Product Description

Has 3 gambesons, 3 surcoats, 3 hose, 1 codpiece, 1 cuisse, and a renal belt with pockets for plates to protect the kidneys (sizes S-XL.

Chain mail and plate armor were very expensive, and economically unfeasible for the average soldier of the Middle Ages.  Most had to make do with padded garments.  But even those who could afford armor had to wear padded garments underneath for comfort.  Other pieces of clothing were designed to be worn over armor for additional protection or as decoration.  Some of these garments were designed for civilian as well as military usage.

The primary garment for all soldiers was the padded gambeson, worn alone under armor.  Surcoats, worn over armor, gave protection from the elements, and could be decorative as well.  A coat of plates gave added protection over mail.  Padded lentners and angel-wing tunics, both with puffed chests, were worn under breastplates, or alone.
