Description

With full sleeves and knee-length protection, the hauberk is an ideal piece of defensive armor. The 48 Inch Soldier Grade Mail Hauberk offers protection on the battlefield without limiting the movements of its wearer. Butted mail is the most economical construction style of mail, as the cost of labor-intensive riveting is avoided. Butted mail has limited historical precedent but is fine for general costuming and role-playing where strict construction authenticity is not a requirement. It is not recommended for weapons-contact re-enactment as mild steel butted rings may be distorted by heavy weapons contact. The rings are formed from round section wire and have a 10 mm internal diameter. This item is crafted from 16 gauge mild steel. Construction is in the 4 in 1 pattern.

Care Instructions – This chainmail has a zinc-plated finish. No rust-proofing is necessary with zinc-coated finishes, but dry, warm storage is still recommended. The zinc plating is inherently a corrosion inhibitor.

  1. Brad C.

    For the price this is a pretty solid hauberk. I’ve had it for about four months now and haven’t had any problems with it aside from two separate rings coming undone on two different occasions. Being butted and not riveted, that’s expected and an easy fix if you don’t lose the rings as they fall off.

    I’m about six feet tall and the bottom of the shirt falls a few inches below my knees, which makes running a bit tough without cutting it up the center a bit for easier movement, which is a simple fix with a pair of pliers or wire cutters.

    For the size, the shirt isn’t terribly heavy, being just over 30 pounds. When worn with plate armor and a belt the weight distributes nicely. The sleeves are long enough to be worn without any vambraces, but aren’t awkwardly long if you do wear vambraces.

    Overall, it’s a good economical product and worth the price.
