inexpensive Lorica Hamata (Diameter 8mm, unrevited) in three sizes
The Lorica Hamata was the typical chainmail armour of the Roman legionnaire.
Delivery includes displayed shoulder-doubling (collar) made of the same fabric with a leather border, buttons and brass hooks. The leather has been vegetable-tanned.
These shirts are crafted with excellent manufacturing quality.
The RM chain maille type is composed of small rings with an inner diameter of 6 mm only. As per original finds, it is woven with alternate rows of rivetedround rings (domed rivet heads) and punched flat rings. Both then and now, the extremely small inner ring diameter has made itpossible to manufacture this particular chain mail out of 1 mm steel without impairing its effectiveness, and thereby to achieve aweight reduction of about 30 - 35%.
