I am planning on getting a mail shirt, likely a haubergeon, and I am wondering what your opinions/experiences are with mail bought off of eBay. Originally I was planning on ordering from KOA, but after seeing the prices of those listed on eBay I am reconsidering. Since most of the budget mail is Indian made, I would guess that the ones sold on KOA are made by some of the same people listing on ebay.

My main concern with buying off eBay is getting what I expect; many of the listings use the same pictures for different things. What are your thoughts on eBay mail? If anyone has purchased from there, what was the result?

I'm not looking for something strictly historically accurate, just something convincing enough.

Some examples:

And KOA for comparison

I appreciate any advice. Thank you
