DFDS Mail Leggings - Dome Riveted - Stainless Steel Flat Rings - Close Out
 


Construction: Dome Riveted
Ring Type: Flat Rings
Material: Stainless Steel
Ring Size: 9mm - 18 gauge
Finish: Darkened

Please Make a Selection:



These mail leggings (chausses) are crafted from flat rings of stainless steel that have been dome riveted and then darkened for a finish.

Please Note: Even though the rings are stainless, we cannot guarantee that the ring rivets are stainless.


Please Note: The tools used to rivet these stainless mail rings often flake bits of mild steel onto the rings - these flake-offs often rust, giving some of the mail a rusted appearance. These can be buffed off with minor effort.


It was very important to protect the legs of a warrior in any age when mail was a predominant form of armor. Chainmail may be good protection, but until the advent of plate most combatants opted to still use a shield as their first defense. Large shields often forced opponents to target the legs; evidence for this comes from mass graves from medieval battlefields, where a high proportion of wounds were dealt to the lower legs, followed by a strike to the head. Neglecting the legs, and in particular the shins, would not have been wise in such a fighting environment.

The need to protect the legs was especially important for cavalrymen when fighting infantry - the legs would be a stand-out, eye-level target for men on foot, thus making it essential to protect them.
