URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes the habergeon (or haubergeon) thusly:
An armoured short sleeved shirt that covers the shoulders, thorax, abdomen, hips, groin, and upper arms. Habergeons are always made of mail.
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by thekey) describes mail (armour) thusly:
Interlocking metal rings, usually half an inch or less in diameter. Mail may be butted, coiled or rivetted, these considerations are reflected by armour quality. While mail is a superb defence against edged weapons, and reasonable against the point, it does little to reduce force of a blow, and may be driven into its wearer's flesh. Because of this, leather or wool garments are usually worn underneath.
