Armour padding instruction by Noctiped Armour padding instruction by Noctiped
I got a little bored yesterday, and suddenly found a pile of documentation photos from my last padding project.
So I decided to share a little knowledge.

Comments are welcome.

EDIT: Clarifyed some details, and changed into a readable font and color. Adjusted some minor spelling mistakes. Added extra lion at the bottom.

Haha. =)

Theoretically you could make one really good padding, and therefore save money on replacing one or two cheap ones, but if you count the work time it quickly becomes a very unbalanced equation. ;)

Glad you like it. =)

Thank you. =)
I did some adjustments a few days ago, to make it even more understandable.
And finally got the bloody text black instead of dark blue. =P

No problem. =)

Well, this particular gambeson is a little tight around the elbows, which hinders motion a little.
Other than that it allows perfect mobility. It has been used some years now though, and it was much stiffer when it was new.
The major difference between with/without gambeson is the heat. Unless it is cold outside you start sweating about 15 minutes after taking it on, no matter what you do. Faster if you fight in it or are walking. However, it can be quite cosy on chilly evenings, or in winter. =)
