Padded red and black gambeson for use under armour or on its own. Sleeves have been shaped to minimise tugging at shoulders and belt when swinging the arm.

All buttons are material and heavy stitched to be extra durable. See additional pictures for more details.

Stylised from the Jupon of Charles VI, late 14th century, and the 15th century's Fiore dei Liberi's - Fior di Battaglia. Featuring Zuparello buttons that can squash flat under armour. A jupon (or fighting cotte) is a fourteenth to fifteenth-century tight-fitting padded garment worn over armor, often displaying family colours or a coat-of-arms.

Don't be misguided by claims that heavier gambesons are better. Sure, more padding can equal more protection but more weight doesn't equal more padding. It can simply mean it is larger or longer or more cumbersome. An ideal combat gambeson is a balance between softening a blow and your movement. A gambeson that is overweight can impede your skill and prowess on the battlefield. When in doubt trust only MFC products or contact us for the full story. Our gambesons are not only better designed for re-enactors they are also far better value.

Other historical names for arming jackets are: gambeson, jupon, aketon, arming doublet, gambaison, acton, arming coat, cotte, auqueton, hacketon, zuparello, haqueton, pannzar, vapntreiyu, wambais, wambesium, wambuis or wambs.

quality gambeson for very reasonable price initially i ordered a size L ,however being 6ft2 105 kg ,that wasn't large enough,MFC straight off didn't bat an eyelid when i asked to exchange it for a larger,they were only too happy to oblige,and kept the dialogue going thru both email and sms ( you just don't find customer liaison like this any more folks!) I eventually passed the gambeson to my son who was totally happy with it ,and purchased the XL ,fit is amazing ,room where it needs for movement ,and nicely tailored .a very handsome piece of garb indeed , I recommend the XL sizing for larger mammals like myself.totally happy customer ,I will be back.
Exquisite Looks and feels fantastic. Made very well.
Can move quite easily wearing it on the battle field. Great for light armour. I Would recommend this Gambeson for shore
What's red and black all over? Light, figure fitting, easy too go through drills with it on.
Though It's fine for light sparring, its true value lay in the fact that it can be modified to give a perfect fit.
I, for one, am going to still some arming points on this baby :D
Effective and Dazzling Recently purchased this gambeson from MFC at the Abbey Medieval Tournament. Very comfortable even when first worn. Colours are fantastic. I would recommend this garment highly.
