Here you see our range of gambesons and padded armour. In LARP a gambeson can be worn very well underneath leather, plate or chainmail armour. It offers protection from hard blows or bruises caused by the weight of your armour. We recommend every fighter to wear some kind of padding, as it makes wearing armour just so much more comfortable. If you use it frequently with the same armour, it pays off to tie some pieces like spaulders, arm or leg plating directly to the gambeson jacket. This will spread the weight evenly and helps to get ready for battle much more quickly.
However, gambesons are not only suitable as undergarment for armour. They also work really well as a warm a jacket while being very becoming. Shirt, pants, gambeson, belt – and your simple but stylish LARP costume is ready.
Almost all models are available starting from size XS and are therefore also suitable for women and girls. For female fighters we recommend especially the Gambeson “Greifenfels” as it is cut slim-fit and accentuates the figure really nicely.
Gambesons can get very sweaty, especially in summer and then they will take a while to dry. Therefore we recommend to pack in a second one for changing.
