Description Item Specs
 
This Large size Haubergeon mail is waist length short sleeve style. and made with High Tensile Wire butted steel rings that are 9mm in diameter.

High Tensile steel is stronger and more flexible than regular mild steel. Comparing to the regular zinc plated or mild steel chainmail, rings are less likely to open and cause shed links. It's an alternative way to have a durable chainmail without spending a lot more money.

This chainmail hauberk is a great functional piece of armor. Featuring 16 gauge steel rings interlocked in a 4-in-1 pattern, this chainmail hauberk is ready for action. The high quality sturdy construction make this a great piece to wear for reenactments and display.

Recomended for Costumes and LARP.

Chainmail is one of the oldest forms of Armor, dating back to the mid 1st millenium BC. It is uncertain who invented chain mail but, either way, it was used in both Europe and Japan.

The earliest forms of the armor found were worn by Celtic Chiefs in the 5th Century BC. The Romans first encountered the mail in Gaul (modern day France and Belgium) and soon adopted the mail as thier own. Despite popular belief mail was the primary armor of the Roman Army, not the Lorica Segmenta.

Chain mail stayed with Europe until it reached its zenieth in the 13th century. The use of mail finally declined in the 14th century with the creation of plate amror. It is intersting that mail has always been more expensive and more time consuming to make than the Lorica Segmenta, or Plate Armor. Item comes covered in oil to protect from oxidation.
