A magnificent reproduction of a chainmaille coif which was the principal head defense of the knights in the 11th, 12th and 13th centuries. The coif is constructed of 16 gauge in the “European” 4 in 1 pattern. The coif is full mantle and can be worn with or without a helmet. Outer link diameter of each link is about 7/16", inner link dia. is about 3/8".Chain mail was commonly worn over a quilted gambeson which prevented the body from being bruised when the mail was struck. This piece is zinc plated to prevent rust but we recommend keeping it oiled.
