This gambeson was designed keeping in mind the needs of competitors in individual tournaments, where to keep balance between mobility and protection is most important. This gambeson is very light and distinguished by great mobility. It is very good to use it in individual tournaments as well as in bohurt fights - specially with full plate armour.
This gambeson is fully compatible with other products from HMB line.
The gambeson has a collar and is over-the-crotch long. To improve the mobility, the sleeve consists of two elements connected over the elbow and has a gusset under the armpit. Thanks to this design, the sleeve is better adapted to the anatomical shape of the arm. Wrist slits make it easier to put the gambeson on or off. There are also two short cuts on both sides of gambeson for better movement while walking.
- torso below the waist - horizontal
- torso over the waist - arches
- shoulders and arms - rhombuses
- forearms – close/dense horizontal quilting
Construction of padding layers was designed to keep the best possible mobility, keep the weight as low as possible and to protect body part which are most exposed to hits. Layering is illustrated on the picture attached.
Gambeson is closed on the front with 10 pewter casted buttons.
In standard option, this gambeson has bindings attached to the places where additional arm protectors are usually mounted (shoulders, arms, elbows or forearms protectors).
