Review of: Blackened Mail Armor Shirt

I love this mail. I have wanted a chain mail  shirt since i was a teenager. When i finally got it i was not disappointing. Bear in mind, if you have never wore a chain shirt, it is not easy on easy off.  20 plus pounds, so now i truly understand the need for a squire. the sleeves are very long as well. Im about 5'10, 5'11 and i can tuck the mail under my bracers. Also it comes with heavy amount of grease on it, so before driving to your cosplay even or renfair, put down a towel or get some good degreaser  for it or you will have a pretty permanent mess on your hands. The price is very low considering the quality. Don't buy other chain mail. Buy Windlass. It delivers.

Review of: Blackened Mail Armor Shirt

This is an absolute must for any armour: Chainmail. The black chainmail is a nice unique version to your armour. This version has a big impact to those who see it on you. It also gives a nice contrast to any armour plate you wear on top of it. Wearing chainmail for the first time,is also interesting. The weight is 23 pounds added to your own. You can feel it in the feet. It also "stretches" in the chest, very odd at first. Museum Replicas did a very good job creating this armour. Most of the links where well butted together. I waited about six months for the chainmail to arrive. It was worth the wait. Remember: they make these by hand in India. It took me a month to make a 9x9 square of chainmail. Thier hard work is worth your wait. I love this armour. Get one, it's all worth it.

Review of: Mail Armor Shirt

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.

Review of: Plated Brass Mail Armor Shirt

Got this as a Deal of the Day. Absolutely love it! I'm 6'3" and 270 lbs and it fits great. Only thing worth mentioning is the sleeves aren't elbow length, but all the way to the wrists. High quality mail shirt!

Review of: Mail Armor Shirt

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