A chain mail 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 chain mail 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 chain mail 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 chain mail 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 chain mail coifs.
A chainmail coif is an essential piece of any medieval knight ensemble, and our Riveted Aluminum Chainmail Coif makes a great option for fulfilling that need. The mail hood offers protection to the head, neck, and shoulders.

A chainmail coif serves two purposes, offering extra protection in battle and acting as a buffer between the knight and his plate armor. The Titanium chainmail coif protects your head from almost every angle.
The Titanium Mail Standard provides added protection for the upper chest and throat. A standard, also known as a Bishops Mantle after the covering that was worn my medieval clergy, drapes over the shoulders.
