The coif is well sized and covers the shoulders. It has an authentic square facial sector.
This coif also has a triangular ventail which can be folded down.
The ventail is padded from the inside and covered with leather and can be fixed with a leather lace.
This kind of coif was common during the high medieval period, e.g. worn by Normans and Crusaders.
Made from round, 1.6 mm thick spring steel rings with an internal diameter of just 8 mm this fabric offers much more strength and protection than the regular butted mild steel chain mail. The netting is 4 in 1, the typical European weave.
We call this maille type BTW (Butted Tensile Wire).
Due to it's excellent value for a fair price, BTW-maille is perfect for beginning re-enactors looking for good protection and solid quality.
The natural finish allow rust but provides an authentic look.
