These shirts are constructed using a combination of flat rings with wedge rivets and solid punched flat rings, European 4-1 weave and with an internal diameter of 9mm.
Compared to the same style in round riveted, there is a weight saving of up to a kilo, so for those where every ounce counts, such as on horseback, the wedge riveted is well worth a look.
The wedge rivetes are generally thought to be a later development in the transiition of maille and seem to appear from the C11th. Although much slower to construct than the round rivet, the wedge maille does have the advantage of a smooth finish on the inside with only a very small raised section where the rivet is.
Like all of our maille, in terms of total weight it is comparable to original items, although lightweight compared to other products on the market. It is also very strong.
Overall, it is perfect for staying ahead on the battlefield when those around you are in need of a lie down.
Our Authentic style Blackened look, with wear over time, dulls down to a grey finish which is comparable to some examples of original maille.
All our maille shirts have a brass armourers ring attached in the front, similar to original examples. This unique yet small addition can be a great talking point for members of the public.
Note: all sizes at full stretch armpit to armpit and external measurement. - If you are unsure of what size, hold tape measure in a loop of either 48"(121cm), 54"(137cm) 60"(152cm) or 66"(167cm). Then with your normal padding on, see which "loop" you can easily slip over your arms and shoulders.
