Gambesons

Welcome to section “Gambesons”. Here you can see various models of padded under armour, which were worn by medieval knights.

European knights saw the true value of padded under armour only in the XII-XIII centuries. Such clothing was called padded jacket, gambeson, aketon or doublet. All these types were rather similar in meaning, but had own characteristics and differences.  For example, aketon could be worn under the main armour, and highly decorated thin gambeson was worn over the body defense. Sometimes it could be combined: sleeveless gambeson was worn over the aketon to reinforce its protective features.


Every model is hand-made according to the medieval patterns.
