Shapur Gambeson

(3 customer reviews)



While the Shapur Gambeson goes well with a variety of historical looks, its design bares an Eastern Asian influence. An outer layer of cotton canvas combined with wool-felt padding offers extra protection on the LARP battlefield. The oriental cut of the gambeson is emphasized by its mandarin collar and overlapping closure. Three sets of leather strings attached to round felt accents close the front, while cotton lacing adjusts the fit at the waist. The canvas layer enhances the durability, while the wool felt give it a slimmer, more comfortable fit when worn under plate armour.

    Great Gambeson, with a unique look. Quality material, lined, comfortable. More padding where you need it (body), less where you dont
    (lower arms).

    Great piece; but, I really don’t want to cover with chainmail or plate because it looks so darn good!
