DFDS Chainmail Roman Lorica Hamata - Stainless Steel Dome Riveted Flat Rings

Construction: Dome Riveted
Ring Type: Flat Rings
Material: Stainless Steel
Ring Size: 9mm - 18 gauge
Finish: Darkened

Please Make a Selection:

This Roman Lorica Hamata chainmail tunic is crafted from dome-riveted flat rings of stainless steel - the rings are darkened for an antiqued and more authentic appearance. The individual rings are 18 gauge in thickness and 9 mm in diameter.

The shoulder doublet panels are lined with stitched leather; the chest hook which holds them into place is cast from brass.

The Roman Lorica Hamata had some advantages over the plate bands of the Lorica Segmentata; the Hamata could be constructed relatively easily - most of those created in Imperial Rome were probably created with slave labor in the state-run armories. This ease of manufacture also meant that any soldier, both Legionary and Auxiliary, could field-repair his Hamata while on campaign, perhaps even with mail links looted from dispatched enemies.

While the Segmentata had protective advantages over Hamata when it came to deflecting arrows, slings and piercing weapons, it required a relatively skilled smith to create strong steel bands to create or repair the Segmentata. It is unknown exactly why Hamata, which co-existed with Segmentata, came to replace it entirely by the 4th Century.

IMPORTANT SIZING TIP: To accurately measure whether you will comfortably fit into this coat of mail it is necessary to first wear the clothing or padded gambeson that you intend to wear beneath the chainmail. Then measure your chest size over these additional layers. This way the additional width of your chest with these accumulated layers is accounted for when determining if the mail will fit properly.
