An excellent option for protecting yourself in battle, the Arthur Padded Gambeson appears in a sleeveless vest design. The medieval gambeson can be worn under many kinds of re-enactment armour to help prevent rubbing and pinching. The tall collar increases comfort around the neck, as well. The armour padding is stitched in a diamond pattern that allows movability and keeps the padding in place. The front of the padded gambeson is fastened with four buckled straps. Metal eyelets run along the edges of the arm holes and bottom hem of the sleeveless gambeson, allowing the addition of sleeves or tassets (sold separately) when extra protection is desired. This arming wear comes in black or brown color options.

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

    I purchased The Arthur Gambeson in an XXXL size and I was very impressed with it out of the box! I have yet to test it in the field (I fight in SCA) so I will have a follow up in a month or so. I can say that it is of quality construction, appears to be durable and is a lot thicker in material than it appears to be. I recommend this product!

  2. Emil C.

    I got the black in large and it was absolutely wonderful. The fact you can order the sleeves separate is an incredible thing because I have a larger torso to arm size ratio.

    The gambeson was very comfortable and I cannot wait to wear it under my armor during a festival!

  3. Max B.

    Very pleased with this Gambeson, it fits well, and looks great, my only minor complaint that I have, is that I wish there was another leather strap at the top of the collar, or perhaps a couple of lace rivets so that we could lace the collar closed, the collar is fairly tall and would offer ample neck protection if it could be held closed, but as is, it feels like it’s just missing that little bit, otherwise, great quality item and would buy again.

    Thicker than I though but more comfortable than a one piece….looks and feels solid

    Great feel, excellent fit. True to size so it’s snug. Thick enough to provide good protection without being too bulky to wear under steel armors. Fittings are sturdy.

    Got for a friend. Big on me so it should fit him good. I know my size was a little small on him. Came with leather cord to attach sleeves and tassets. Definitely much happier with the sleeves now that they’re matched up with the proper gambeson and I’m not dumb about it.

    Nice thick padding, fits great. I was a bit worried of the large size being a little small, however it was perfect sized. Its short like a normal shirt which is exactly how I wanted it, plus ‘cut off’ at the shoulder which looks great with a tunic underneath it. Comes with the excess strings for when you buy the arms to the gambeson to tie them on.
