Designed specifically for full contact medieval combat sport, our bohurt gambeson features modern lightweight, breathable and durable fabrics on the sports model.
Alternatively linens and deluxe cotton/bamboo wadding, with naturally anti-bacterial qualities, in the historical model.
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.
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 the sleeves a different colour to the main body on the sports model at no extra charge, please note this in the comments box before completing checkout if required.
Allow 10-12 weeks for shipping.
