The medieval chainmail coif(hood) is made of hundreds of rings in the medieval 4 in 1 pattern.
The chainmaille coif has an open front section to give you great visibility and drapes over the entire neck onto the shoulders. The chainmaille coif includes the aventail (neck cover) and thus covers the sides, back and front of the wearers head.
Our standard size coif has a forehead circumference of 26 inches. With an overall length of 18"-20" and bottom edge circumference of 56", it fits almost everyone. The chainmail rings have a 9 millimeter inner diameter (just under 3/8") and are made with 16 gauge wire.
About our Chainmail
All chainmail is not the same! We offer a high quality anodized aluminum chainmail with alternating flat riveted design. The old saying that "you get what you pay for" is certainly true when it comes
to chainmail. When comparing our chainmail to other suppliers, please look for these features:
- Anodized Aluminum Construction - Our chainmail is made of anodized aluminum. Steel chainmail is very heavy. Aluminum chainmail is about one third the weight of steel chainmail.
Steel chainmail is prone to rust and requires a lot of care to keep it rust free. Aluminum chainmail does not rust. The two major drawbacks of aluminum are a tendency to corrode and it is weaker than steel, however, we offer
anodized aluminum. Anodization is a chemical process that makes the aluminum corrosion resistance and increases the strength of the aluminum. Many buildings are contructed of annodized aluminum.
- Flat Ring Design with Alternating Riveted Rings - There are many different styles of chainmail. We offer one of the most durable robust styles of chainmail. Our design consists
of solid flat rings(like a flat donut) joined by alternating rings that riveted together. This creates an exceptionally strong chainmail mesh
