Brief Chain Mail Armor History 

Chain mail was first used around 700 AD where early Norman and Saxon armies protected themselves in combat with this prized commodity. During that time, the hood or coif was widely used. By 1100 primarily all armor was maille. The full length shirt is called a hauberk and was normally long sleeve and ankle length. The bernie is shorter and normally has half sleeves. It  was slow phased out in favor of plate armor by the mid 1400's. Link armor was still extensively used however throughout medieval Europe until the middle 1600's. This was a true testament to the genius of the design.

Few inventions or pieces of technology have had a life span of a thousand years.
