Chainmail Hoody

14 Jan 2010
Progress: Design Stages

I've always wanted to make something out of chainmail. And what better item of protection than a hoody?

Instead of the tight-fitting head protection of a coif, this would be loose-fitting and still offer maximum protection from CCTV cameras.

It would be impractically heavy and probably have a zip or buckles down the front.

It would be made entirely out of hand crafted rings, riveted (not butted). This would be months of work. Possibly years.

It's on the back burner for now, but I do entirely plan to see this to completion.
