One of the most iconic pieces of chainmail armor, chainmail shirts have spread from their original function to fashion and beyond. The 48 Inch Soldier Grade Mail Shirt combines form and function in its comfortable design. 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 9.5 mm internal diameter. This item is crafted from 16 gauge mild steel. Construction is in the 4 in 1 pattern. Perfect for the non-contact or light-contact role-player on a budget, this shirt offers a great authentic appearance.

  • Uses 4 in 1 chainmail pattern

  • Great for costuming and role-playing
  • Made by GDFB

Care Instructions:

    Great quality, exceeded my expectations!

    I am always worried when I order armour or clothing, anything that you would normally try on, hoping that it fits or is truly as portrayed. The chainmail fit perfect and was all that I was hoping for.
