Being in the legion, you need protection from projectiles and blows without disturbing your vision or your breathing! After all, you legionnaires are well known for walking hundreds of miles on the empire road, from one battlefield to another, and walking miles has never been easy for those wearing a fully enclosed helmet.
The Roman helmet worn during the Empire is the product of a slow evolution of the first simple Italian bronze helmet to the Celtic-influenced helmet worn by the legionaries of Augustus, Trajan, Hadrian and all other famous Roman emperors.
The fact is that this remarkable helmet proves surprisingly versatile and strikes a perfect balance between protection and mobility. Just pair it with one of our lorica hamata and you'll get an ideal combination for your next LARP or reconstitution! A great look without harming your vision and freedom of movement.
This gorgeous helmet is handmade 18 gauge soft steel, lined with a comfortable and secure synthetic leather lining. A circumference of approx. 68 cm makes almost all head sizes fit. The historic crest attached to the top will make your Roman outfit stand out!
