Review of: Roman Troopers Helmet
I am completely satisfied with this helmet, which goes perfectly with the Roman Lorica Segmentata in my collection.

Review of: Corinthian Helmet
There are only a few good Corinthian-style helmet reproductions out there: this is one of them. I have seen real Corinthian helmets--- they have hauntingly graceful lines.
Many wearable reproductions are crude and unsatisfying, and most of the better ones are too small. The pretty-looking reproductions from Greece are heavy cast bronze: unwearable and inauthentic.
This one is large enough to fit a size-8 head, and has that certain look around the eye holes that the best examples from antiquity possessed. It is serviceable steel, but light and wearable. I might face blows in this one, whereas my other delicately realistic brass one seems better only for display.

Review of: Visored Bascinet
Very nice quality helmet, fits perfectly with the MRL helmet liner and the MRL maille coif. With this helmet what you see is what you get. It's sturdy, battle ready, and with a little practice you can open and close the visor quickly. Also when up, the visor stays up, if not, pull the visor up and give it a very delicate twist. Remember you can buy a padding kit if you really need to adjust the helmet. Adjust the helmet to where your eyes are even with the eye slits for best visibility. Remember, however, the closer the faceplate is to your face, the more likely you would be to suffer facial damage, especially your nose. But this was the norm at that time. Mis-shapen noses were a badge of honor as everyone knew you were a tourney jouster, man-at-arms, etc. All around a great helmet!!! No kiddie costume junk here!!! The real deal.

Review of: Arming Cap, Quilted
Great arming cap. I wear it under my MRL Mail Coif and my MRL Visored Bascinet. Now the Arming Cap itself is a touch on the thin side, BUT if it were any thicker whatsoever my mail and helmet would be too tight. As of now they all fit perfect!! Not just trying to get reward points here. This arming cap is well put together and made to last, and mine has seen plenty of Renaissance Faires! Grab one, you won’t regret it 👍😊

Review of: Helmet of Castile
I flipped out when I first saw this helm in the Museum Replicas catalog and had to have it! When i got it it was heavier than expected. But it is magnificent! I wear this with my Knights Templar tunics and it has made me feel more like a lord, rather than just a knight. I display it in my library on a stand, when I am not wearing it.

Review of: Death Dealer Collector’s Edition Helmet
Helmet is well made and can be worn with the adjustable leather lining. It is metal so it is not light which I find a plus. It may not be an exact copy of Frazetta's drawing of the death dealer but it is a fine representation of the helmet. I have a mannequin that I change armor on periodically and he looks quite fearsome with this helmet and the axe. I place led eyes behind the helmet and it really looks good.

Review of: Norman Spangenhelm
This helmet is the best one you have offered for this time period. I would have preferred a better lining and chin strap but overall a very well constructed offering by your company. Well worth the price.

Review of: Visored Bascinet
Love the inner lining and solid feel. This is a worthy addition to the collection. Be sure to add an arming cap for protection. Your hair will appreciate it, especially with a coif.
