RM Chainmail Leg Protection/Chausses, 6 mm inner ring diameter, riveted and punched

- very authentic and fully battle-ready -

Chainmail Chausses were used as leg protection in the late Middle Ages. They were usually worn in addition to the plate
armour, prevalent in those days. The body parts left uncovered by the plate armour would be protected with chain mail armour. Unlike
the comparatively stiff plate armour, the Chausses are notably more flexible and fit much better to the body shape.

The chainmail chausses from Ulfberth® are supplied in pairs. They are now available in almost all chain maille types. They can
be fastened as seen fit, e.g. with leather strings and/or leather straps (not included in delivery). They can also be sewn on
(leather)trousers.

The RM chain maille type
is composed of small rings with an inner diameter of 6 mm only. As per original finds, it is woven with alternate rows of riveted
round rings (domed rivet heads) and punched flat rings. Both then and now, the extremely small inner ring diameter has made it
possible to manufacture this particular chain mail out of 1 mm steel without impairing its effectiveness, and thereby to achieve a
weight reduction of about 30 - 35%.
The common abbreviation for this particular weave is RM (Roman Mail), as it was favoured by the ancient Celts and Romans
(Lorica Hamata). However, it remained in use throughout the ages and was commonly worn up to the late Middle Ages.
