There are stories being told about you amongst the soldiers. You are the mercenary who has slain over a thousand men. You put fear in your enemies with one sweep of your weapon. Your aura of darkness freezes the hearts of anyone who looks you in the eye. And your favorite? Someone is saying you made a deal with a devil so that you may never die.

Epic Armoury’s Warrior Gambeson is a padded long-sleeve coat covering the torso from neck, down over the hips on front and back. It can be worn on its own or serve as essential padding under mail or armour. The gambeson is donned like a jacket and closed on the front with five leather straps and brass buckles, allowing the wearer to customize the tightness of the fit. The arms are easily detachable by untying its cotton cords on the shoulders and sleeves, each cord secured through long-lasting brass eyelets.
Thick enough to serve as its own armour, this sturdy gambeson is constructed with heavy layers of fluffed cotton canvas sandwiched between layers of heavy cotton canvas. All these layers are stitched together in vertical lines, keeping the padding in place and mimicking a classic European high-medieval style.
Though of European cut, gambeson or quilted-style armours have seen world-wide use since antediluvian times, making the Warrior Gambeson a great basic armour with a range of possibilities regardless of time and place.
Available in Black, Brown, Beige and White; and in sizes Small, Medium, Large, X-Large, XX-Large, 3X-Large and 4X-Large.
Quilted armours have been around since at least 400 BCE
Used as padding under chainmail or plate armour
Historically, a high-medieval European gambeson was recorded as being capable of stopping sword blows from penetrating the skin
Could stop heavy arrows and mace and axe impacts with the addition of overlaying chainmail

This cotton twill product is diagonally woven fabric similar to denim. It is quite sturdy, built to take some abuse.
Remember to wax the leather straps before putting in a washing machine or dryer. If you are able to hand wash and leave your gambeson to dry flat, this is preferable.
Machine wash at 40°C / 104°F (warm). Wash separately the first time and with similar colours afterwards. Tumble dry on low heat, but be aware that it might shrink up to 5%. For general stains or discoloration, treat with a commercial fabric cleaner, or blot with tepid water and a soft cloth.
Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.
Your squire straps your Sallet onto your head over the weight of your chainmail coif, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road.
Someone might say that you are a cruel person. The truth is that you aren’t cruel--but you certainly aren’t a hero, either. The Battle of Delle is not one for your homeland or for your own people, but the pay is good and the fighting even better.
Life as a mercenary has made you into a hardened and effective warrior, and while some call it ‘luck’ when your enemy’s sword slides off your Epic Dark Barbuta, you call it strategy. After all, now your enemy’s heart is a wide open target.
Epic Armoury’s Epic Dark Barbuta is a style of helmet inspired by Italian soldiers of the 15th century. Designed to protect the head during combat, the Barbuta is elegant as well as functional. The helmet covers the head, neck, and most of the face--while still offering clear vision through the helmet’s Y-shaped visor, which has been reinforced with additional rolled steel and rivets. Enjoy this sleek and easy to wear design, demanding attention on the battlefield with such details as the curved crest running from forehead to neck.
The Barbuta has been made to wear with renaissance style clothes, but it also has a high-fantasy feel. It has been popularized in modern culture as a helmet favoured by high-elves.
Secure the Barbuta by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
There are stories being told about you amongst the soldiers. You are the mercenary who has slain over a thousand men. You put fear in your enemies with just a glance of your unique Visored Barbuta. Your aura of darkness freezes the hearts of anyone who looks you in the eye. And your favorite? Someone is saying you made a deal with a devil so that you may never die.
You will never tell them which might be true. Instead, as you sit just beyond the campfire and clean the blood from your Visored Barbuta, you simply listen...and smirk.
Epic Armoury’s Visored Barbuta is a gracefully curved full-helmet with a distinctive visor. The visor is movable and can be flipped up over the helmet. Whether up or down, the visor can be locked in place with a pin-and-chain. The visor has two rectangular eye-slits, flat nose and a large Maltese-Cross breathing-hole. Wrought to follow the shape of the head and reinforced with a low crest from forehead to neck, the helmet is elegant while still being comfortable to wear.
The helmet gives full protection to head except at the throat. The Barbuta was used mainly by the flamboyant Italian mercenaries of the renaissance and was favoured with light troops for the mix of protection and excellent visibility. Made to wear with renaissance style clothes, it has a high-fantasy feel that will fit with a lot of characters.

Breastplate & Backplate
A suit of armour made for the most intimidating enemies on the battlefield, featuring front and back plates, faulds and tassets. With a polished steel and black paint finish and gothic-inspired accents, protect your entire torso while looking impressive. The matching breast and back plates extend below the abdomen, connecting to faulds and tassets: a series of overlapping, modelled metal plates protecting the weak spots at the pelvis and upper legs.
This fully articulated armour is designed to provide protection for the shoulders and head while allowing freedom of movement. The shoulders are composed of articulated spaulders covering the shoulder, upper arms and molded to deflect hits toward the neck and head. The shoulder plates are strapped onto the chestplate.
An essential for any person wanting to protect the legs while in battle. Consisting of cuisses to protect the lower thighs, black painted poleyns covering the knees, and half black demi-greaves protecting the upper shins, you’re less likely to take a pesky arrow to the knee--thus increasing your adventuring days. Three leather straps--one around the thigh, one below the knee, and one to attach to the belt--are used to keep each piece in place.
Arm Protection & Leg Protection
An essential for any person intending to experience the battlefield. Due to these vambraces’ and greaves’ austere style, this packaged deal is an armour solution that is particularly well suited for a dark and serious character with ill-intention. Two top grain leather straps are used to keep each piece in place.
A sleeveless, open-sided garment worn over any outfit or set of armor, often with a belt. This particular tabard is a tasteful violet-blue with black trim. Whether you are a one-man army wanting to stand out, or you are in a unit of soldiers and want to blend in, you will appear full of style, class, and distinction by wearing the Black Ice Tabard.
A top-grain black leather belt with a brass buckle and studs, designed to hold up the Black Ice Full Leg guards. This belt can also be worn over the Black Ice Tabard when not on the battlefield for a more casual look.
Please note you will need an appropriate Gambeson in order to wear this armour comfortably. This armour is only available to fitsized medium and large individuals. This set does not includes gauntlets or a helmet.
