There is a reason why the great helmet of the High Middle Ages remains the choice helmet of warriors and reenactors even today and that is because great helmets, like this Steel Sugar Loaf Helmet, are both incredibly protective and incredibly iconic. The sugar loaf helmet is a classic great helm that provides complete protection to the head, usually by encasing a warrior's head in a layer of steel. This helmet echoes that design, possessing a raised peak, which gives it a shape similar to a sugar loaf (from whence the helm draws its name). This rounded, peaked top isn't just decorative, though, as the shape helps protect against direct blows to the head, helping to shift force and impact down the sides of the helmet, instead of letting it fall directly on the top. The helmet features two thin, rectangular eyelets which allow the wearer to see out, while also featuring several small holes along the front, which help to ventilate the helmet, aiding in airflow which not only helps keep the wearer cool, but also makes it easier for them to breathe. The helmet also features a shiny, steel finish, which ensures that the helm all but gleams in the light when worn. The interior of the helmet features a liner, both for comfort and for small adjustments. This is a full-sized replica helmet that is fully wearable, as well as one that will stand up to the rigors of LARP combat and light reenactment. It is available in two sizes, either medium or large. This Steel Sugar Loaf Helmet has an iconic look, one that would complement an armoured knight with remarkable ease...and while it completes the knightly image nicely, it also offers great protection, and that makes this helmet a win-win.
