The Knights Templar was a powerful Christian military order during the time of the Crusades. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. As skilled fighter s they would have been outfitted with chainmail just like our Legendary Knights Chainmail Haubergeon with Templar Cross Ex-Large. Mail (chainmail, maille) is a type of armor consisting of small metal rings linked together in a pattern to form a mesh. A haubergeon is a chainmail that is smaller or shorter than a hauberk usually refered to a ?little Hauberk?. This particular half sleeved haubergeon is made with blacked rings in the middle creating a Teplar cross and the bottom having a triangular shaped fringe. This maile can be used for competitions, training, LARP, Renaissance fairs, and costumes. ?A Templar Knight is truly a fearless knight, and secure on every side, for his soul is protected by the armor of faith, just as his body is protected by the armor of steel. He is thus doubly armed, and need fear neither demons nor men." Bernard de Clairvaux, c. 1135. Model is wearing size Large. 6?0? (175 cm) tall. Weighing 170 lbs. Chest: 39?. Waist 34?. Hips: 41?.
