About Padded armor

Padded armor or stitch after stich

History of padded armor begins long before Current Era. In fact, there is one of the earliest protecting outfit, after leather and twig, as it was much easier to sew few layers of fabric or leather, than hammer out, cast, braid or rivet metal.

Even in Europe, padded armor as we know it, was in use since at least the X century, though there are factors to suggest that it existed even earlier.

To the point, all padded armor may be divided into three types:

- Independent padded cloth armor, from the earliest representatives to the medieval models and modern protecting cuirasses for fencing sport and kendo.

- Padded under armor, which protects as against enemy, so against own armor, defending from the injuries, which plate armor, mail or brigandine protection could deliver to the sensitive human skin.

- Padded upper armor, which protect as a warrior, so his main armor.

Gambesons and aketons are the most prominent and popular representatives of the padded body armor, which may take place in all three mentioned types. They started their journey in the X-XI centuries and finished in the XIV century.  Read more about them in description of category “Gambesons”, however there are some models before and after them, which deserve attention.

Let’s start from linothorax – ancient Greek body armour, which had a look of multi-layered cuirass of linen fabric, reinforced with metal sheet around the waist. Historians suggest its usage starting the Mycenaean period (from the XVI to the XI century B.C.) and until the III century A.D.

It was widespread on the entire territory of the ancient world, and became a standard hoplites armor from the end of the VI century B.C.

Also, Etruscans used this padded armor, covering it with metal plates.

Later, Macedonians, Romans, Celts and other nations borrowed and remodeled such padded cuirasses.

***

In the IV B.C., Scythian warriors worn padded leather jackets and pants. You may see them on the gold Scythian adornments.

***

Historians cannot say for sure, whether Scandinavians worn padded armor in the VIII-X centuries. From the one side, probability of the fact that they were wearing mails on the bare body is almost equal to zero. From the other side, it is quite possible that they settled with a shirt and leather jacket, being worn under the mail.  Unfortunately, there are no artefacts, which may make clear the fact, if they were wearing padded armor.  Also, there are no text evidences; Scandinavian paintings and carvings do not allow to specify, what was worn under the chain mail.

But, there is a different story in the XI century. Thanks to Odo, Bishop of Bayeux, a half-brother of William the Conqueror, until the present day we may admire the Bayeux Tapestry, which had been made shortly after Norman Conquest. 

So, in more recent times, historians define outfit with triangles/diamonds as padded leather armor, whereby a separate metal plate is sewn inside each triangle/diamond.

Now, here is a kabadion – Byzantine padded body armor, which had being made of few layers of cotton fabric. There is a body protection of Persian horsemen, which was adapted by Byzantine army in the X century for their horse cavalry. Though some researchers suggest that infantrymen worn thigh-length kabadion of and cavalrymen worn this protection of under-knee-length. Sleeve length varied; long one usually had cuts for more comfortable weapon usage.

It is worth to mention that padded armor is not only body protection. Descriptions, paintings and statues show us many options of using it for protection of head, neck and legs.  

Here, you may see padded head and neck protection:

Here is padded leg armor – cuisses:

Though, panzerhose protected legs more often, than cuisses:

After rule of gambesons and aketons, pourpoint or arming doublet reigned Europe of the XIV-XVI centuries. Though, poor soldiers still could wear gambeson and jacks as an independent protection: thick padded jackets of 12-30 layers of linen or canvas. Padded upper armor was infrequently accessed protection; combining with plate armor, it was more decorative element with blazons.

However, together with plate armor, padded cloth armor runs into category “under armor” and protects as against foe, so against main armor, being a base for attaching of armor parts at the same time. Mail pieces were sewn on the uncovered places quite often. Such padded body armour could consist of padded layers of fabrics, so have wadding inside.

*It is worth to mention that although majority believes that medieval padded armor was always stuffed with additional materials (bristle or matted wool or linen), it is not so in reality. Actually, most part of the padded protection was made of fabric layers, padded together, without additional elements in between.

***

Pourpoint Charles de Blois (1360-1380 years) is the most popular padded body armor of this period.

Pourpoint of Charles de Blois, Musee des Tissus et des Arts Decoratif, Lyon, France

It has tight form-fitting cut, as non-military doublets of those years had; it is covered with expensive silk and has horizontal stitching. Although, other pieces of padded body armor of those years are not so popular, as this one, they had almost the same cut: difference were just in materials cost and quantity of buttons.

