This is great functional multilayered gambeson armor. A gambeson is a padded defensive jacket, worn as armour separately, or combined with mail or plate armour. Gambesons were produced with a sewing technique called quilting. Usually constructed of linen or wool with the various stuffing, such as for example scrap cloth or horse hair.
This type of gambeson fits Eastern armor suits such as lamellar or laminar armor and also “Dark Ages” — like armor. Actually this gambeson is also the great underarmour for training as it is long and has full-length sleeves.
This item can be ordered with silver or golden colour trimming or without trim.

Great quality for the price. BUT it is really thin so if you want to use it for HEMA sparring etc. you need some kind of armor (like chest plate made out of composite for HEMA). Otherwise I recommend.
The gambeson is supposed to be worn under the armor, you are right.
Hello again. In regards to my earlier comment; I'm sure it wasn't anything on your end. It might have been from me wearing a hauberk over the gambeson and the clasps coming undone from that. The zipper just seemed easier than me sewing them back on after a few attempts.
Got it, thank you for the explanation. :) Well, we wish you best of luck in your fightings and you are always welcome back to ArmStreet!
A fine gambeson and a proud piece of my current sparring armor. My only regret is that I had to replace the clasps with a hidden zipper.
Thank you for your feedback!Was there a problem with the clasps? It`s important for us to know to improve the gambeson in future. Thank you and always welcome back to ArmStreet!
Is it possible to get this with no sleeves? And extra layer of padding?
The gambeson can be made with no sleeves, simply add this to the comments to your order.We cannot add an extra layer of padding, as this gambeson has already three layers of batting for the body part, and two layers for sleeves. Adding an extra layer will make it too hard and almost impossible to move while wearing it.
How long will it take to get to the united states I'm hoping to use this as part of a halloween costume ?
Manufacturing takes up to 4 weeks, plus shipping - 2-3 weeks, up to 7 weeks totally.
Fantastic - new Gambeson arrived this morning! excellent service all around. Prompt. great craftmanship. exact fit. Love your work! Definitely more orders to follow! Thanks. Si
We are pleased to get such a warm feedback, thank you! And always welcome back to ArmStreet!
Hello, I was wondering if it would be possible to order this particular gambeson with a quartile look to it ( like 2 squares red, 2 squares white). I saw you guys can play around with color, and wondered if that'd be too intricate, or if it was doable. Thanks!
Technically it's possible, we can make Combat Gambeson, European Gambeson Paladin and European Gambeson with 2 Colors Option with a quartile look for $30 extra. But we do not recommend such upgrade for oriental style gambesons, since miparti/quartile design belongs to the Western European fashion.
Hello, Is it possible to make it to 1 layer on arms, and 2 layers on body so it looks less bulky? I like the fitment of European gambeson, but I like this Asian style. If its possible, will the price be different? Thank you in asvance.
Doable, but this won't reduce the price, sorry. Simply add a comment to your order.
Does this gambeson come with "points" or laces on the shoulders to attach spaulders? The spaulders I own have a strip of leather at the top with a bar and prong like a belt. Just wondering if I could attach these spaulders to this specific gambeson. Thanks!
The spaulders can be attached to this gambeson, we can add the arming points on the shoulders for $10 extra.
Hi, there I have 2 questions for the Asian Type Long Gambeson. 1) How many layers of cotton/wool batting? 2) Can you make it long to cover the knees? Thanks, Jeff
Body - three layers of batting, and sleeves - two layers. Length to cover the knees - yes, please specify the exact length you need (from shoulder seam to the hem) in the comments to your order.

This Armour match with my Information on the Islamic Qarqal , as well , if you would add mail , it would be an great Khazaghand !!!

I have purchased this one for my girlfriend. It is very thick but not too bulky. Wonderful look. Finishing is awesome and colour is true black. I ordered mine with an external layer of black wool and lining of black linen. Great job.
Thanks for the review, Krael!
Love the gambeson, would like a green one with silver trimming. Thanks
It can be made in green with silver trimming, you're welcome to order!
