The Ralf Steel Kettle Hat Helm allows you to take on the role of an 11th century infantryman for LARP and reenactment. Also referred to as the helmet of the commoner, the kettle hat was used widely throughout Medieval Europe. Handcrafted from 18-gauge steel, this helmet consists of a conical dome and wide brim. A central ridge and rivets provide extra protection against blows. Leather buckle straps adjust the fit under the chin. The interior of the helmet has padding for added comfort.

Please be aware that this armour is handmade, and it can be thicker than listed here. As such, it is intended mainly for costuming, light reenactment, and LARP.

    Love this kettle model. A lot of the time these kettles make my head look huge but the profile of this one is sleek and small.

    I got a small for my 22.3in circ head. It comes with a cheap cloth padding, rip that right out and get yourself a proper coif. If I had kept the padding in it would not have fit. Right now it fits with just enough room for a thin cloth coif. But really that’s it. Maybe in the future I’ll grab a large for the extra inch. Like it literally only fits my head if I put it on a certain way.

    Honestly that sounds like a scary review but it’s par for the course with off-the-rack meatal armor. Never quite fits your build but that’s alright, nothing a pocket anvil and hammer can’t fix.
