  • Templar Transitional Helmet - 16 gauge

    1 Review(s)

    The Templar Helmet is a style of transitional helmet that dates from the 12th - 13th century. This was a period when the open-faced flat topped helmets gradually evolved into the more protective Great Helms of later periods. The addition of a full face visor afforded much more protection than the simple nasal bar of the previous centuries – at the cost of better vision and ventilation.

    This helmet is constructed from 16 gauge steel and features an adjustable leather spider liner and buckled chin strap. 16 gauge steel construction is suitable for most re-enactment groups.

    Height: 31cm
    Width: 21cm
    Depth: 26cm
    Circumference: 64cm
    Weight: 2528g
