We tested a hardened steel bolted trinity weave maille sent to us by viewer as well as gambeson, silver soldered maille and 14 gauge heavy butted maille against a 70 pound draw bow with bodkin here are the results!

Can you share more information on the maille?. Pictures and manufacture info? I see a lot of videos like this as entertainment, albeit the targets and weapons are sometimes put into context.

There are a lot of threads on arrows vs armour and the following proved to be a lengthy disussion.

Yeah, I think we need explanation on what 'Bolted Trinity Weave' is Big Grin

Looks like you have tons of fun in any case, seems that even butted non-historical mail provides surprising amount of protection with thick padding.
