FG HISTORICAL 800N, just like the regular 350N, Light or PRO version,
is based on the project which came to existence years ago for
Fechtschule Gdańsk. The shape of this HEMA gambeson was inspired by the

layer of recycled felt.

rests on the hips. The sleeves (sewn in deeply) consist of 2 elements
