Leather Helmets

If you're looking for an alternative to a metal helmet, then look no further, because Dark Knight Armoury has a wide selection of leather helmets that are sure to fit the bill. Leather is many things, but among the more important qualities it confers to these helmets is a lightness and comfort not typically found in metal helmets. Of course, lightness typically means less protection, although the benefits of comfort and ease of movement ensure that leather remains a viable option, especially when you consider that even metal-helmet-wearing warriors will endeavor to avoid getting hit in the head. Leather just makes it easier to see the blow coming and avoid it altogether! Many of our leather helmets echo the look and style of classic medieval helmets in a lighter package, although they still offer a good level of protection that ensures when they take a hit, you're more likely to shrug it off and keep going. Others are designs that are purely out of fantasy, yet still have the effectiveness that any warrior would want in a good, solid piece of head protection. Our leather helmets are made from high quality leather, which makes it great for use as a costume piece as well as for use in LARP battles, reenactments, and sometimes, even SCA events (check with your local chapter to determine rules and regulations first, as these can vary). Also note that when applicable, our leather helmets list the weight of the leather used, which determines its thickness. Some of our leather helmets even feature metal plating, which only enhances their level of defense (see individual descriptions for which ones these are). Do you want to keep your head protected but want something that's light, something that won't slow you down, especially when it comes to moving your head around? Pass on the all-steel helmet, because you want one of the leather helmets found right here at Dark Knight Armoury.
