Padded Upper Leg and Knee Armor - Black

Also Available:

Please Make a Selection:

This pair of thigh-and-knee gambeson protection is crafted from thick canvas with internal poly-fill. The knee receives extra protection from a sewn concave disk of hardened leather. The armor is worn by suspending its integrated belt loops to a belt and adjusting the thick leather lacing to fit. Suede leather lined edges give a degree of added durability to the edges of this padded armor.

Ideal for up-armoring your existing canvas or chainmail armor kit, this padded armor, like its historical predecessors, imparts good protection from cuts and gives a degree of impact resistance. Historically a padded cloth armor was often the only form of protection available for many medieval and renaissance soldiery; it did give good protection from cuts and requires good cutting technique to cut through cleanly and easily. That may be easy enough to do on a standing dummy target but it is a more difficult prospect against an opponent who is actively fighting back.

Despite its protection, padded armor is clearly best when paired with chainmail or plate armor and used as an underneath layer for impact absorption.
