This gambeson is a period correct style. The gambeson is made of eloquently high quality thick cotton which is black and is durable on its own that will not tear under stress or under armour. Its 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 gambesons 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. Very flexable construction that allows you to move around freely without causing the armor to pull up. Perfect for Collectors and Enthusiasts.
