This Chain Mail Shirt and Coif Set is perfect for Renaissance Fairs, various cons, and D&D tournaments.

Now, I’m going to tell you up front, this is NOT combat quality chain mail. This armor will not take it if you start going at each other with swords. (Though, if you do and everyone survives, I’d love to see the video.)

If you want real chain mail made by a real armorer, go to the nearest renaissance fair, or a website like ArmorVenue.com and be ready to pay big bucks.

However, if you just want a costume for Renaissance Fair or Halloween, why spend $600+ for something you’re going to wear 3 times a year, max? That’s where this Chain Mail Shirt and Coif Set Set comes in.

It's dangerous to go alone, even if you're properly armored. Take this...

Made from Zinc plated steel for corrosion resistance, the chain mail shirt is sized to fit people up to about 6′ 4″ with chests up to 48″ in circumference. If you get much larger than that, it might be a bit tight. As you can imagine, the steel doesn’t have a lot of give in it. The rings are each made from 18 gauge steel and about 1/4″ in diameter and neatly interlock.

The coif is made from the same type of steel rings and will fit most adults.

The wearing of chain mail dates back (as least) as far as the 4th century BC so, it’s been around for a while. This particular type of chain mail armor was in use from the early 1300’s to about the mid to late 1500’s.

Finally, if you’re going to wear this as a costume, you may want to get a good, padded, shirt and cap. If you don’t you may find that it chafes a bit.

And by a bit, I mean a lot.
