Out of stock


The smaller and finer worked the rings are, the more protection offered. We are proud to offer the peak of the armorer's art and patience as it pertains to mail. The butted, 17 gauge steel rings are only 3/16" round, providing unsurpassed protection. Incredibly dense, the rings provide the ultimate defense against whatever comes your way. As a result of the number of links needed, this shirt is not lightweight. Length is approximately 31" with a 55" chest. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. We recommend keeping this mail oiled at all times. Express delivery not available on mail. $6.00 additional shipping & handling charge with shirt.
  • Wt: 31-1/2 lbs

It fits great and holds up perfectly! I know some people have had a problem with this but I think they're more the exception than the rule. This is a great piece and it's strong unless you just poorly mistreat it or take care of it. Like all real pieces of armor or weaponry, take care of it and it will take care of you.

does not hold up in combat very well the rings around the armpit area have a tendacy to fall apart. Im constantly making repairs.
