To determine the proper size of a helmet is not a rocket science, but we will describe the procedure including some exceptions.

You can choose which of the produced sizes of all our helmets you wish us to make. The size of a helmet is given in centimetres of head circumference. You simply need to measure the circumference of your small knight's head across the forehead with a tape, and you will get the size which you will use to make an order. You do not need to add anything extra, no tolerance is required. Our helmets are produced to fit the required dimension. The production gives them a comfortable tolerance. Example:

Even Sizes

  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 52 cm, order a helmet of 52 cm. The actual helmet has 53-53,5 cm.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 54 cm, order a helmet of 54 cm. The actual helmet has 55-55,5 cm.
  • ... etc.

Odd Sizes

We produce some helmets only in even sizes. It is not possible for us to have templates for all helmets in all sizes.

  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 53 cm, order a helmet of 54 cm, one size bigger.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 55 cm, order a helmet of 56 cm, one size bigger. And so on.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 50 cm, choose size 50.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 51 cm, choose size 52.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 52 cm, choose size 52.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 53 cm, choose size 54.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 54 cm, choose size 54.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 55 cm, choose size 56.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 56 cm, choose size 56.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 57 cm, choose size 58.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 58 cm, choose size 58.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 59 cm, choose size 60.
  • If the circumference of your head measured across the forehead is 60 cm, choose size 60.

Hood under a Helmet

If you are planning to use a chainmail hood under your helmet, I recommend that you measure your head with the hood on. If you order a hood under a helmet from us, order a helmet which is 1 cm bigger. Our chainmail hoods are knitted from soft wool and they are therefore not tight and look really great. See for yourselves.
