European Padded Jack “Paladin”

SCA flax linen gambeson padding

This underarmor jack is ideal for fighters who don't like bulky jackets and want to have something between their armor and body at same time. Authentic stitching shape is very ergonomic, gambeson has only one natural batting layer, so it's pretty thin.

It's also available with 2 layers of batting for $35 extra.

External layer is made of natural flax linen, lining is made of natural linen too. This gambeson also can be used as a warm jacket, since it looks really good.

Hi Armstreet, Is it possible to make this gambeson in a pullover style instead of buttons on the front? Please let me know. Thanks.

ArmStreet team:

The pullover style for the gambeson is not possible, but the buttons can be replaced with buckles or ties upon request. Buckles - $50.00 extra, ties - $20.00 extra.


Beautiful construction and fits like a glove. Several alterations were made to the standard gambeson (I requested buckles and arming points) and at every step of the process Armstreet were professional and accommodating which made the process very easy.

ArmStreet team:

Thank you for your wonderful review! That`s a pleasure for us to do our work for you. :)
Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

Chuck Friend:

Looking at ordering as Paladin padded jack in black - custom sized for me. Could it be done with strap and buckle closure instead of buttons. What would be the total price for the coat with shipping and what would be the time frame for making it and shipping it to me. In other words - whn would I have it?

ArmStreet team:

The gambeson can be made with straps and buckles instead of buttons for $35.00 extra.
Manufacturing normally takes 27-31 days, shipping takes 16-21 days. This way, you`ll receive the gambeson in approximately one month and a half since ordering.


Hi! I note that it says on the site that some customisation is available. Would it be possible to have this gambeson made with arming points, and buckles instead of buttons? And if so what would that cost? Also, would you be able to tell me how long the gambeson is? I'm only 5'5" and I'm concerned it might be a little long. Thanks heaps!

ArmStreet team:

The arming points and buckles are possible for $50.00 extra.
As for the length, the custom size gambeson will be made according to your measurements, so the length will be also adjusted to your height.

Kyle Sampson:

I just purchased this and it arrived the other week, about a week sooner than I even expected it to be manufactured. I absolutely love it. Good fit, not too heavy or restricting. Solid stitching, and a nice simple look that is very easy to build on top of. I'm very satisfied with this product.

ArmStreet team:

Pleased to hear this, we're very happy that you liked the gambeson! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experiences.


I was wondering if you had any photos of a complete gambeson in the brown and the faun clours. I'm having trouble making up my mind

ArmStreet team:

Usually we make photoshoots of our items only in one basic color, so unfortunately there are no pictures of this gambeson in different colors, sorry.

Bill Brickman:

Is it possible to order this gambeson except with the button style of the woolen gambeson?

ArmStreet team:

Yes, button style of the woolen gambeson - $20 extra, simply add a comment to your order.

Thomas Jacobs:

I noticed that this gambeson comes in all the same colors as the leg padding does except orange. Is this an oversight or is it not possible to make a gambeson from that same color of flax?

ArmStreet team:

Just a bug, the gambeson can be made of orange flax linen as well.

Nathan L:

This is a very well presented and padded gambeson the picture doesn't do it justice, another very well made product good job armstreet!

Armstreet team:

Great, we're pleased to get such a review! Thank you!

Ted Powell:

ArmStreet team:

Many thanks for your feedback, Ted!

Kyle Carter:

When ordering this how do I order it with the 2 layers of batting?

My name is Michelle Ashbounre and I am the Wardrobe Buyer for the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. We have purchased a large quantity of your European Style Gambeson's under Order #s 12136 & 12349 and I have a question in regards to the fabrics. I need to know the fabric content of the outter fabric as well as the stitching. If you could get back to me asap with that information that would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Michelle Ashbourne

ArmStreet team:

External layer and lining are made of natural flax linen.
Padding - natural cotton based batting.
Stitching - cotton with small addition of synthetic fibers for elasticity.
