There are stories being told about you amongst the soldiers. You are the mercenary who has slain over a thousand men. You put fear in your enemies with one sweep of your weapon. Your aura of darkness freezes the hearts of anyone who looks you in the eye. And your favorite? Someone is saying you made a deal with a devil so that you may never die.
You strap your armour over your Warrior Gambeson, preparing for battle. You will never tell them which stories might be true, but they can see for themselves your battle prowess once you step onto the field and dominate once more.
Epic Armoury’s Warrior Gambeson is a padded long-sleeve coat covering the torso from neck, down over the hips on front and back. It can be worn on its own or serve as essential padding under mail or armour. The gambeson is donned like a jacket and closed on the front with five leather straps and brass buckles, allowing the wearer to customize the tightness of the fit. The arms are easily detachable by untying its cotton cords on the shoulders and sleeves, each cord secured through long-lasting brass eyelets.
Thick enough to serve as its own armour, this sturdy gambeson is constructed with heavy layers of fluffed cotton canvas sandwiched between layers of heavy cotton canvas. All these layers are stitched together in vertical lines, keeping the padding in place and mimicking a classic European high-medieval style.
Though of European cut, gambeson or quilted-style armours have seen world-wide use since antediluvian times, making the Warrior Gambeson a great basic armour with a range of possibilities regardless of time and place.
Available in Black, Brown, Beige and White; and in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large, 3X-Large and 4X-Large.
Quilted armours have been around since at least 400 BCE

Remember to wax the leather straps before putting in a washing machine or dryer. If you are able to hand wash and leave your gambeson to dry flat, this is preferable.
Machine wash at 40°C / 104°F (warm). Wash separately the first time and with similar colours afterwards. Tumble dry on low heat, but be aware that it might shrink up to 5%. For general stains or discoloration, treat with a commercial fabric cleaner, or blot with tepid water and a soft cloth.

Sneaking through the bandit’s hideout, you pause as a particular chest catches your eye. A true adventure always comes with its fair share of loot, you think, as you inspect for traps. All seems well as you start to pick the lock, wondering what sort of treasure the bandits might be hiding.
The lid opens with an awful creak--you’re sure someone will have heard it!--and as you look inside you are excited to find the entire chest full of stolen coins and gems. You don’t have much time as you scoop several handfuls into your Warrior Bag, thanking the fact that your bag is big enough to carry so much, before you jingle toward the exit.
It’s about time something good came out of this journey!
