This purpoint without quilting is a type of medieval gambeson designed for knight fighting. This model of medieval jacket can be worn during reenactment events and as camp gambeson.
Our medieval jacket is sewn from fabrics of high quality. Its outer and inner layers are made of linen. Purpoint is closed with a long lace finished with aiglet in an overcast lacing method. This medieval jacket also has a low collar. Its most distinguishing feature is the lack of quilting. This solution gives it a more civil look, similar to cottehardie, and makes this clothing can be used not only for fighting but also as a civil garment.
What medieval fighters will surely like the most in this medieval jacket are its low weight and high level of mobility. The chest area is average (Y7b) than the rest of this purpoint (Y7a). Such construction, together with properly fitted armor, will make a perfect set for medieval battles.
More information about thickness you can find here.
High mobility is provided by the use of a new sleeve pattern - so called “inverted elbow”. It does not hinder the movement and it prevents the purpoint from going up. Thanks to these features, users of our medieval jacket will surely appreciate it during a knight fight.
