Fits great, the 2 piece assembly works amazingly well and should be the new standard for any padded jacket. This will greatly assist me in figuring out the Johannes Liechtenauer mitigating injuries.

Here in Loch Soilleir its hot as hell! One the the errors I believe heavy fighters make in the SCA is not understanding why gambeson was used. It blunts a blow and acts to absorb the force of a strike. In short it's a buffer. But again here in Loch Soilleir, its muggy, humid, and down right hot! Which is exactly why this gambeson is so dag on AWESOME! You can do away with the body of the piece and still have padding on your arms! Allowing you to point your vambraces couters rerebrace and spaulders/pauldrons all the while giving your body some room to exchange heat. I will always have on of these. I just fold my sleeve because they're a little long and wham instant added padded protection to my wrists. Not to mention the piece looks decent as feast garb. Did I mention it comes with points already built into it. Fortunately for me the points were exactly where I needed them to be(Armstreet magic I guess!), but adding some doesnt hurt if you need to. For heavy fighters this is another must have product, especially if you fight in a warmer climate. Throw those three black underarmor shirts you sewed together away, and buy one of these! "For God's sakes man! You might not be a knight yet, but looking like one gets people talking?! If you want be a knight, at least dress like one with this Kingmaker Gambeson!"

hi, before i got this i had the European Padded Jack “Paladin”, while it was a great fit and looked really cool, it was a bit uncomfortable under a cuirass (the seem up the side was in the way mostly). i got the kingmaker to make a warhammer empire captian ish look. and not only is the colour amazing, the fact it is in 2 parts is amazing. i can move so much more easely in the arms, and it is so much more comfortable under the cuirass. lots of movability, if there was a rating system, it would be 5 stars. cant wait to get the legs part of this.

Is it possible to have one made that is red with black trim in a xl size?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Josh, this particular gambeson can be made in offerred colors only. However, we can make Hound of War gambeson for you in red linen with black edging.

Will there be a restock or is it possible to place an order for the large size? Alternatively how forgiving would sizing be if I am at the top edge of the medium size chart?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Ben, we often re-stock all the sizes and colors. We can see most of the color combinations are available in size L at the moment. Kindly send us your measurements and colors you are interested in so we could help you to choose the right size and tell when your size will be back in stock.

I see the garment has a "Slim fit" description. Could you please explain the slim fit description.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Russell, it means that this gambeson will fit like on the pictures of the listing. For comparison, our Asian type gambeson fit more loosely.

Are there any special requirements for cleaning this item? Like is it dry clean only or can you clean it through any normal method?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Eric, dry cleanning is prefferable. However, you may also wash it gently with hands in warm water with soap and then try it flat on the towel.

Would it be possible to custom order one with an extended inner garment, so instead of a crop top it comes down to the waist?

ArmStreet Team

Dear Justin, customization of this gambeson is not possible at the moment, sorry. This gambeson comes in fixed sizes only and pre-made products cannot be altered, unfortunately.

Hi; what is the length of the sleeves from shoulder to wrist? Thank you,

ArmStreet Team

Hi Jay! The sleeve length for XL size is 68-70 cm.

Would it be possible just to have the inner part, so just the arms and the upper chest part. So it does not have the body padding.


Hi Tristan! Unfortunately, it is not possible to purchase the parts of the gambeson separately.
