Our chainmail haubergeon 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 chain mail 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.
A haubergeon is a mid-sleeve chain mail shirt that reaches to the thighs.
