Asian Gambeson Padding

Long cotton padded robe with trim

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.

Materials:

  • 100% natural cotton for the external layer
  • 100% natural flax linen for the lining
  • 100% natural cotton/wool batting for the padding

    I need this for an event to be here by April 17th. Is that possible?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jackson, yes it is possible with express shipping if the order is placed today. Kindly leave a comment to your order with the deadline so we could make sure your order arrives on time. 

  • Bigus Diccus 06 of November 2017:

    I'm new to armor and I'm looking to purchase my first set. I once saw this being worn and fell in love with it, but then I saw in the description that it fits Eastern and Dark Age armors. Does this mean that other armors won't fit over-top of it, or was it more of a reference to its aesthetic?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Bigus, yes, of course it will fit any armor. It is just an aesthetic aspect. 

  • Tommi U. 03 of March 2017:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    The gambeson is supposed to be worn under the armor, you are right.

  • John 10 of January 2017:

    Would it be possible to have this gambeson with a slit down the middle of the back starting at the waist? Kind of like a jacket.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi John, yes it is possible. 

  • David C May 06 of January 2017:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    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!

  • David C May 05 of January 2017:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    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!

  • Cuda 04 of November 2016:

    Is it possible to get this with no sleeves? And extra layer of padding?

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • David Dang 03 of June 2016:

    Can you make it with leather straps and buckles instead of the clasps? Maybe 5 or 6 straps down the center?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi David, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for more details. 

  • Zak 01 of April 2016:

    Is this gambeson suitable and safe for use in full speed HEMA sparing with steel weapons? (combined with appropriate equipment for the parts of the body not covered by the gambeson of course)

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Zak, this gambeson is not suitable for HEMA, unfortunately. 

  • sara charles 13 of September 2015:

    How long will it take to get to the united states I'm hoping to use this as part of a halloween costume ?

    ArmStreet team:

    Manufacturing takes up to 4 weeks, plus shipping - 2-3 weeks, up to 7 weeks totally.

  • Simon Hallewell 21 of June 2015:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    We are pleased to get such a warm feedback, thank you! And always welcome back to ArmStreet!

  • Doug Mayovsky 02 of March 2015:

    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!

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Jin 02 of January 2015:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    Doable, but this won't reduce the price, sorry. Simply add a comment to your order.

  • Sean 27 of August 2014:

    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!

    ArmStreet team:

    The spaulders can be attached to this gambeson, we can add the arming points on the shoulders for $10 extra.

  • Jeff 15 of June 2014:

    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

    ArmStreet team:

    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.

  • Krael 11 of October 2009:

    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.

    ArmStreet team:

    Thanks for the review, Krael!

  • Richard Hulvey 23 of March 2009:

    Love the gambeson, would like a green one with silver trimming. Thanks

    ArmStreet team:

    It can be made in green with silver trimming, you're welcome to order!
