From the weakest to the strongest - the order is as follows:

It is possible to obtain chainmail armor via an inventory editor. Parts of armor can also be found inside blacksmith and dungeon chests.

Leggings = 7 ingots/pieces
Boots = 4 ingots/pieces
- In the PC and the Console editions of Minecraft, Chainmail Armor can be crafted from unobtainable Fire Blocks (which have to be hacked or modded into the game), providing armor that is slightly stronger than gold or leather, but you can obtain chainmail armor by trading with villagers.
- Leather aromor is the only armor that can be dyed.
