A gambeson is virtually indispensable for re-enactment and medieval show fighting.
The gambeson, also called aketon, padded jack or arming doublet, was usually worn underneath plate and chainmail armours. It made these steel armours more comfortable to wear and could absorb enemy blows, thus reducing the risk of injury.
