Most men-at-arms used to sew mail sleeves to their arming doublet to reinforce the weak spot of the armour. This solution was offering good protection while being far lighter than wearing a full haubergeon under the armour.
Notes: The use of these additional protections is highly recommended if you wish to practice jousting, competitive “Pas d’Armes” or battle reenactement.
Our mail sleeves are made of properly riveted mail like all real medieval originals. Their light and strong 9mm 18G round rings alternated with solid flat rings make them ideal for competitive fighting and tournaments.
Weight : 4kg for a M/L size and 5kg for the XL/XXL size
