Stunning Brass Cross

A striking feature of the 13th Century Great Helm is the bold brass cross that adorns the front. Crafted from pure, solid brass, this cross is a symbol of faith and courage. The pointed arms of the cross serve a dual purpose, not only adding visual interest but also forming the eye slits of the helmet. This design allows for clear vision while maintaining the helmet’s structural integrity and historical accuracy.

Comfort and Ventilation

While the 13th Century Great Helm prioritizes protection, it doesn’t sacrifice comfort. Carefully placed ventilation slits beneath the brass cross ensure that you can breathe easily, even in the heat of battle. These slits allow air to circulate, keeping you cool and focused on the task at hand.

Secure and Adjustable Fit

Inside the helmet, you’ll find a plush padded liner that provides both comfort and customization. This liner adjusts the fit of the helmet, helping it stay securely in place during intense combat. A robust leather chin strap with a brass buckle further enhances the helmet’s stability, thus giving you the confidence to fight with all your might.

Versatile and Durable

The 13th Century Great Helm is a versatile piece of armor that can be used for a wide range of historical reenactment and costuming purposes. Its 16 gauge thickness makes it suitable for responsible reenactment and LARP use. This allows you to fully immerse yourself in the experience.
