Gambeson's, while essentially quilted cloth, providing surprisingly good protection on their own. While the armor isn't as good at deflecting blows as harder armor, it's ability to absorb blows due to it's softer construction gives it resist +2/4/6 to all damage at heroic, paragon and epic tiers.

Magic Gambeson's[edit]

Magic armor adds an enhancement bonus to AC. Magic appears at higher levels and grants higher armor bonuses than its mundane counterpart. Magic armor always has an enhancement bonus, and the price of the armor material is incorporated into the overall cost of the magic armor.
