RM Shoulder Doubling for Roman Chain Armour Lorica Hamata, with brass hooks and buttons and vegetable tanned leather border

The so-called Lorica Hamata was the typical chain armour of the Roman legionary. One of its particularly characteristic features was the shoulder doubling.

We hereby offer this shoulder doubling separately and thus enable you to convert our RM chainmails to a Roman legionary's chain armour.

The delivery includes the pictured buttons, hooks and rivets made of brass, as well as the sewed-on leather border. The leather is vegetable tanned.

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 riveted round rings (domed rivet heads) and punched flat rings. Both then and now, the extremely small inner ring diameter has made it possible to manufacture this particular chain mail out of 1 mm steel without impairing its effectiveness, and thereby to achieve a weight reduction of about 30 - 35%.
The common abbreviation for this particular weave is RM (Roman Mail), as it was favoured by the ancient Celts and Romans (Lorica Hamata). However, it remained in use throughout the ages and was commonly worn up to the late Middle Ages.

Details:
- Dimensions (length x width): approx. 55 x 55 cm when fully stretched
- Inner ring diameter: approx. 6 mm
- Ring thickness: approx. 1 mm
- Finish: natural (lightly oiled)
- Weight: approx. 1.5 kg
