Called upon to defend your realm, you place the Richard Blackened Chainmail Coif over your padded arming cap and prepare for the battle of your life. This steel chainmail coif has been chemically treated for its darkened look. This treatment also helps protect the armour from rusting, though occasional oiling is required to maintain its quality. Covering the head, neck, and shoulders, the butted steel rings that make up this chainmail coif are woven together in a traditional 4-in-1 pattern. A 4-in-1 pattern consists of four chainmail rings woven through another ring. A wide opening at the front leaves the face uncovered for unobstructed vision and ventilation. Whether worn as the top piece of your armour costume or underneath a helmet, this blackened steel coif adds a comprehensive coverage to your medieval outfit and an additional level of head protection to LARP ensembles.

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.

    I ordered this coif about a month ago, and it is a high quality chainmail piece for the price. It was drenched in oil when it arrived, but that is to keep them metal from rusting, so no problems other than that. I still haven’t cleaned off all of the oil off the coif yet, but it’ll come off eventually.
