For re-enactment and medieval display fighting, a gambeson is a must-have. The gambeson, also known as an aketon, padded jack, or arming doublet, was worn beneath plate and chainmail armour. It improved the comfort of these steel armours and increased their ability to absorb hostile hits, lowering the chance of injury.
Ulfberth's gambeson is made up of four layers of fabric: a cotton canvas outer layer, two layers of woolen padding, and a soft cotton inner.
- 100 percent cotton on the outside.
- 100 percent cotton lining
- 100 percent wool filling (padding)
- Black in color (also available: natural-coloured)
- Approximate collar height: 5 cm
