Review of: Hounskull Bascinet

A very nice helmet, especially for the price. Solid construction, but a little tight getting it on the head, but once on sits very nicely on your head. Definitely a great buy.

First time buyer but am impressed with the company's communication, fast shipping and great product.
For a replica I was very satisfied with the construction and good quality for the price. Great reproduction for any man cave!
Will buy again...

Review of: Hounskull Bascinet

This helmet looks like it should cost twice as much, at least.  It is very well made and is correct in proportion.  Too often cheap bascinet helmets are not made to the correct proportion.  This looks to be based on the Churburg #16.  Though I think this helmet look better then the original since the original looks to have an ill fitting visor.  I am making aventail for this.  Only down side is visor cannot stay up. But that is fine.  I have an open faced bascinet  for that.

Review of: Padded Gambeson With Interchangeable Sleeves

This is a well-made, heavily constructed gambeson. Sizing is true; expands well with the buckles.  Not a costume, this is an excellent base layer for functional armor. Take time to break in for sure. I started by hand washing and thoroughly air drying to make things softer (especially the elbows of the long sleeves and the midsection for bending forward. High collar means an arming collar is unnecessary; coif and gorget fit over collar easily. Matches well with the padded arming cap also sold by MR.  The buckles are a bit finicky to fasten, as there is enough play for the buckle to slide through the leather loop on the fixed portion, but once buckled it is very secure. The best feature is the ability to convert from sleeve-less to short or long sleeves at will; if you can lace a shoe you can change this gambeson on the fly. Make no mistake, it's warm. In a southeastern summer renaissance festival I could tolerate long sleeves, short mail, surcoat and several pieces of plate but this may be daunting for the uninitiated. Cannot recommend highly enough for the price.

Review of: Hounskull Bascinet

I was really surprised when I got this especially for the price you pay. From what I remember, I read on my armory.com. This helmet weighs very close to those bascinets in the Wallace collection. I can put this on but I need some kind of arming cap because it sits a little low on my head so there’s plenty of space for an arming cap or coif. This really looks good and it’s worth the price.

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: 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.

Review of: Avenger Scale Gauntlets

Really like the look of the gauntlets.   With the way they are attached to the gloves you do loose some flexibility in the fingers.  But still very happy with them.

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