Weighing almost 4.5 Kilos, this is a large size, heavy duty, sixteen gauge helmet constructed in the early banded spangenhelm style. Most of the crown section is double layered with banding and plates, offering an impressive ten gauge (equivalent) protection in those sections. The aventail (chain mail curtain) provides facial and neck protection with minimal restriction of air flow, it even allows some downward vision through the mesh. Back in the day, an aventail was also an excellent defense against arrows, as it could catch the tip of the arrowhead, weakening its force by interfering with its trajectory. This helmet has an adjustable leather liner and chinstrap - offering great wearing comfort. As is clearly visible in the pictures, the ocularium sections are wide enough to ensure a good field of view. This helmet will accommodate up to a 62 cm head circumference; for those not endowed with such large craniums, an arming cap can also be worn underneath. Like all good armour, it's not stainless steel, so lightly coat the helmet with WD40 or non organic oil when not in use.
