Roman Chainmail Coif 6mm i.d.Rings, Thickness 1mm, Square Face Opening, Weight 3kg
Our chain mail coif full mantle square faced is made from small rings of only 6 mm diameter. Following original models, it is woven with alternate rows of round, riveted rings with domed rivet heads and flat, punched rings. Due to the extremely small ring diameter this chainmail could (in antiquity as well as today) be made from 1mm steel, without losing any battle effectiveness. The wearer's comfort is increased through the weight reduction of approximately 30-35%.
We call this type of chain mail RM (Roman Mail). It was worn not only by the Kelts and Romans (Hamata), but was common throughout the late medieval period.
