About our Arming Cap 

Our heavyweight cotton arming cap is made with the same construction as our cotton gambeson. Its made with an outer layer of heavy cotton canvas and has a medium weight cotton 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.

"All I have to say is, wow, that is a gambeson! It fits perfectly...and it has that solid feel to it that definitely reminds me of the fact that often they were worn as the only armor. Thanks again!”
