Maille coif with vertical ventail

Inexpensive 12th century Crusader style maille (chain mail) coif with leather-laced ventail to protect the mouth and chin. Butted maille has limited historical precedent but is fine for historical costuming and reenactment where strict construction authenticity is not a requirement. This is the most economical construction style of maille, as the cost of labor-intensive riveting is avoided. Looks great, but is not recommended for weapons-contact reenactment. You'll spot a lot of these coifs worn in the film "Arn: The Knight Templar". Weight is about 8 lbs.
