At one point in history, well-made chainmail armor could mean the difference between life and death. While the stakes may not be as high for you at your next reenactment, this shirt will make a difference in terms of authenticity. This mail shirt protects the upper body during battle without restricting movement. It is crafted from 16 gauge mild steel with a black finish. The rings have an inner diameter of 9.5 inches. The rings form a 4-in-1 pattern that consists of four chainmail rings woven through another ring. Butted mail is the most economical construction style of mail and has limited historical precedent. It is fine for general costuming and roleplaying use, but is not recommended for weapons-contact reenactment. Give your costume a boost of authenticity with this Large Black Chainmail Shirt.
