  1. Awesome Helm

    Posted by Ted - Denizens of Ethos on 23rd Jul 2012

    I have been looking for a full faced helm with good vision for a long time. This helm has the strength and vision needed and is a great historically accurate piece for the kit its goes with.
    As with most MFC gear, well worth the money, very satisfied.

  2. 16ga paladin

    Posted by Steve K on 20th Jul 2009

    Very impressed with the helmet, nicely riveted & padded and suprisingly light. Good amount of room around the face, although vision is limited looking down (but that's just the style) so wouldn't recommend for competitive combat. Smaller size may be a problem if you're going to wear a coif (i have a 56cm head circ. & it fits perfect with an arming cap & coif). Great for show fighting & general 'look at me' posing. See me in it at Balingup Festival 09!

  3. Rank 11 crime solving Paladin...

    Strong, lighter than other crusader ones, offers more protection than nasal ones.
    Expensive, but this hobbie isn't cheap. And this has been worth every cent, in fact it was the first thing I got from MFC.
    Though the flat top can cause some mild discomfort, this is easily fixed by wearing an arming cap. Add a mail coif for sheer coolness.
