For a strong melee brute, it is generally not that useful; a heavier armour such as plate armour or chain mail is preferable. However, for a hybrid-style character, it strikes a balance between not interfering with spells too much and providing some protection, and so it may be desirable for such characters. Even hybrids will want to upgrade to a swamp dragon scales whenever possible, which has more AC and rPois for the same encumbrance.
Ring mail is an item of armour whose historical existence is somewhat doubtful. It seems more likely that it is a Victorian misinterpretation of contemporary depictions of chain mail or scale mail, or that the rings were merely items of decoration.
