Chainmail Hauberks

Historically, chainmail has been around for over 2,000 years. It was, and still is, a very effective form of armor that protects a body against harm in a variety of different circumstances. And for the modern day warrior seeking a historically accurate look, nothing looks better then one of Dark Knight Armourys fine chainmail hauberks, or chainmail shirts. A chainmail hauberk, or any type of chainmail for that matter, typically consists of several metallic rings that are carefully linked together to create a mesh of armor that is stronger than its individual parts. Old or new, the concept behind chainmail has remained the same for centuries. And our own chainmail hauberks have not deviated from this pattern. The only thing that differs is, perhaps, the method of manufacture. These chainmail hauberks are available in dozens of different combinations to ensure that every warrior can have the chainmail shirt that suits their needs. Short sleeved, long sleeved, sleeveless, butted, riveted, flattened, rounded are only a few of the options available. Additionally, our chainmail is made from various materials, including steel and aluminum. Different materials behave differently, though, so consider your use before you pick your material. Chainmail happens to look great when paired with other types of armor, serving to compliment leather or plate armor quite nicely, and a chainmail hauberk makes for a fantastic stand-alone armor as well. Steel chainmail works wonders for realism and reenactments, and aluminum chainmail is fantastic for a realistic look without an armored weight. Either way, a chainmail hauberk almost always compliments a warrior appearance.
