AFTERSHOCK: it's SCA, not SGA. scadians are on the geek hierarchy chart and they usually make their own armor, some of which better than what is displayed on that site.
a lot of sca folk were employed in the making of armor for LOTR. my friend`s dad was one of them.

Chain hauberks have a conventional use, as well, for motorcyclists. I heard of someone who made his own chain mail, and took to wearing it (along with proper leather gear) when he rode his bike.
He wiped out at some point, skidded quite some distance down the road, and only suffered "road burn" on his legs, since he only had leather protection there.
Besides, who could resist turning a few heads by wearing steel armor? :)
