Made with input from our friends in the WMA community, the Fiore sparring helmet is constructed of 16 gauge mild steel throughout. The standard water jet pierced face offers authentic appearance, outstanding vision, breathing and protection, while the short back plate offers protection without impeding mobility. The center pivot visor is attached using a simple non-interchange hinge.
An optional interchangeable, perforated steel face plate (painted mild steel with a mild steel or stainless steel border) that meets SCA requirements for steel weapon combat is available for an extra cost as is a threaded hinge that can readily allow the wearer to change face plates for differing conditions.
The cloth bib and drape combination is made to pass an SCA style punch test, using layers of cotton or linen and a light padded core to add protection for the wearer's neck and throat. This is not intended to replace a gorget of some fashion, but to add another layer of protection. Cloth colors available vary, however we generally have black, green, chocolate brown and butternut brown available.
Measure the circumference of your head around the brow area. Do not add anything to your measurements. If you want more than 1/2" padding in your helm, let us know and we will make the necessary adjustments.
