While a helmet or chainmail coif offers protection to your skull during LARP combat, an arming cap is necessary to prevent bruises and scratches. There is no need to sacrifice comfort for a strong defense with the Arthur Padded Coif. This arming cap takes inspiration from the padded arming wear of the Middle Ages. It is handmade from layers of sturdy cotton canvas and polyester padding. Available in three different sizes, the cap is made to fit snuggly over your head, enhancing the comfort and fit of your helmet or chainmail. The Arthur Padded Coif matches the rest of the arming wear in the Arthur series.
This item is handmade, therefore, it may vary slightly from what is shown above.

Extremely convenient. I don’t have to put on the full padded hood and buckle it and it’s very nice not having to do so. Very nice piece. I’ve purchased 4 and will probably get more for that price so I can keep all my sparring partners properly safe.

Fits great under my kettle helmet to provide the right amount of padding along with the helmet harness

Solid padding for the price, but even for a guy with a big head the large was crazy large. Seriously – measure your head circumference before you order, but once you do have it you’ll be in the clear. Great for cooler weather. Did not relish the thought of wearing it at a summer renaissance festival.

I was looking for a slightly less bulky and padded arming cap and this fit the bill. Speaking of fit, I think of myself as somebody with a pretty large head, but the size large on this was HUGE. It still worked though, and I was happy enough with the quality, comfort and price of this product that I just might reorder it in a medium.

Basically a nice little padded hat. Does a great job with a greathelm on, and is honestly comfortable enough, I think it would actually work as a winter hat. I would trust the sizing guide for this product. My coif sits up on my head slightly, but grips tightly enough that it wont fall off, and wearing a helmet eliminates that issue. Makes helmets so much more comfortable and actually helps to keep the helmet stable on your head under contact, your helmet basically doesnt move when hit.
