GAMBESON
 It was always possible to drive the point of a weapon through the rings of a mail shirt or shear it with a good cut. This often drove the damaged rings deep into the wound. Even if the blow didn't cut the mail, the blunt trauma alone was enough to break bone and damage internal organs. A thick, padded garment worn under a mail shirt greatly reduced the risk of these types of injuries. Our gambeson is of a type worn from the early middle ages well on through the Renaissance. Choose M, L or XL. Hangs approx. 32" and weighs 1 1/2 lbs. Black only.

Mail Armor Coif
From the Celts of 300 BC to 18th century Asia, mail was one of the most prized items a warrior could own. The Foe of Swords probably derived the name "mail" from the Latin Macula

Faithfully copied from examples in museums and private collections, it can be worn with or without a helmet. Outer link diameter of each link is about 7/16”, inner link diameter about 3/8”. We recommend keeping this butted steel mail oiled at all times. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

Lorica Segmentata
