Formidable in spirit and skill, the young warrior dresses for war in the David Oiled Chainmail Hauberk. With its steel rings woven in a traditional 4-in-1 pattern, this chainmail shirt is designed for children and small adults. A 4-in-1 pattern consists of four chainmail rings woven through another ring. Untreated by chemicals but covered in protective oil, this armour piece features a short sleeve construction that works well for layering and complements many medieval and fantasy styles. The rings are butted together throughout, then reinforced with riveting at the arm pits. Occasional oiling is required to help the hauberk maintain its quality. Best when worn over a padded gambeson for safety and comfort, this steel hauberk can be further combined with plate armour and leather pieces to achieve a comprehensive warrior look. The David Oiled Chainmail Hauberk is great for adding authenticity to armored character costumes or lending extra coverage to a LARP ensemble.
