SKU: MY100476 Categories: ,

The Tudor Canvas Armour Jerkin provides an extra layer of protection during LARP battle. Its slim design allows more freedom of movement when worn underneath steel armour, thereby limiting pressure marks and increasing defense. An outer layer of canvas enhances its durability, while wool felt padding gives it a slimmer, more comfortable fit. This late medieval gambeson follows a traditional design with long-sleeves and a mandarin collar. In place of padding, a double layer of thick canvas forms the arms. Lacing with fixed tips provides closure in the front. Holes line the shoulders and the waist for easy attachment of armour.

  1. greg g,

    It is very heavy and warm. Great for winter but we found that the brass spear like buttons have hard edges and over time cut themselves off of the draw strings. Also they can get tangled in chainmail if you aren’t careful.

    The jerkin has heavy padding in the chest and sleeves so it will be warm to wear under armor
