Various stages of in “full kit”

I need a new mail shirt though because this one is about 18kg of all round riveted rings. Instead of having 4:1 solid.

Decided to put everything on because the on season is coming up and I need to see if I have to alter anything.

I found this at the Abbey tournament, unfortun…

I found this at the Abbey tournament, unfortunately $540 is way too much for a helmet right now.

Update on my helmet

For the last I dunno months I had a butted mail aventail on it to meet the requirements for combat stating that there must be “protection for the back of neck at least…” and it looked like this

Problem with butted mail like this is it catches on everything.

I ordered a mail aventail (probably designed for a bascinet helmet rather than a spangenhelm) and have spent the afternoon fixing up my helmet, adding this new aventail.

It’s 95% of the way done, now all I need to do is make a small brass hook for the nasal so I can lift up the front to fix it where I held it in the last picture.

This’ll give me the option to unhook it to have a drink instead of having to perform gymnastics to drink like other members do.

I didn’t want to wear a full coif with mail, I get a little claustrophobic and it’s way to hot in Australia to do that.
