The battle has lasted for three long days and the blood from both sides runs knee deep. You are exhausted and are unsure how much longer you can last when you see a break in the front lines. The enemy is making a last desperate push.
You are caught in front of their wave, and you feel the awful force of an enemy sword slash across your throat. Your Alaric Chainmail Hood stops the blade from cutting, buying you the time to fight back and slay your foe.
Epic Armoury’s new Alaric Chainmail Hood is a flexible mail armour coif made from linked steel rings. The mail covers the head, neck and shoulders. Each butted ring interlocks with four other rings in a 4-in-1 design. Treated with Epic Armoury’s Dark Metal coat to prevent rust, you can expect this armour to last a long time as reenactment gear with proper metal care.
The Alaric Chainmail is mail great for heavy medieval infantry and sergeants, as well as early knights. Wear it over one of our undercaps and add a Crusader, Norman or Spangen helmet on top for the most comfort and authentic wear. Pair this armour with additional Epic Armoury metal works and clothing to fit your character’s needs.
