Description

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]

    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.

  • (5)

    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!

    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.
