Additional information

Epic Armourys Barbuta is a style of helmet inspired by Italian soldiers of the 15th century. Designed to protect the head during combat, the Barbuta is elegant as well as functional. The helmet covers the head, neck, and most of the face–while still offering clear vision through the helmets Y-shaped visor, which has been reinforced with additional rolled steel and rivets. Enjoy this sleek and easy to wear design, demanding attention on the battlefield with such details as the curved crest running from forehead to neck.

The Barbuta has been made to wear with renaissance style clothes, but it also has a high-fantasy feel. It has been popularized in modern culture as a helmet favoured by high-elves.

Secure the Barbuta by tightening the leather strap beneath the chin, keeping the helmet in place. Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

    This is a very nice helm for the money. Very nice. I ordered the medium, because it fits my measurement closer than the large. It fits small on me, but not enough to return it. The edges where a little rough, so I sanded them down. Easy fix. I would not take this as a “battle ready” piece of armour, but it is worth picking up. It comes with a glued in leather liner and chin strap. Both are adjustable. I’m not a larper, but this helm seems more suited for that purpose (Epic Armoury…well, duh!). Well worth the purchase.
