Chain Mail (armor)

A type of armor consisting of small metal rings linked together to form a mesh that is worn like a shirt pulled over the top of the head. The lower part of the armor consists of leather or scale greaves that cover the shins and the top of the boot.

The armor requires the wearing of padded armor beneath the chain mesh, to prevent chafing and to provide armor for the back of the legs, which the mail does not cover.

Chain mail provides a +5 armor class adjustment (lowers armor class by 5 points). It is not as heavy as scale mail, which does not provide as good an armor class; chain mail is, however, more expensive.
