Medieval Mail Armor

One of the earliest uses of metal protection was chain mail armor.  Made up of tens of thousands of interlocking rings, it was woven by hand and formed into protective shirts, coifs and even leggings. Chain mail, or more properly "mail", dates back to antiquity; the name itself is derived from the Latin "macula" meaning "mesh of net." It is believed to have been invented by the Celts and adopted by the Romans after their warring with them. The use of mail continued until the presence of gunpowder increased in the 16th century.

Review of: Riveted Dark Aluminum Mail Armor Coif

Best costume coif I've ever seen! Light, sturdy and a great color. The aluminum is sealed in a way that even seems like it will prevent snags, etc., in additional to minimizing oxidation.  Highly recommended... in honesty, I wish I could afford the full hauberk! All aluminum chain mail should be made this way.

Review of: Mail Gauntlets

I bought mediums and they are a little snug, maybe runs a bit small but they are a fantastic addition to my templar costume and just feel like you could take on any manner of army or creature.

Review of: Mail Gauntlets

Well made gauntlets.  Leather glove is a little snug but feels like it will loosen up over time.

The mail armor shirt is excellent. I'm very excited wearing this to the medieval fair. I sometimes just wear it around the house because I like it so much.

Review of: Mail Gauntlets

Very pleased with these!! Costume gauntlets they ARE NOT!!!
These are the real deal and very high quality. The leather gloves, the maille, the steel plates... One thing I would point out, that you might not be able to see from the picture, is the steel vambrace starting at the opening of the glove, is not one solid piece of steel, but 6 strips of steel, 3 on top, 3 underneath.
I didn't know this when I ordered them, but am GLAD they are!! It makes for a much more custom fit. I have hands that are a little bit on the "thick" side, and from the top of my middle finger to the bottom of my palm is exactly '7 inches, so I ordered Size Medium; and they fit..... Well, "Like a glove", lol.

Review of: Mail Armor Coif

I just received this and am totally delighted with it.  I wasn't sure how good the quality would be considering the reasonable price but when I pulled it out and examined it, I was very impressed.  I put it on and walked in on my wife and son holding one of my recently acquired swords and once they were done laughing, they both agreed the coif looked very cool and quite authentic.  It fits great and though heavy...(as one would expect)...it is not difficult to wear for a long period.  This would be great at a Renaissance Fair or similar event.  I'm not sure where I'm going to use it but I'm glad I got it and I highly recommend it.
