    Generous Size – This will fit somebody with a large hat size (62) without an arming cap, or it will fit somebody with a regular hat size (57) with an arming cap.

    Battle Ready (14 gauge) - Helmets generally come in 4 different gauges: 20, 18, 16 and 14 (confusingly, the smaller the number, the thicker the metal). 20 gauge is ridiculously tinny, some helmets emanating from China have this gauge. 18 gauge is not historically inaccurate, as back in the day our ancestors had a preference for light equipment, but some re-enactors dislike this gauge because of its greater tendency to dent. 16 gauge is the most popular gauge for simulated combat (and is accordingly favoured by the SCA), it’s not too heavy, but it’s robust. It can be compared in weight to medieval tournament armour. 14 gauge is probably too heavy to be historically accurate but popular amongst re-enactors.

    Beautiful Adjustable Liner & Chinstrap - This helmet comes complete with a leather chinstrap and liner. With helms that enclose the entire head, chinstraps and liners are optional, but with regular helmets it’s best to ensure they're secure with a chinstrap. You can get away with not using a chinstrap on a regular helmet (construction workers do it all the time) but it has to be a very tight fit, which isn’t always convenient. Anyway, I am straying from the point… this helmet has the best chinstrap you will find on any medieval helmet on sale in Australia – me thinks. It’s leather (of course) and almost half a centimetre thick (3.5mm). Each strap is Y-shaped and attaches to two different points of the helmet – making it twice as strong as helmets that make a single connection on each side. This ensures less movement of the helmet and the preponderance of thick leather around the jawline adds to your protection. The buckle is solid brass and of an authentic medieval design too. The internal leather liner is comfortable, malleable and fully adjustable. Many competitors sell helmets with padded interiors (invariably made from modern materials). These padded interiors are not adjustable, so they will either fit, or they won't fit. Our laced interiors will fit you because they can be loosened or tightened to fine-tune the helmet to your requirements, which is very important when your eyes have to be level with a vision slit.
