Armor made from small metal rings linked together into a mesh. Also known as simply "mail" or "maille."
European garments made with mail are leggings (chausses), mail hoods (coif) and mail mittens (mitons). A mail collar hanging from a helmet is camail or aventail. A mail collar worn strapped around the neck was called a pixane or standard. A shirt made from mail is a hauberk if knee-length and a haubergeon if mid-thigh length.
Japanese chainmail is called kusari (鎖, lit. "chain") and was used extensively alongside the more distinctive and better known lamellar armors.
