Made with input from our friends in the WMA community, the Fiore sparring helmet is constructed of 16 gauge mild steel throughout. The standard waterjet 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. Medium fits a head 22 1/2" to 23 1/2" with a 1/2 inch layer of padding.
Not strapped or padded.
An optional interchangeable, perforated steel face plate (painted mild steel with a mild 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. The cloth portions are currently available in chocolate brown or black, please add your preferences in the notes section and we will do our best to meet them.
