Padded Armour Company - Early Medieval Gambeson
This early medieval gambeson, or acheton, is made
in heavy off-white linen, with a lighter weight
linen lining.

The gamby is straight-quilted, with three layers of
woollen padding.  

It is knee length, and has short sleeves.

This is a front fastening gambeson, which fastens
with hand made hooks and eyes, over an internal
port piece.

The back of the gambeson is split, and there are
underarm gussets, allowing full arm mobility.
