For characters ranging from nefarious knights to noble warriors, the Richard Blackened Chainmail Hauberk provides phenomenal protection and coverage. Traditionally woven steel rings make up its long sleeved, knee length style. It has a 4-in-1 traditional weave. A 4-in-1 pattern consists of four chainmail rings woven through another ring. This chainmail tunic has been given an acidic treatment that helps protect its steel rings from rusting and creates its distinct, dark metal look. Wear it over a padded gambeson, as shown, for best comfort and safety. An essential asset to many heavy armour looks, this medieval hauberk suits a wide variety of personas and works great for costume events and LARP gatherings. The belt shown is not included, but wearing a belt can help redistribute the weight of this heavy chainmail piece. When suiting up for your next medieval or fantasy adventure, the Richard Blackened Chainmail Hauberk grants both style and defense to your armoured warrior ensemble.
