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 as well as made the armour more comfortable to wear.

These upper leg paddings protect like a gambeson and reach to just below the knee. The pads are fastened from the back with laces, and can be suspended from an arming belt or an arming jacket with arming laces (sold separately). Made of 100% cotton canvas by Marshall Historical. Sold as a pair.
