The ideal armour padding for your next re-enactment battle, the Arthur Long Gambeson extends from neck to knee. The top-stitched gambeson vest can be worn under many kinds of armour to help prevent rubbing and pinching. The tall collar increases comfort around the neck, as well. The long padded vest is stitched in a diamond pattern that allows movability and keeps the padding in place. The front of the medieval gambeson is fastened with four buckled straps. Metal eyelets run along the edges of the arm holes on the sleeveless gambeson, allowing the addition of sleeves (sold separately) if desired. This arming wear comes in black or brown color options.

Please note that colors may vary slightly from what is pictured.

    I really love the Arthur Long Gambeson! It is made by Mytholon and fits well. For reference, I’m a 5’3″ gal and curvy–the Medium fits me great. As far as quality–I still feel blows from Calimacil weapons, but they don’t sting. This Gambeson is great larping armor. Haven’t tried it with plate on top, yet, but I will in the future. My only complaints about the gambeson are that the color (I got black) will rub off on your clothes. So wear dark colors or just think of it as “immersion”. Also, the buckles are a heavy grade plastic and not metal. I’m worried they may break if used too roughly, but they have not yet and I’ve had the gambeson for a few months now. Overall–great purchase and would highly recommend!

    when choosing the size be VERY careful on what you choose. Other wise this is incredible, fits well with my Elias short breast-plate and protects well enough against blows.

    I originally ordered the wrong size but exchanging for the correct size was so easy. They have the best customer service and for that I will be a long time customer. The gambeson itself is awesome! The collar is a bit high for me, but nothing that I can’t fix. I got it for my own witcher cosplay and I’m so excited to wear it to ren fest this year!! I feel like I could take a few sword hits in this, its great.

    I use this for SCA fencing (with a longsword) It’s well padded and would make wearing mail or plate a breeze. But it passes the droptest by itself. The small fits me perfectly, I’m skinny and 5’6 and my chest size is a little smaller than what it says it fits. Definitely measure yourself.

    This is a great item. I use it with both my chain mail and my leather lorica. My buddy ordered one for his leather samurai armor and love it to. Perfect for the padding needed to absorb the blows from a two handed long sword. I’m hoping to order a larger size than a dsl for my brother if they have anyway of getting one

    As a somewhat slender, broad shouldered, shorter guy, I can be a tough fit. ~5’7″ and 150lbs. I found the Medium fit me great and after a long, long day at the ren faire I had zero comfort issues. The length is great, the product looks FANTASTIC on. The straps and buckles are solid. Honestly for the price I am ecstatic.
