The imperial helmet is a broad classification applied to the helmet that was considered by many to be the quintessential Roman galea (or helmet). The imperial Gallic G Helmet is a replica of a historical helm found on an archaeological dig. Like the typical Roman galea, this helmet features a rounded cap and open sides, which allow the warriors ears to remain uncovered. The back features a sloping neck guard, while the front features hinged facial protectors. A small visor adorns the forehead of the helmet. The helmet is made from 18 gauge steel and features an attractive polished metal appearance adorned with subtle wave patterns along the top of the helm. The top of the helmet features two small spokes and a slot for attaching a decorative plume. The Gallic G Helmet is not only a great example of a classic Roman helmet, but it also happens to be a replica of an actual historical artifact, which makes it an excellent helmet for re-enactors to use, as well as a great piece to add to any enthusiasts collection.
