FG Gambeson came to existence at the beginning of our business. We created this clothing with Jan Chodkiewicz and Fechtschule Gdańsk.

This medieval gambeson is characterized by the arrangement of layers that ensures maximum mobility and cushioning during training, knight tournaments, and even HMB. Both the outer layer and lining are made from linen. FG is fastened with 6 leather laces, including the one next to the collar.

Torso and collar have special overlaps on the front which protect these sections of the body. FG is cut off at the body so that its lower part rests on the hips. It has side slits. The sleeves (sewn in deeply) consist of two elements and have gussets under the armpits. This solution ensures proper mobility during training and tournament.

The stuffing of our FG gambeson

The stuffing of this medieval gambeson is made from a cotton-polyester textile of various levels of thickness:
• a layer of cotton with a special recycled non-woven fabric on chest and arms- Y1

Historical inspirations for Fechtschule Gdańsk gambeson

The shape of this gambeson was inspired by the 15th century gambesons from medieval treatises, especially Fiore de’i Liberi from 1404 or Gladiatoria from 1440 r.

Another inspiration was the Buxtehuder altar and the figure of a soldier wearing a yellow gambeson with similar stitches. The relic reaches the 1410 and it is stored in Kunsthalle Hamburg.

were a cheap protection for the fighting men in the Middle Ages, but only the poorest ones used only them as their single armour. For others they were a part of a complete protective armament, providing amortization of the hit and the protection of attritions from the armour. Among padded protective elements we can find: gambesons protecting the trunk and hands, padded gloves, padded coifs and separate hoses. They were sewn from layers of a fabric. In the 13th century gambesons were long and rather badly-fitted to the figure. They were usually put over the head and buttoned only near the neck. Later, with the development of other elements of the armour, gambesons were shorter and better fitted to the body. In the 14th and the 15th centuries they were usually buttoned at the front or laced up.
