(1 customer review)



Gift Wrap?

Archers and swordsmen need padding when practicing for battle. The English Arming Gambeson helps protect these medieval soldiers from enemy blows. Made with a cotton blend, this lightly padded gambeson comes in four sizes and either black or brown. The thinly padded gambson has slits from the waist down on the front, back, and sides for greater mobility. The long-sleeved arms and lower half of the gambeson are quilted for better padding. Meanwhile, the top half of the gambeson has less padding. Wear this medieval gambeson to a LARP event, Renaissance faire, or fantasy convention.

Please note that the waist of the gambeson runs small.

    This gambeson fits very comfortably under my brigandine without adding lots of heat stress on my torso, which was a big problem with my other gambeson. The fit is snug and you need to pull the whole gambeson over your head since there is no opening either front or back. You may want to factor this in by ordering a size larger than normal.
