This acketon is based on 15th century originals that can be seen in various illuminated medieval manuscripts. Perfect for late medieval and Renaissance re-enactment and for LARP and Cosplay. The acketon covers the body to the hips. It is incredibly practical in use thanks to the many laces on the sleeves and at the bottom. These are meant for attaching plate armor, jackchains and the like. The sleeves are removable and can be fastened with the cotton laces. A nice detail: all cotton laces that are attached to this gambeson have a historically correct brass lace end.
This gambeson consists of three layers of fluffed cotton canvas with a soft cotton inner lining and a wool mix exterior, it can be worn during re-enactment and LARP battles. It has a raised collar for extra protection at the neck. At the front you can tie it up with cotton laces. This acketon is very comfortable and offers excellent freedom of movement.
