Features

Specially designed model for FEDER. Also with advice from the experience of Jan Chodkiewicz of Fechtschule Gdansk Historical Martial Arts School. It has a special system of layers which guarantees maximum protection and mobility with the minimal arming protection. Additionally it protects the body from stabs and cuts. The torso and the neck have overlaps which protect against thrusts. The gambeson is tailored in a way that its lower part sits on the hips. The sleeves are made of 3 elements to guarantee the best mobility of the elbows. For the mobility of the shoulders, we use special deep-set sleeves as well as gussets in the armpits. The "FG" gambeson is composed of: 1 layer of linen (outer); 2 layers of cotton; 1 thick, thickly woven, woolen fabric layer; and finally a very sturdy cotton layer. On the shoulders, the number of protective layers increase from 1 to 3.

The gambeson is made of linen to keep historical correctness as much as possible. Using gambeson made of linen, it is necessary to remember that this fabric is less resistant (than for example cotton) for contact with sharp elements. For that reason, this jacket is not 350N certified and you should consider using additional protection gear.

For those of you who are especially interested in having a jacket with good resistant characteristic regardless of historical correctness, we sugest buying gambeson/jacket made of cotton, for example "AP" Fencing Jacket 350N or "FG" Gambeson Basic 350N.
