Does this leg armour fit?
When you don't wear extra padding: Measure the width of your leg.
When you wear padding: Add 2,5 cm to your leg width.
When you wear chainmail chausses: Add 0,5 cm to your leg width.
Tip: Is this armour too big for you? You can easily add extra padding.
How do I easily measure the width of my arm/leg?
Place your arm/leg between two straight objects (e.g. books). Measure the distance between both objects, this equals the width of your arm or leg.
Attaching armour & chainmail
To attach your armour or chainmail securely, you can attach leather laces to your gambeson and fasten these to your armour / chainmail. The armour thus remains in position during a fight.
Maintenance & care
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your armour regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper.