***

Padded upper armor of Edward the Black Prince is another interesting model of that period. It has as short length, so short sleeves. Upper layer is embroidered with blazons and padded vertically.

***

Whereas XIV century made the first step from huge thick gambesons to tight pourpoints, looking like stylish doublets, so the XV century became a golden age of arming doublet.

Considering medieval padded armor of the XV century, we should mention doublet of Malatesta. This typical representative of Italian padded cloth armor has vertical stitching and puffed sleeves, dated by 1472 year.

One more arming doublet with similar look:

***

Even padded upper armor of the mid-XV century looks more like fashion clothing, than battle one. For example, here is one of two identical padded upper armor, dated by 1440-1460 years:

Waffenrock, Holstentor Museum, Lübeck

***

Besides survived arming doublets, there are numerous paintings, which allow us to draw conclusions about variety of padded defense of those times:

Jan Van Eyck, Cucifixion,1440 year

Pisanello, 1450–1455 years

   

St. Florian, Österreich, Oberösterreich, Stiftssammlung, 1480-1490 years

***

The trend continued in the XVI century: padded under armor was identical to civil doublets and jackets, being fully functional elements of main armor at the same time.

However, not only knights worn all mentioned-above padded body armor. Infantrymen and archers were wearing jack – multilayered padded body armor, which was previously mentioned.

By contrast with rich and noble knights, who were contriving in their own padded armor and as hard as they can, demands to the jack of common soldiers are written in details in ordonnance and articles of investigational period. So, there are “jack of three cloths of waxed canvas with lining of ten simple canvas” are described in French ordonnance of Charles, Duke of Burgundy. French ordonnance of Louis XI, dated by 1470 year, describes jack in details: “We should say about jacks, that they have to be made of 30 or at least 25 layers of canvas or linen, probably with deerskin as outer layer. Those, which have 30 layers and outer layer of deerskin, will be better and softer clothing. For that purpose, it would be better to make them of four parts. Sleeves must be sewn to the body part well, excluding leather. Holes for fastening of steel parts on the sleeves must be big enough. Holes should be located near of collar, but on the collarbones. High-stand collar must be not too high from the back, leaving space for sallet’s tail. Jack must be buttoned or tied with lacing from the front. Jack must be comfortable and light and be worn over sleeveless pourpoint without collar, made of two-layered fabric. Chausses should be fastened to such pourpoint.”

Chronicler Dominic Mancini describes English infantry, called by Duke of Gloucester and Duke of Buckingham in London 1483 year: “In fact, common soldiers have more comfortable jack, thigh-length and stuffed with cotton wool or other soft fiber. They say, that the softer a jack is, the better they resist to swords and arrows blows. Besides, it is lighter in summertime and handier in wintertime.”

You may examine jack on the Memling’s paintings closer. Archers were wearing such model:

Here is an infantrymen:

And, few words about eastern padded armor, so differ from European protection, but so interesting too.

For example, gazakhand of Arabian writer and commander Usama ibn Munqidh, XII century. Armor consisted of five layers: linen lining, mail of small rings, padded cotton layer, “Frankish mail” of big rings and ornamented outer layer. Button fastened an armor.

    The arming doublet was very well made and my son (who it is for) was more than happy with it. Steel Masters service is very good and professional. The custom made size fits perfectly, is very comfortable to wear and easy to move around in. This isn't our first product from Steel Mastery and it will not be our last order from them as all their products have been well made and their service has always been good..

    I bought this gambeson with the intention of using it for HEMA. My first observation of it was that it is thick and flexible. I chose the thinnest option, and it hasn't affected my mobility in the slightest. I can get my arms to touch my ears, a feat nobody else in my club can achieve in their gear. It is very warm, and comfortable enough that I've worn it as a jacket when going for walks. I cannot stress enough how much I like this gambeson!

    The Doublet is beautiful. It fits perfectly, and even thought it is only 3 layers, it is sturdy and feels like a stand alone armor. I can not get over how comfortable it is. I have several “off the shelf” gambersons, but nothing comes close in quality or fit to this doublet. I don’t understand why I waited so long to get a respectable piece such as this.

