Medieval Clothing

Gambesons are padded under tunics. Aketon, Arming coat, Bambikion, Haqueton or Subarmalis, as you may call it, our Gambesons are useful in a no. of ways:

1. Gambesons serve as a support for the weight of the metal armor. They spread the weight much better on the shoulders.
2. The gambeson assures that the metal armor stays at a safe distance from the skin. This avoids nasty wounds in combat.
3. It acts as a cushion to diffuse the force of a blow.
