These Chainmail Leggings are waist length and made with High Tensile Wire butted 16G steel rings that are 9mm in diameter.

High Tensile Steel similiar to the spring steel. It is stronger and more flexible than regular mild steel. Comparing to the regular zinc plated or mild steel butted 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.

Recommended for Costumes and LARP.

Chainmail is one of the oldest forms of Armor, dating back to the mid 1st millennium 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 their 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 zenith in the 13th century. The use of mail finally declined in the 14th century with the creation of plate armor. It is interesting that mail has always been more expensive and more time consuming to make than the Lorica Segmenta, or Plate Armor.

Each legging is up to 50 inches in length and 11 inches in width.

A belt is required to for the leggings.

Belt sold separately. Item comes covered in oil to protect from oxidation.
