Your Knight’s Code is one of valor, truth, and courage. You are tasked with defending the innocent and the weak, and today your oath is being tested. Outside of town there has been a bandit attack on a merchant and his family, and it’s up to you to rescue them.

Your squire straps your Sugar Loaf helmet onto your head over the weight of your chainmail coif, and with a prayer to your god you and your small unit strike out onto the road.

Criminals be warned.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Sugar Loaf Helmet is an enclosed helmet inspired by the traditional knight’s armour. Enclosing the entire head and offering maximum protection, this helmet is reinforced with rivets, rolled steel and a curved apex. Ventilation holes and a cotton inlay are added to the helmet to improve airflow and comfort. The eye-slits are wide and slim, increasing protection but impairing visibility.

Secure the Sugar Loaf Helmet by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in sizes Medium and Large.
