Warrior Gambeson, Black
The Epic Armoury Gambeson Warrior is a padded long-sleeve coat covering the torso from neck, down over the hips on front and back. It can be worn on its own or serve as essential padding under mail or armour. The gambeson is donned like a jacket and closed on the front with five leather straps with brass buckles. The arms are easily detachable by untying its cotton cords on the shoulders and sleeves, each cord secured through long-lasting brass eyelets.
Thick enough to serve as its own armour, this sturdy gambeson is constructed with heavy layers of fluffed cotton canvas sandwiched between colored cotton canvas, all stitched together in vertical lines. The stitching keeps the padding in place and mimics a classic European high-medieval style.
Though of European cut, gambeson or quilted-style armours have seen world-wide use since antediluvian times, making the Gambeson Warrior a great basic armour with a range of possibilities regardless of time and place.
