John chain mail flat ring
The roman chain mail was called the Lorica Hamata. The oldest picture dates back to 168 BC and shows soldiers in this specific mail armour. Ever since the 1st century BC the double shoulder mail was eliminated and the shirt was shortened. The "classic" chain mail was born and spread all over Europe.
This flatened ring chain mail is made for men with a medium chest circumference. It is wide enough to be worn on top of a gambeson. It is made with short sleeves and reaches down to, approximately, the knees. The blank version is galvanized shiny (zincked), it is treated against rusting and will need only little caretaking. The oil finished needs more care with oil, or it will attract rust.
This chain mail fits best for wearers with a chest circumference of 90cm to 125cm.
