’Get up.’ That’s what you hear as you lay on the battlefield, eyes cast to the sky and the blood and gore seeping into your rusting Alaric Chainmail Hood. You are pretty sure you know that voice, a gentle and soothing feeling washing over you at its sound. You recognize your deity, and while you’d been dead, those powerful words somehow give you a second wind.

The fighting continues around you as you stand, fingers scrambling for your lost sword in the mud. You are refreshed and ready for round two.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's 2nd Quality Alaric Chainmail Hood is a flexible mail armour coif made from linked steel rings. The mail covers the head, neck and shoulders. Each butted ring interlocks with four other rings in a 4-in-1 design.

The Alaric Chainmail is mail great for heavy medieval infantry and sergeants, as well as early knights. Wear it over one of our undercaps and add a Crusader, Norman or Spangen helmet on top for the most comfort and authentic wear. Pair this armour with additional Epic Armoury metal works and clothing to fit your character’s needs.

2nd Quality products are shipped “as is.” Colours and aesthetics may vary, but you can still expect each product to uphold our high standard for usability and safety. This particular Alaric Chainmail Hood has a stripe of rusted chain, which you can see in the photos to get the best idea of what to expect. This rust can be minimized with some good elbow grease and oil to increase its wearability.

    p>Epic Armoury metal works products should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage. All our metal armours contain leather parts that need regular maintenance using leather-care products to keep the leather from drying out.

    Cleaning

    If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.

    After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

    Rust-Prevention and Removal

    Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.

    Leather Straps and Fittings

    Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

    You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
