Product Description

This 14th Century Medieval Type I Gambeson is made of high quality, handmade, authentic reproduction. This gambeson is a period correct style.The gambeson is made of eloquently high quality thick cotton and is durable on its own that will not tear under stress and provides padding under armor.
It has heavy duty construction which is padded with three layers of cotton batting, which in combination with the natural fibers of its outer shell and lining makes it exceptionally breathable.

The gambeson is fastened at the front with four period-style straps and brass buckles. True to surviving originals, the gambeson’s arms are hinged at the yoke of the shoulders, rather than fully sewn to the torso, so in effect the armpits are “open”. This allows for greater ventilation and means absolutely no “pull” upon the arm when swinging a weapon. It is a period correct model of a 14th century gambeson. The Renaissance has arrived.

Very flexible construction that allows you to move around freely without causing the armor to pull up. Perfect for Collectors and Enthusiasts.

    This is one of the best-made Gambesons I have owned. Sturdy construction.

  • Amazing Customer Service

    The customer service that I received when I called about this product was amazing. I purchased this product as a gift for my son who performs steel combat at RenFests around the U.S.and we were very impressed with the design - multiple sleeve lengths, back slit for mobility, good padding but not so much to interfere with his brigadine. The quality of the gambeson is also very good. The sewing is done well, the rivets all have re-enforced backings, and the front buckles are easy to use. Our group will purchase from SwordArmory again!
