A short top of a chain mail shirt, with full sleeves and a rectangular back neckline.
The RM chain maille type is composed of small rings with an inner diameter of 6 mm only. As per original finds, it is woven with alternate rows of riveted round rings (domed rivet heads) and punched flat rings. Both then and now, the extremely small inner ring diameter has made it possible to manufacture this particular chain mail out of 1 mm steel without impairing its effectiveness, and thereby to achieve a weight reduction of about 30 - 35%.
The common abbreviation for this particular weave is RM (Roman Mail), as it was favoured by the ancient Celts and Romans ( called Lorica Hamata). However, it remained in use throughout the ages and was commonly worn up to the late Middle Ages.
