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: 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!

Review of: Mail Armor Shirt

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 👍😊

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.

Review of: Mail Armor Shirt

This is my first set of chain mail armor. I was surprised when I opened the package because the mail was clean and shiny. I was expecting a heavy coat of grease like many of the other products I have ordered. The fit is excellent on my XXL frame. The links expand a bit across the chest while bending or flexing. It had a couple of minor gaps in the armpit area but they were easily fixed with some of the spare links that fell out of the package. I will have to enlarge the opening for my head to fit through the hole. This is easily done with two pliers. While butted mail does not offer the same protection as riveted mail, I did not buy this fend off a Danish axe. Highly recommended.
