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: Mesh Mail Shirt

In my daughter's words "SHARP!  SHINY!  BRIGHT!"  Cut her some slack, she's five.  
It's light, strong, and maneuverable -- well worth the cost and, for those who have experience with heavier chain mail, this requires absolutely no assistance to put on.  I have purchased one for each member of the family for a lifetime of enjoyment and protection.  Enjoy!

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: Arming Cap, Quilted

Great arming cap. I wear it under my MRL Mail Coif and my MRL Visored Bascinet. Now the Arming Cap itself is a touch on the thin side, BUT if it were any thicker whatsoever my mail and helmet would be too tight. As of now they all fit perfect!! Not just trying to get reward points here. This arming cap is well put together and made to last, and mine has seen plenty of Renaissance Faires! Grab one,  you won’t regret it 👍😊
