Its made with an outer layer of heavy, 7.5 oz linen for with three layers of cotton batting and has a medium weight cotton canvas lining. Based on the concept of a padded coif as shown used in a military context in 13th century sources and the three panel coif pattern that is used in later medieval periods. Use it on its own or inside your helmet.

“Foundation garments like the gambeson are critical to the comfort and functionality of the complete harness. Particularly in the joust where even minor problems with how the harness fits and functions will affect the rider's ability to function safely and at the best of his or her ability. The Revival Gambeson performed flawlessly.”

“I want to thank you for such prompt service, and tell you how glad I was to find you. I am new to the WMA world, and initially only wanted to find protective garments for use in longsword bouting. I did a thread search on Sword Forum International, and your company was recommended frequently there. As I browsed your site, I was amazed to find that I could not only obtain the protection, but period correct protection!  I look forward to a long and fun relationship.”
