Medieval protection for the head used mainly from the 11th to the beginning of the 14th century. It consisted of a close-fitting mail hood extending down to cover the neck and parts of the shoulders, occasionally attached to the hauberk. The mail coif was made in the same manner at the mail hauberk or shirt. Often worn over a padded coif and under a helmet, however, in numerous medieval illuminated manuscripts, knights and soldiers are shown with just the mail coif protecting the head. The coif is made using the European 4 in 1 pattern of butted links.
A chainmail coif is a traditional type of head covering that when worn, protects the almost all angles of the head, as well as the neck and the shoulders; only the face is left uncovered.
Obviously, the head is an important part of the anatomy, which is why we offer such a variety of chainmail coifs. Anything but simple armor, we offer a number of coifs, all of which feature different options which ensure that we have the head protection that will adequately defend your cranium.
A chainmail coif can be worn alone, or it can be combined with a helmet to provide a double dose of protection. If you're a knight, fighter, or warrior who understands that to lose one's head is to lose the battle literally, in this case then don't ride into battle with the protection of one of our chainmail coifs.
