This robust gambeson is constructed from durable cotton canvas cloth and is well-padded on the inside with cotton felt. This organic interior padding breathes better than any synthetic fiber gambeson. A quilted design uses stitching to intersect the gambeson and ensure that the padding stays in place. With a frontal set of leather straps and adjustable brass buckles this gambeson is easier to don than many, and can also be worn like a stiff and thick coat. A closed armpit design may not ventilate heat as well as an open design, but it gives an important last defense to the armpit, and ensures that it is a far less tempting target to a foe looking for an opening. It's a perfect piece of protective gear for soldiers, men-at-arms, and knights alike in LARP, SCA or historical re-enactments.
