Perfect for re-enactors or stage performers who need authentic looks but don't need authentic weight! This extremely light mail utilizes aluminum rings which have been riveted for durability. Even if you wear it all day long you'll hardly notice the weight. Faithfully copied from examples in museums and private collections, the diameter of each outer link is about 1/2”. Mail shirts fit up to a 54” chest with a 33” long shirt; the sleeves are approximately 18” and hang to just below the elbows on average height warriors.  Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    On the plus side, it's incredibly light and incredibly pretty. Light reflects off of the flats of the rings so that the armor glitters. On the negative side, the rings are so thin where they are flattened for a rivet that they become too fragile. Rings near the neckline begin to tear from bearing the weight of the armor. So as much as I wish I didn't have to, I was forced to return this item.
