I have basic gloves for now, however I would like some suggestions on a helmet/face gear and chest gear. I was thinking of getting or making a standard Gambeson that would possibly double as a future SCA approved Gambeson. However, that might not bet the best route to go. If i don't do that, I would like to be able to fully duel while in character. Any suggestions for decent padding/armor that can withstand hits without taking major damage. The few people I do duel currently(with their sabers since I'm still waiting on mine to arrive) are very heavy hitters. I will be getting soccer shin guards for my arms- they seemed sturdy enough.
Thanks in Advance-

Aaric

P.S. I'm a bigger guy currently so suggestions for 3x-4xl are preferred that can be adjusted to 2x as i lose weight; if possible. Thanks again.

See here: http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=41697.0 for a good start, as some posts that have even more links to other threads (especially this post: http://www.saberforum.com/index.php?topic=41697.msg734599#msg734599 ).

If you're dueling heavy hitters, I'm going to say you're going to want more protection that what you're currently looking at. You're certainly going to want face/head protection.


Also I'm not ashamed to admit I had to look up what Gambeson is. For everyone else who doesn't know: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gambeson . You can also google the term and get some very good picture results.
