Laced Gambeson - Black

£41.67

This style of gambeson has leather thong closures and is crafted in heavy-duty padded canvas. It has good blow-absorbing properties when worn separately and provides superior protection from cuts when worn under mail or plate. This gambeson provides a good level of protection but is not as well padded as the GDFB equivalent. The armpits are open for extra manoeuvrability.

Great priduct and worth every penny.

Well padded, I've sparred in mine regularly for about 5 months now and I'm very happy with the protection ot offers.

Durable and well made, I'm very happy with the level of manufacture. As a previous reviewer stated,the leather cord is the part most likely to fail, howevere I've had to see to a couole of tiny bits of stiching where they had started to come away - nothing major and only a 5 min job. Expected with the activity.

Great base layer, almost perfect for what I need. (Posted on 30/09/2018)

I'd been umm-ing and ahh-ing over purchasing a gamebeson online for quite a while. There were numerous factors I wanted to weigh up:
Looks, protection (length, padding etc.), price, durability and ease of cleaning.

Having scouted around, I decided to pick this item. Let's review this product based on each of the above.
Looks: Whilst not 100% authentic in its looks, it does the job nicely. Couple the item with a well fitting belt, gauntlets and helmet, and you can pass as a member of a militia with little trouble. The fact that this item comes down to just above the knees on me is a bonus - I'm not a big fan of the longer gambesons, despite their added padding.

Protection: I've taken a few hits from blunt steels with this, and whilst the bruising does come through, it's significantly better than other gambesons I've made use of. That being said, it still has room for improvement and I wouldn't rely on this to provide sole protection against harder hits or heavier weapons (particularly around the hip bone / elbow areas.

Price: Great bang for your buck, one of the best on the market. Not much more to say.

Durability: The material itself is fantastically durable and I've taken many hits over many hours with barely a single loose thread. The only issue comes with the leather twines binding the arms to the torso - easily replaced and cheap to do so, it's not a big deal. I've stocked up on several lengths as backup which I take with me when sparring.

Easy of cleaning: I know I know, you should never put something like this in the washing machine... but I have! And it came out absolutely fine. Easy to hand wash too, the fact that the arms can be separated is invaluable in this endeavour.

Overall product rating: 7.5/10. Cheap, versatile, and more than capable of giving anyone a decent entry level piece of attire. (Posted on 05/10/2017)
