A full length hauberk from the mid 13th Century.

European riveted mail hauberk, manufactured of a close mesh of small riveted links with an equal outside dia. of 8.5-9.0 mm, a slightly flattened wire with a thickness of 0.9 mm and a width of 1.2 mm. A single link weighs 0.2122g. It is a long (85cm) and heavy with half length sleeves. The links are made of hardened steel.The weight of the whole shirt is 10.1 kg, (22lb), it is therefore constructed of more than 47,000 links. H8.

European riveted mail hauberk, he diameter of the links is 4-4.5 mm, the wire diameter is only 0.6 mm. The rivet is incredibly small, an area of 2*2 cm contains about 7*7=49 links, therefore a whole hauberk with the same surface would be constructed with an incredible 190.000 links, detailed view of the individual links.

European (Denmark) alternating solid and round riveted mail haubek, from Vimose, the oldest completely preserved mail from Northern Europe, over 20,000 small iron links that interlock much like a knitted sweater, approximately 10 kg, the shape is reminiscent of Roman mail from the 3th century AD, which was mainly used by the Germanic mercenaries (auxiliarerne), an integral part of the Roman army. In Scandinavia it was probably only leaders who wore the expensive and prestigious mail armor…
