This chainmail skirt can be worn under all types of chestplate or armour parts. It can be combined well with leg armour.

This chainmail skirt can be worn independently or fastened to the gambeson so that you hardly feel the weight of the chainmail.

Maintenance & care
Remove rust from your chainmail by rubbing the rings together (just like when hand-washing clothes, but without water). The rings will grind together and the rust will come off.
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.
