15th Century Gambeson - Open Armpit

This Gambeson is a replica of a 15th century garment but is representative of gambesons worn by archers over a wide time span. This medieval style has a scalloped hem, covered button-and-loop closures and semi-open armpits, providing mobility and ventilation without compromising protection. Crafted in heavy-duty padded canvas, it has excellent blow-absorbing properties.

Available in three colours: Natural, Black, or Green (our personal favourite).

Form and function
Looks ace (the 'Peter Pan gambeson' as one of our trainers called it!) and also a great way to get round the protection/being able to move dichotomy. With minimal wearing-in it has loosened to allow full movement while still stopping blades and bruises. Can also be worn as evening wear.
