The ancient Greeks wore helmets of thick leather and bronze to protect their heads from swords and arrows. Over time helmets evolved to protect the face and neck, sometimes covering the entire head with only eye slits for visibility. By 1400 this sophisticated armor featured pivots and hinges for greater mobility and protection.

Review of: Hounskull Bascinet

Good Lord do I like this!  This helmet fits very well right out of the box and isn't so danged heavy you can't move your head!  The only issue is the the pins that hold the visor on can come out of the hinge and fall off when you are taking the hemlet off or moving it around.  I will probably drill a hole on the end and attach a chain or strap to keep them from getting lost!  Well made helmet and it looks great!!!  Having the integrated liner is a big plus!!

Review of: Tudor 16th Century Armet

This is the best helmet I’ve personally seen at this price point. I have been collecting replica armour for 30 plus years and have seen a lot of bad stuff. Pleasantly surprised by this.
As far as size the neck is tight for me but I am 6’3” 240 18.5” neck

Review of: Hounskull Bascinet

I just got this helmet yesterday, and true enough it’s a great buy. This fits extremely well and looks amazing.
While it’s true the visor doesn’t lift completely it still moves easily and comes with strapping to secure it around the back of the head. It’s also easy to see out of and came padded.
Overall, this is a great helmet for anyone. I highly recommend this hounskull as your next gear find.

Review of: Hounskull Bascinet

So this is not my first helm from MRL.  Want to change up my look a little for the fairs.  This one runs a little tighter then my first.  But still very wearable.  The visor does not even come close to lifting up enough to get it out of your way.  But that is about the only draw back.  worth every penny.

This helmet is really well done. The visor can't be held up all the way but it looks good.

Review of: Tudor 16th Century Armet

This helmet came covered in oil (thats a good thing) It's very sturdy and smooth, the adjustment was very well ranged, got it to fit perfectly, the weight is far better than armet or closed helm I've ever seen. Love it, will be looking for more props here!

Review of: Spanish Morion Helmet

Really good helmet.  It's appropriately heavy, but very wearable.  The internal suspension feels comfortable and sturdy, and helps me appreciate the knowledge that went into building these things.  Also, I'm sort of an idjit: I was just thinking, "This thing needs a chin strap," but then I found it tucked into the lining.  Functional for experiments and budget reenactors.  Great for display.

Review of: The Norseman Helmet

I did not know what to expect when I ordered this  Norseman Helmet. I wanted it to be the centerpiece on a beautiful antique desk I finished and was hoping that it would fit the part. When it arrived I opened it and could say nothing but WOW. Heavy duty, beautiful detail, solid metal construction... you will not be disappointed!!!.

The Norseman Helmet I received was a beautiful, solid, high-quality piece of armor that I am now most proud to own.  I makes for a splendid display item and is also most functional.
