Body Armor FAQ

Before we begin, ensure you have your actual padded under-armor kit ready: gambeson, chausses, and c-belt. Using anything else like modern jackets, sweatpants, or layered sweaters won’t provide the accurate measurements needed for fitting your brigantine. If you’re planning to order both your padded kit and brigantine from our shop simultaneously, sending your bare body measurements is acceptable. However, please inform us of this so we can properly adjust the sizing based on your true dimensions.

Additional Tips:

  • When taking measurements, stand relaxed with good posture.
  • Make sure the measuring tape is snug but not tight.
  • If you’re unsure about any measurements, it’s always best to err on the side of being slightly larger.
  • Consider having someone else take your measurements for greater accuracy.
