This is probably a useful item for several time different periods. It is a Tubular padded vest made from wool and stuffed with scraps of fabric rather than batting. Very good under chain mail or as part of project as arms can be added. We were Viking / Saxon re-enactors in a group who didn't consider padded jackets/ gambesons to be authentic, this was eaily hidden between an undercurtle and overcurtle. You could easily add arms, a neckline and cover the padded tibes with the same material to disguise this as a curtle.

I salavaged this from a mate who was throwing alot of stuff away. He is 5'6" I am 5'11" it fits both me and it's maker. when laid out flat it is more or less 36" by 21" or 91cm by 53cm.

I am asking for £30 plus postage but am happy to negioate on price, also I could arrange delivery if I or anyone I know is heading near potential buyers from the UK.
