Hauberk

This hauberk, or as it is more commonly known chainmail tunic, is made from large flat steel links which in alternate rows are riveted and welded together creating a protective mesh over the wearers' body. Mail began to be used less with the advent of firearms in battle because. paired with their heaviness, mail was no use against the damage a bullet could inflict.
