Description of the Product

Mail shirts were difficult and time consuming to make and therefore very expensive. Good protection, however, often separated the dead fighters from the living, and so rich and powerful warriors invested. Haubergs (like this model) were used throughout Europe from the Dark Ages to the Renaissance. Hauberg is a mail shirt with long sleeves and with a skirt extending at least to the mid-thigh.

Mail is very durable, but due to its flexibility a forceful blow could cause bone fractures or contusions even if lacerations were avoided. That is why heavy padding, such as the thick and soft gambeson was used underneath mail shirts.

This shirt is made of 1.6 mm thick steel links built in the standard European pattern, with 4 links through a 5th. Each link is blackened, which provides protection from corrosion. We however recommend that you keep the mail lightly oiled to prevent rusting.
