A woolen purpoint without quilting is a type of universal civil medieval gambeson. This type of aketon will work well as a camp clothing, a gambeson for reenactment or a purpoint under the armor.
This woolen purpoint is made of high quality materials. The outer layer is made of wool while the lining layer - of linen. This aketon is closed with an overcast lacing method, with the use of a long string finished with aiglets. The purpoint has also a low collar.
However, the most distinguishing feature of this purpoint will be the lack of quilting. It gives the clothing a more civil look, making it a bit similar to cottehardie. This woolen purpoint is also characterized by its low weight. It is a result of using the innovative way of filling with woolen felt. Amortization layer on the chest is average (Y7b) than on the rest of this purpoint (Y7a).

The new design of the sleeve, so called “inverted elbow”, increases the level of mobility in our purpoint. Construction does not hinder the movement and does not go up while wearing. It is an all-purpose garment. Woolen purpoint works perfectly as civil clothing, camp clothing, or under-armor clothing. As it is based on historical sources, we can recommend it for both reenactors and HMB fighters.
