Description of the Product

It was always possible to drive the point of a weapon through mail rings or shear it with a good cut. This often drove the damaged rings deep into the wound. Even if the blow didn't cut the mail, the blunt trauma alone was enough to break bone or cause internal damage. A thick, padded garment worn under mail greatly reduced the risk of these types of injuries. A padded layer under mail as well as plate armour absorbed shocks but also made the armour more comfortable to wear.

This padded gorget protects like a gambeson and is ideal for protecting the all important neck and shoulder area. The gorget is fastened with leather straps and buckles, and fits a neck of approx. 35–42 cm
circumference. Made of 100 % cotton canvas by Marshall Historical.
