So why Chainmail?
Chainmail really shines against slashing blows. It would take an extraordinarily heavy blow from a very sharp sword to cut mail with a slashing attack.
For thousands of years various styles of armour have played an important role in decisive battles in our world's history. Armour literally means "a protective covering". Today this can refer to such things as Kevlar body armour, a hockey helmet, or even the heavy steel plates that blanket most modern assault vehicles.
Moreover since the impact of the slash would be redistributed, being hit in this manner whilst wearing mail would have little or no effect.
Certain weaves such as the ones we use in our heavier armor can protect against piercing blows as well.
Mail is also effective overall because it protects against having one's skin broken, and minimizing the penetration of the object thus reducing the damage to the wearer.
