Every medieval fight lover knows how important are low weight and mobility. These factors make this model a perfect choice for HMBIA medieval fights. The low weight was achieved by using the new type of filling - woolen felt. Sir Robert purpoint has two layers of amortization on chest area (Y7b) and one layer in the rest of the jacket (Y7a). Such solution makes our gambeson perfect for any medieval fight.

High level of mobility is another important factor here. To meet the expectations of HMBIA medieval fights enthusiasts, we have created a new sleeve pattern - so called “inverted elbow”. That’s why our aketon doesn’t go up and doesn’t hinder the movements during usage. Another extremely important feature in the clothing designed for medieval fighting is the presence of armor attachment points. You will find these in three sections of sleeves: on elbows, arms, and shoulders, in a form of openings which will ease the process of attachment. We believe this solution will be appreciated by every HMBIA medieval fight enthusiast.
As a purpoint is based on historical sources, you can also wear it during reenactment events where there is stronger emphasis on historical correctness.
