The Roman Lorica Hamata is directly inspired by Celtic design as the Celts are the people that have been credited for the invention of chainmail. The Lorica Hamata that we decided to reconstruct here still keeps a lot of its Celtic original traits making it perfectly suitable equipment for Roman or Celtic cavalrymen or even legionary of Caesar during the Gallic wars or any similar legionary fighting of Hannibal’s armies during the Punic Wars.
It is intricately HANDMADE from butted 16 gauge mild steel rings, each with a diameter of approx. 10 mm. The ornate PURE SOLID BRASS adornments are the most attractive feature of this historical mail armour that also holds the two shoulder ring plates in place. It is this feature of being butted that makes it affordable and hence, popular in LARP, Renaissance fair and other medieval events.
