Pourpoints (gambesons) was protective clothing that was worn as lower layer of warrior’s armour in the Middle Ages. Pourpoint was jacket that was sewn together from many layers of fabrics or leather materials. It often was made from two durable fabrics, among which was a space that was filled with other protective materials. Poor fighters often used only a pourpoint as safety armour. The pourpoint (as forerunner of a brigandine) were developed and perfected to the end of the 11th century. It could be worn under mail shirt but also over it.
