The Viking helmet I bought for a gift is really amazing. The photos don't do it justice . I really hate to give it away. The details and workmanship are exceptional. With the display stand, this is a remarkable historic collectable.

This is a wonderful reproduction. I was impressed with the quality especially for the price offered by Viking Shield. The only down side is the weight. I've worn steel and kevlar helmets for years in the infantry, and this is much heavier. But the beauty of this helmet is amazing. It's going to be a centerpiece of my militaria displays from now on. If you plan on getting this helmet and wearing it for re-enactments, just be aware that it is robust and heavy. With proper padding in addition to the leather lining it comes with, your head would be well protected.
