A lords armor was often adorned with rich detailing, while a foot soldiers armor was a bit more unadorned. That does not make it any less effective, though, and that point is proved beyond a doubt when it comes to this gothic helmet.The helmet is also fully lined with adjustable leather lining, and it features a chin strap for support purposes.Much of the armor made in germany during the fifteenth century was made details like curves flanges to help deflect arrows. This reproduction shows many of those traits, including the face guard to protect the eyes,the flared neck guard. The helmet would be suitable for display, or for wearing as part of a costume. It will fit most adults, though a padded liner or cap is recommended for a more comfotable fit.
