Barbute helmets did not have visors, although the needs of the warrior are what dictate the evolution of the helm. This Epic Dark Visored Barbuta Helmet is as protective as a typical barbute and then-some, thanks to the visor. The barbute, or barbuta, was originally designed in medieval Italy, although because of how effective and useful the helmet was, it spread to other regions as well. This helmet alters the typical design of a barbute by including a protective visor. The visor is distinctive in design, possessing two rectangular eyelets, as well as a cross-shaped cut-out for air ventilation. On the right side of the helm is a small hook that latches the visor down, while the temples feature small pins and chains that secure the visor to the helmet. This means that the visor can be rotated up or to the side, or it can be removed entirely. The helmet is crafted from quality steel and features an incredible looking dark metal finish, which is rust and scratch resistant. The interior of the helmet features a liner, both for comfort and for making small adjustments to size. Original barbutes might not have had visors, but the two are an ingenious combination, so much so that this Epic Dark Visored Barbuta Helmet is the kind of protection that any warrior could kill to have.

Great looking helm, fits quite well, and it's just plain menacing, the locking arm is a bit rough to use, as the curve of the visor makes it to where you have to put pressure on the arm to get it around the edge of the visor, and it tends to scratch the visor edge when done, also the locking pins to hold the visor on are fairly loose, and you wouldn't want to open the visor too far or they could possibly slip out, I'll probably rivet one in to prevent it, but other than that, very happy with my purchase as it provides the look I was going for.