    Overview: I ordered this gambeson for use in HEMA, specifically the works of Fiore dei Liberi. This is is the first tailored garment I own, and the difference between this and an off-the-shelf gambeson is incredible. I have full practical range of movement. I have worn several gambesons in the past, and all of them required me to fight them to move the way I wanted. With this gambeson, I simply MOVE, and the gambeson complies. It is an ally to my movements, not an enemy. Fit: As in the overview, the fit on this gambeson is excellent. I was worried my measurements would be wrong, or something wouldn't sit quite right, but Steel Mastery has provided an amazing garment based on my sub-par measurements. I can lift both hands above my head, reach my hand over my shoulder and into the small of my back, and do many of my normal stretches while wearing it. It fits snugly without being tight. The tailored waist keeps the fabric against my flanks, which helps to avoid bunching and discomfort. The linen fabric seems to breathe quite well, and while it keeps me warm, I did not feel as though I was overheating over the couple hours I wore it last week. More testing in the summer months at renaissance faires in California will see how that holds up. Protection: I bought this gambeson for use in HEMA sparring and the occasional tournament. I wear a WinterTree gorget under the gambeson to protect my collarbone and throat. The gambeson fits very nicely over the gorget, and keeps it flush to my body. While I would not karate block and incoming sword blow and expect the gambeson to protect my bones from being broken (it's not steel armor after all) it does what I feel a gambeson should do in terms of protection. It makes sure that errant or poorly executed cuts are nothing to worry about. I am confident this garment would protect me from minor alignment errors even against period-sharp swords, though I will not likely test that any time soon. I received a couple of thrusts to the torso and cuts to the arm during my testing, and they all felt solid but manageable. I cannot speak to more layers of padding, but if you are planning on wading in against opponents with little to know control and that "but hitting hard is how you HEMA" mindset, you may be helped by 3 or 4 layers of padding. For me, I'm comfortable with the protection offered. Style: Gods damn, I look good in this. This gambeson really stands out from the crowd. In an era where ren faires seem to be dominated by mass produced garments from the same three shops, and where tournament fighters wear what look to be space suits and call them "historical" this piece of kit REALLY brings together the medieval look. The blue is subtle. At first, I thought it was black! But sunlight shows its true color. Regal, but not ostentatious.

    I got this doublet in royal blue, 2 layers with linen exterior. With some nice festoons. It's an amazing doublet. The color is beautiful the linen makes it really soft and comfortable to wear. Their products are built to last and the craftsmanship is beautiful. Not only does it protect well in battles it also looks amazing on its own. I only use steel mastery padding under my armour. Amazing customer service and shipping was very fast and resonable. I recommend them to everyone looking for gambesons and the like.

    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!

    This is a great gambeson. It is very sturdy and well made, with a good historical feel. I chose maximum padding, 5 layers, and in addition to being very protective it wears surprisingly light and is very comfortable. If you go with this option I would recommend getting the open armpits however, because it gets very hot at this thickness. And finally, Steel-mastery's customer service is excellent. After ordering the gambeson I found that I had misunderstood the measuring procedure, and they went ahead and made a whole new gambeson without extra charge.

    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 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 ordered these chausses and they came as promised. They were of excellent construction. If you live in a warm climate, however, be sure to only get 1 layer of padding. I got two layers and it was quite thick. I had my seamstress friend cut out one layer of padding. I may have her open up some vents too, but that's only because of the California heat. If thick, comfy padding is what you're after, this is the right product for you.

    A bit long if you have a medium-frame like I do, however it certainly is resilient. I would advise nonetheless to use some braces to relieve back pains if you intend to use the belt to support plate legs.

    I ordered this set of gambeson and chausses. I must say that I'm very satisfied with the quality of product. My order was 3 layers, with all additional acessories, and all is as described. When I made my order, they contact me and send me informations for body measures. They even contact me back, to asure of one measure, that was a mistake, when I take a measure. Obviously they have some experiences. Production time was about 2 months , they shipped it with national post and took about one week to get it.

    Very happy about this product. It's a bit warm when you pu it on, but the cloth breathes nicely thanks to its holes below the armpits.

    A tad tight, as in a bit difficult to put on. However, once you're in, it fits like a glove. You should be careful with the strappings (especially the one below your foot, if you have long feet like me) when you put on the chausses in order to not break them, even if they seem pretty resilient.
