This chainmail coif is based on originals from the (early) Middle Ages, seen on medieval works of art like illuminated manuscripts. The hood is made of butted round chainmail rings. The rings are 17 gauge thick and have a diameter of 5 mm. Because the rings are so small, they offer an excellent protection in reenactment battles. Perfect for Viking reenactment & medieval reenactment.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
Maintenance & care
Remove rust from your chainmail by rubbing the rings together (just like when hand-washing clothes, but without water). The rings will grind together and the rust will come off.
Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.
