A long medieval pourpoint is a type of medieval gambeson that combines low weight with high mobility. The gambeson material used in this model, together with its design, will work fine for reenactors looking for comfort of use.
Long medieval pourpoint was created for the most demanding users. Wool is the main gambeson material used in this model. It works as a civil version of our linen pourpoint. This gambeson material has vertical stitchings on the whole length, both on torso and sleeves. It reaches the knees and it is tied with a string. The woolen pourpoint has also a collar which is buttoned up on the side.
This gambeson is made of wool, with linen lining. Another gambeson material used in this model is a new filling - woolen felt of two levels of thickness:
- average on chest - Y7b;
- thinner throughout the rest - Y7a.
More information about thickness you can find here.
This design provides good amortization and mobility when combined with a proper armor. It will work both as a civil garment and during a fight.
The cut of this pourpoint gives a high mobility. It has a new sleeve pattern - so called inverted elbow. This lowers the possibility of lifting up the clothing during wearing and does not hinder the movement.
