Designed specifically for full contact medieval combat sport, our buhurt gambeson features modern lightweight, breathable and durable fabrics as standard, with the option for a natural linen outer if preferred.
It is based on historical patterns with a modern twist. The sleeves are designed for maximum mobility, the body has a flare at the hips to allow freedom of leg movement.
The lightweight wadding is 2 layers in the main garment and as a standard comes with integral spine protection of 6 layers, also 4 layers on the shoulders, hips and elbows. Wadding is removed from the inside of the elbows and under arms to prevent bunching. Front fastening with ties.
Each one is made to measure in our UK workshop. A measurement chart must be downloaded, filled, then emailed as a reply to your order confirmation email.
It is possible to have different colours in the same garment on request, please contact us for a quote.
