The sound of chainmail worn by a thousand soldiers marching is like music to you. There is a thrum, like the blood moving in your veins, as though it was the tapiddy tap propelling you forward instead of your own two feet.
Your Chain Skirt shifts just slightly with every stride, a comfort due to its protection and the flexibility it affords you. This is the life of a soldier at its finest.
Epic Armoury's Chain Skirt is a flexible mail armour skirt made from linked steel rings. The mail covers the lower body from the waist to the thighs, and is hung from the shoulders by two strong leather straps. Each butted steel ring interlocks with four other rings in a 4-in-1 design, and the skirt is hemed in leather to ensure comfort around the waist and the groin.
The Chain Skirt is great for heavy medieval infantry and sergeants looking to had some armour that will not sacrifice range of movement. Wear it over one of our gambesons for the most comfort and authentic wear, securing it with the double strapped belt around the waist--a durable solution to compensate for the chainmail’s weight!--and adjusting the shoulder straps. Pair this armour with additional Epic Armoury metal works and clothing to fit your character’s needs.
