Early Medieval Scandinavian coats were precisely described in “Viking Clothing” by Thor Ewing, which quote on many sources from Nordic sagas and stories of X-century traveller Ibn Fadlan. Ewing mentions various kinds of coats mutually different in size and shape, but coats made of a rectangle (Feldr) are mentioned the most. Due to the time elapsed since the days of the vikings, very few sources remained until today. A majority of clothes for reconstruction, apart from a few cases, is a speculation of archaeologist about the look of early-medieval costumes.
