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: Knights Templar Sugarloaf Helm

Visually spectacular, the Knights Templar Sugarloaf Helm is easily the most impressive helmet in my collection.  The antique-brass cross pate' enhances the inherently harmonious lines of the helm -- a real eye catcher!

Review of: Helmet of Castile

Love it.  I have the sugarloaf helm also and I wish that one had the chin strap that this one does.  fits well and securely.  I need to adjust the liner but I'm waiting until I have time to put it on over mail and arming cap to adjust the height and test the final fit.

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.
