Our Medieval Gambeson is crafted in heavy-duty padded canvas.

    This fits great, made of solid material and honestly better quality than expected. I’m 5’9”, 190 pounds, medium build and the large size gambeson fits perfectly. Got this to wear under my chainmail I’ve been weaving. The Gambeson has some weight to it and is warm…might be rough to wear in summer, but that’s just the way it was back in the day! Great product.
