could afford silk, wool or leather gambeson. Various types of fastening were used as well: leather belts with cast buckles, metal buttons, straps with steel or brass points. Bottom edge could be decorated with festoons.

Depending on the main armor that you plan to use over quilted gambeson, we offer different quantity of layers of padding. If you’ll wear gambeson coat under the chainmail, so 5-6 layers will be required. If there will be full-plate armor or brigandine, so 2-3 layers of wadding is enough.

By choosing option “Laced sleeves”, you may make your gambeson armour sleeveless. Or, you just may simply order sleeveless or short-sleeved gambeson in our store: early medieval gambeson, sleeveless gambeson of the XII-XIII centuries.

If you plan to wear steel spaulders or plate arms over this padded gambeson, please add leather fastenings for steel arms.

Black, blue, uncoloured (natural) or green gambesons were the most popular that time. If you choose half-coloured or quarter-coloured padded gambeson, please inform us at [email protected], what colours you prefer and its exact disposition.

There are two layers of padding in sleeves by default. If you want to change it, please contact us.

Main photo shows long gambeson with following options:

  • 2 layer of padding;
  • uncoloured (natural/unbleached) linen for outer and inner shells;
  • L-size;
  • brown leather belts with cast brass buckles;
  • straight bottom edge.

    I'm vey happy with this gambeson. It's very well made, and everything about it fits perfectly. The customizable options really let you get exactly what you want, and customer service was very helpful. Shipping was also quite quick considering how far it had to go.

    Awesome service. I just got my second gambeson. First one was spoiled at customs or during transportation. Package was opened and closed again. On the front part there were some oily stains. Before shipping Steel mastery send me the photo, everything was fine. Since it was not their fault, I agreed to pay for the shipment in both directions, but the manager discussed the situation with the owner and we split the shipping price. A+ or AAA+++. You are the best.

    I own this Gambeson for a month now and for me it is well worth the prize. The made to measure fit is comfortable and doesn't restrict movement. The finish leaves nothing to find fault with, stitchings are firm and no loose threads up until now.
