When I have to wear a hauberk, I wear it like a t-shirt (well, a very heavy t-shirt XD) I don't find it particulary difficult to put it on and off...personally I think the worst thing after a battle is taking off the gambeson XD
Hey- we're getting a 12c Motte and Bailey with associated village build in the next couple of years- only about 4 hours away!! WOOT!! My friend who teaches WMA bought a buncha land, and is getting permits for the historical village in place, now! I'm so jazzed. Now, perhaps I'll get my proper period forge up and running!
