Approximately 20mm thick. Compresses to 10mm in test conditions.

Sleeves (armpit to cuff): 46cm (18'')
Shoulder to thigh length: 71cm (28'')
Chest: 104cm (41'')

Don't be misguided by claims that heavier gambesons are better. Sure, more padding can equal more protec tion 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.
