Dressed in your finest armour with your most loyal soldiers by your side, you parade the streets in display of your victory. The closely woven rings of your John Steel Chainmail Hauberk seem to glint triumphantly in the sunlight. Made of steel rings, this tunic-length hauberk features a traditional 4-in-1 weave. A 4-in-1 pattern consists of four chainmail rings woven through another ring. This hauberk has sleeves that fall two thirds of the way down the arm. Also, the hauberk ends about mid-thigh on most wearers. Zinc galvanization grants this armour piece its silver tone while protecting it from rust. The rings are butted together throughout, then reinforced with riveting at the arm pits. Wear this chainmail hauberk over a padded gambeson to get the look shown along with superior safety and comfort. Adding a belt at the waist, as pictured, will also help distribute the weight of the armour piece. An essential asset to any heavily armoured knightly looks, the John Steel Chainmail Hauberk is ideal for medieval or fantasy LARP and costume use.

Please be aware that this armour is handmade, and it can be thicker than listed here. As such, it is intended mainly for costuming, light reenactment, and LARP.

  1. Brent T.

    It’s nice and long (about knee length and middle forearm for a 6ft guy) and even has beefed up rivets in the armpit area to prevent too much strain on the links when trying to put it on or holding it. Only downside is that some links came already broken or missing in the armpit area when I received it but nothing a little self linking cant fix. It’s a solid 30+ pounds and the head hole just fits my noggin which might be a problem for the larger cranial people if they don’t want to remove some links for a better fit. Overall super satisfied with the product. Delivered super quick and even came in a bag so it doesn’t sit out and exposed.
