Chainmail, or maille armour, as it was called in the earlier years of its use, is one of the oldest styles of metal armour in use. Traditionally, it consisted of small rings all linked together in a distinctive pattern that afforded a great degree of protection. Roman chainmail was a common enough armor in its day, being favored by both experienced soldiers and new recruits for its lightness (in comparison to heavier, plated armours), as well as its ease of acquisition. And medieval chainmail was so effective that it remained a common armour for centuries! Here, we offer a wide assortment of different mail armours, ranging from light-weight chainmail armours for show to functional chainmail that's fit for use in battle. And of course, we don't just offer chainmail shirts or chainmail hauberks for protecting only the chest, but a wide assortment of pieces for protecting virtually any part of the body! That's right, we offer chainmail gauntlets, which will keep your hands safe, and we offer chainmail chauses and chainmail leggings to keep your legs healthy and whole! And in addition to typical chainmail hauberks and chainmail shirts, we even have a few chainmail vests, to help reduce weight while still affording a good degree of protection. When you're looking for just the right piece of chainmail armour to protect you in a fight, make sure you look to Medieval Armour to provide you with just the piece of functional mail armour that you need.

Chainmail coifs and mittens are all well and good for added protection, but what a warrior really needs is a good suit of chainmail to keep him protected in battle. And at Medieval Armour, we offer a number of good chainmail hauberks and chainmail shirts, all designed to keep you perfectly protected and make you look like an authentic medieval warrior. We offer a number of great chainmail hauberks, made in a variety of different ways to provide a bevy of choices to the warrior in need of armor. Called maille in the ancient days, our chainmail armour is made in several different ways, ranging from the shape of the rings used in the mail to how the rings in the chainmail are closed. For instance, in our riveted chainmail, the rings are closed via rivets, which provide an added touch of protection, while increasing the mail armour's weight, where-as our butted chainmail simply butts the ends of the rings together. Another example is that our flattened chainmail features mail rings that have flat sides, while rounded chainmail features (you guessed it) mail rings that are completely round. We also offer a number of chainmail shirts, which are traditionally shorter than a hauberk and thus, weigh less. We even offer blackened steel chainmail to provide for that incredible and intimidating look that only dark armour can give! And for those warriors who want the authentic look without the need for actual battle protection, we have aluminum chainmail shirts, too, which are perfectly suited for stage productions and show! If you're looking for chainmail armour, whether you want a functional chainmail hauberk for battle or a lightweight chainmail shirt for show, then Medieval Armour is just the place where you want to be, so take a few moments to browse our Chainmail Hauberks, Chainmail Shirts, and Maille Hauberks until you find exactly what you need!

A good warrior never underestimates the importance of an equally good pair of chainmail gloves. More than his weapons, a warrior's hands are his trade, and every warrior should protect their hands as they would protect their lives. That's why Medieval Armour offers a wide assortment of chainmail gauntlets that are perfect for protecting a warrior's hands. Many of our steel chainmail gloves are battle tested and ready to go, providing all the protection that chainmail armour should when subjected to the rigors of combat. Like the medieval armour used by warriors of antiquity, these pieces of chainmail hand armour are made utilizing many of the same patterns and designs that were prevalent in history. That means that our chainmail gloves and our chainmail mittens are typically either butted chainmail, where the ring ends simply butt up against one another, or riveted chainmail, where the ring ends are riveted together for added strength. If you're heading into battle any time soon, a good pair of chainmail gauntlets is an absolute must-have that will keep your hands safe and secure, while allowing you to keep fighting the good fight. And when you're wearing mail gauntlets from Medieval Armour and you shrug off a blow to your hands and keep on fighting, then that means that we've done our job and done it well in providing you with adequate and effective hand protection.
