These mail chausses/hoses are directly inspired by the type of protection worn by the knights and some sergeants in the 12th and 13th centuries. They appear for the first time on William ‘the conquerer’ on the Bayeux Tapestry in 1066. By that time it was a luxury and that’s not a hazard if only Duke William himself is wearing those chainmail hoses and many of the other Norman knights were not. By the opening of the 12 and 13 centuries, it was becoming standard equipment of a medieval knight perfectly completing the long sleeves knee length hauberk making the knight almost invulnerable.
The 16 gauge butted SPRING STEEL rings (9 mm diameter each) are stronger than the regular mild steel butted rings ensuring that your chausses will be long-lasting equipment, battle after battle. If you’re looking for even more strength, go for our riveted collection. It comes in a single size that fits most.
