When you are looking for a helmet with some great functionality, make sure that you check out the 18 Gauge English Close Helm and its design. Made from 18 gauge steel, this helmet comes in one size. It has a hinged design. The front half swivels to open. This allows the wearer to put on the helmet. Once the wearers head is inside, the front secures to the back half with a swivel latch on the wearers right side.
In the front, there is a movable visor. The visor has two sections. One section has the eye slots. The other section includes the ventilation holes. Together, they create the angled face shape common to close helms. In addition, the wearer can lift just the eye slot section. They are also able to lift both the eye slot section and the ventilation hole section together. The ventilation holes form a circle on its particular section.
Above this face section is a short crest that runs along the center of the head. Below the facial sections is a flared plate that helps to protect the lower half of the face. The angled design also allows for mobility of the neck and head. Raised lines adorn this bottom plate. Overall, the helmet has a riveted construction. On the inside, there is a blackened finish and an adjustable leather liner. The helmet secures onto the head with an adjustable chin strap. This knights helmet is wonderful for LARP battles, cosplay events, and historical conventions.
