Medieval Arming Wear
Medieval Collectables has a large variety of functional arming wear. We have padded Gambesons and Arming Caps which provide a more comfortable fit and reduce pinching from the armor when you are moving. Our Gambesons are stylish, comfortable and made of quality materials. The Gambeson is worn underneath chain mail and armour and normally both helps to protect the body from the impact of weapons and provides some degree of comfort to the wearer. Our Gambeson Set, made from a cotton shell with a captive fiber fill, is designed to make the wearing of mail reasonably comfortable while providing freedom of movement. The Gambeson set includes a matching Arming Cap, essential to the wearing of a chain mail coif. Arming caps are also used to provide padding when wearing a medieval helmet.
