Be the first to review this product

Our Sleeveless Chainmail Shirt is great for re-enactment or LARP when you don’t need the protection of a full chainmail hauberk or haubergeon weighing you down. It is constructed from 10mm 16 gauge mild steel rings with a black finish for easy maintenance.


The hauberk and haubergeon sizes are a little confusing, as they relate to the actual circumference of the mail garment, rather than a chest size. Size 48"/50" will fit up to a 44" chest dimension measured over a gambeson (and any other clothing worn with the gambeson), While the 60" size will fit up to a 54" chest dimension, again measured over the gambeson etc.


Size: Fits up to 55” chest size measured over a gambeson and undergarments


Finish: Blackened Steel
Material: 16 gauge Mild Steel
Ring Type: Round / Butted
Diameter: 10mm


All sizes are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

Product Description

Details

Mail was thought to have been invented by the Celts. The earliest example was found in a Celtic Chieftain's burial in Romania. It was a popular form of defence for the warrior elite of the Viking and Early Medieval periods. It is often (wrongly) referred to as chainmail but this terminology was first introduced by Sir Walter Scott in 1822 in his novel "The Fortunes of Nigel". In the medieval period, it was simply known as "Mail".
