This is my assistant Nick dressed up in modern steel chain mail (made for people who like to engage in historical reenactment and/or general mayhem). He's sitting on the turntable that we use for photographing samples around a complete circle: It takes twelve minutes to make one complete revolution and he did a good job of staying motionless the whole time. Watch the Spin video and wait for the loop to see how well he did.
This shirt is incredibly heavy: My kids put it on and then pretty much can't get up off the floor. It's hard to imagine how heavy a full set of armor must be.
