Product Description

Details

Chainmail provides excellent cut resistance but unfortunately does not cushion the blow from the attacker’s weapon. As such a thickly padded gambeson was worn underneath to stop the impact trauma. Soldiers that could not afford chainmail generally wore thicker gambesons with higher collars as their sole form of protection (with the exception of a helmet). Gambesons worn under armour were usually thinner to help with manoeuvrability.
