From the Celts of 300 BC to 18th century Asia, mail was one of the most prized items a warrior could own. The "Foe of Swords " probably derived the name "mail" from the Latin "Macula" meaning net. This shirt features 16 gauge links combined in the "international" pattern, with 4 links through a 5th, which was common to all European mail. Faithfully copied from examples in museums and private collections, the diameter of each outer link is about 7/16”, and the inner link diameter is about 3/8”. Mail shirts fit up to a 54” chest, 33” long shirt, sleeves are approximately 18” and hang to just below the elbows on average height warriors. We recommend keeping this butted mail shirt oiled when not in use. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Express delivery not available on mail. Mail Shirts add $6 each additional s/h.

    Fits pretty snug to my 165 lbs frame but covers half my forearms and all of my thighs. Good hefty weight as well. Looks great with Templar tunic or leather jerkin over it.

    I bought this along with the coif and love it. Everyone I show it to finds it impressive, and comment on how heavy it is. Well it is what it is, real armor!! Love how it flows and moves. After you are used to the weight you almost don't know you have it on. Agree with some others that the sleeves could be longer, but still recommend it to anyone thinking of getting chain mail.

    This is an excellent piece of armor. My only complaint is that, like Gimli, I find it a little tight across the chest.

    Good, tough mail! I love my chain mail. My only wish is that it had longer sleeves.
