This short-sleeved chainmail shirt is suitable for people with medium chest size. It is wide enough to carry a gambeson underneath. The sleeves cover about 2/3 of the arm, the length is about half of the thigh. We recommend this chainmail size for people with a chest circumference of 90cm to 125cm. The chain shirt can be worn on a gambeson and uses its maximum size of 140cm under the arms. The chain mail is completely riveted under the armpit, so that the rings do not give in even with strong movements. So it stays intact for a long time and you have fun with it.
The bare version is not galvanized and is supplied heavily oiled. Please remove the excess oil before first use. Un galvanized chain mail should be treated regularly with maintenance oil such as Ballistol.

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.
