It was always possible to drive the point of a weapon through the rings of a mail shirt or shear it with a good cut. This often drove the damaged rings deep into the wound. Even if the blow didn't cut the mail, the blunt trauma alone was enough to break bone and damage internal organs. A thick, padded garment worn under a mail shirt greatly reduced the risk of these types of injuries. Our gambeson is a type worn from the early Middle Ages well on through the Renaissance. Available in sizes M, L and XL. Hangs approximately 32" and weighs 1-1/2".  Black only, 100% cotton, hand wash.

    I'm a big guy, XL or XXL pretty much everywhere, I got this as an XL and I was swimming in it. One hassle-free exchange later and I got a Large, it's still a little bigger around the middle than I'd like but the shoulders are good and so are the sleeves so I don't think a medium would work. But once I slap on a sword belt most of the excess material is held in place. It is comfortable and gives unrestricted movement

    I bought this gambeson to go under my chain mail, and really like it. One thing to think about if buying one, is the size. They are sized on the large side. I ended up exchanging mine for a smaller size.

    Excellent workmanship and looks great. I find the Medium a very good fit (40" chest, 35" waist).

    WARNING!!! These are a lot bigger than the sizing chart says they are. A large for instance has a 56" waist. Otherwise it's a lovely item.
