Medieval chainmail crafter by 

Prior to this time, chain mail was the most prevalent and effective type of body armament. Maile weighed about the same as full body plate style. The average weight was about 45 – 55 pounds. It was always worn with padding and protective clothing to further protect and insulate from the heat and cold.

I submit this capture as a follow up in the fun chat we had about pull rings earlier on Redbubble.

“Patjila..of course they had soda cans! It was from the earlier pull tabs that they fashioned their suits of mail O=O=O=O see? :)” A whole new world opened to me :))
