Sometimes, when out questing, all that heavy steel plating can be a bit cumbersome and uncomfortable. In times like these, the best place to be is within the safe padding of an article of clothing like the Diana Gambeson. This cotton overcoat has been padded with wool felt, making it both warm and thick enough to serve as a fair piece of protective wear.

Additionally, the cuffs of the gambesons sleeves can be closed with lacing or left open, depending on the wearers preference.

    This is a hefty article. It’s easier to deal with when you remember it’s padded armor. Cumbersome (as one would expect padded armor to be). For petite people like me, the proportions are a little off. I will probably end up modifying this to fit better (though I’m not looking forward to trying to run it through my sewing machine or doing it by hand). It would probably do for a winter coat – don’t wear it in warm weather if you can help it! I don’t expect the leather ties to last too long. Buckles and straps would be better.

    In stark contrast to the prior review, and as a fencer, this happens to be a piece of armor that I love. Fits me well and it fulfills its purpose entirely. It’s not “hefty” and is what you’d expect the weight to be for literal armor(~5lbs). I’d never use this specifically as a winter coat as that would be doing a disservice to whomever made the piece and secondly it isn’t the purpose of the garment. The freedom of movement is wonderful and after breaking it in should feel like a second skin. The leather ties can be removed and replaced with a different cord if you so chose on your own time.
    Love it!
