Chainmail Coifs

A chainmail coif is a traditional type of head covering that when, worn, protects the almost all angles of the head, as well as the neck and the shoulders. Only the face is left uncovered. Obviously, the head is an important part of the anatomy, which is why Dark Knight Armoury offers such a variety of chainmail coifs. Anything but simple armor, we offer a number of coifs, all of which feature different options which ensure that we have the head protection that will adequately defend your cranium. Like almost all of our chainmail armor, our coifs are available in multiple linkage types, including butted, riveted, and flattened. They are also available in several different types of materials. Ranging from steel to aluminum, the material your coif is made from will help determine how functional it truly is. A chainmail coif can be worn alone, or it can be combined with a helmet to provide a double dose of protection. If you are a knight, fighter, or warrior who understands that to lose your head is to lose the battle - literally, in this case - then do not ride into battle with the protection of one of our chainmail coifs.
