If you are a warrior who wants protection first and looks second, then perhaps this Steel Barbuta Helmet is just what you are looking for. Modeled after the Italian barbute helmets of the Middle Ages, this helm is rather simple, yet strikingly effective. It was the Italians who first crafted the barbuta, and this recreation echoes the classic look of their historic designs. The helmet consists of full-metal protection for the head, including a subtle, small ridge along the top of the helm. This barbuta has a Y-shaped opening at the front that leaves the wearers face open, allowing for clear vision. This helmet is crafted entirely from steel. The interior of the helmet features a liner, both for comfort and for small adjustments to size. It is a full-size replica helmet that is fully wearable, and when worn, it will stand up rather well to the rigors and impacts experienced during the course of LARP combat and light reenactment. It is available in two sizes, either medium or large. It may not be the fanciest helmet a warrior can wear, but with the level of protection it provides, the trade-off of looks to function is one any warrior is sure to make.

Please be aware that these items are handmade. Slight deviations in pattern, color, and shape may occur.

Be sure to wear this helmet with an arming cap for enhanced comfort and safety. And remember to check out our helmet stands for the best way to both store and show off your helmet with pride!

    I have a 24 inch circumference head, and with an additional inch of padding the large fits perfectly. Great ventilation, visibility and protection. Feels rock solid on my head with great chin strap.

  2. David W.

    Lightweight and stylish. Fit straight out of the box. Though I wouldn’t attempt such a thing I feel battle ready for sure as soon as the chin strap it tightened under my chin. An excellent item and a wonderful purchase. I would recommend this and other styles of theses helms to anyone as dorky as I am! Sincerely-Dylan-

    Good quality for the money. Got exact design what is pictured in stock photo, which is a big plus. I’ve ordered this design from an other online buyer and had to return due to inaccurate shaping of helm. I recommend and would purchase again if need be.

    An excellent helmet with one small flaw – the strap buckle on mine is too high up the cheek and is nearly impossible to buckle. I will likely order an extender to rectify the issue. Other than that, a great piece that was delivered well wrapped and greased.
