Great helmet, almost fantastic.
So...let's just throw it out there...you might as well go ahead and purchase one, because you won't find better unless you have one custom made. The material is top quality, the stitching well done, the fit is good if you order one size larger than your hat size, the price is very good, and most people will think it's the greatest helmet they've ever seen, which is probably true. HOWEVER...if you are a history buff, this helmet is oh so close, but not quite. Overall, the design is pretty accurate, and is a good representation of WWI to 1930s helmets. To make it a really fantastic helmet and completely historical, however, three problems should be addressed. 1. The ear hole is in the wrong place (at least for me). This is the biggest problem that I could find. It should be placed further rearward and the flap made longer to cover it. You can see what I mean if you google images of original helmets. This probably won't matter to anyone else unless they plan on actually using the helmet in an open cockpit, as I do. 2. The straps are not quite right, but serviceable. The straps at the back to hold the goggles in place are buttoned and unfinished. They should either be sewn or use snaps. The keeper for the main strap after it is fastened is also too small and will probably eventually break. 3. The main buckle is a roller buckle, which wasn't invented until the 1950s. For these reasons, I knocked it down a star. I will probably modify mine by changing...

Lucky Lindy's hat
I have wanted a "leather" flying helmet since I first watched Snoopy. One of my favorite movies growing up was the Blue Max. I now have a "Leather" flying helmet that fits my pumpkin of a head.

buckle issue
Hello, While I like the leather and the helmet itself, I was disappointed that the rear buckle broke very easily. Luckily I do not need said buckle and will enjoy my hat regardless. Thanks, Bill

The quality was better than I expected. I'll be using this in my open cockpit plane.

Solid Product - Excellent
This helmet is cool and functional - wear it all the time. The detail and craftsmanship is the highest level of excellence. I was so very surprised on inspection at the over the top quality in the new world of sloppy made products.

It fits!
Only one small regret about purchasing thisâ¦My husband may wear it on a date night in the fun car and yes I may have to be seen with him. Doh! Otherwise I really like the edges that have an orange tint as they match his goggles perfectly. Yep kind of regretting those goggles as well⦠The helmet was well made and it was nice to find something with size options.

Excellent Quality...plan to wear it in an open...
Bought for a historical flight sim online streaming marathon charity event. It is a little uncomfortable after hours of wearing it with an aviation headset but it is excellent!!!! It's more that the aviation headset pushes the leather against your head but again that's after HOURS of wearing it. I bought this because it was authentic, I want to fly a bi-plane or at least take a ride in one someday, and it totally fit with my 27 hour online charity flight sim marathon event of the 1926 US Airmail Route. I love the helmet! 5 stars for the excellent leather quality, the fact that you can wear a modern aviation headset with it (wore my Bose A20 ANC aviation headset for the whole event), and that it looks great with the goggles I bought. It really helped make the visuals/appearance excellent for the event and I wear it now whenever I stream with appropriate aircraft on the flight sim.

Leather Aviator Helmet
I ordered this helmet to wear when riding motorcycle, when it arrived I was happy to find it was made of thick yet supple leather with a lining that makes it comfortable and breathable. and the adjustment straps allow for a perfect fit. Now I just wish I would have ordered the Mk. 8 goggles to complete the retro look.

Biplane not included
Great hat/helmet. Good quality leather and workmanship. Great for historical reenacting. Wether your cruising around on a Harley 47, flying in a Sopwith biplane, or you just want to impress your steampunk freinds this is the hat for you.

Perfect for summer
This WWI style aviator cap is perfect for flying or motoring during the hotter months! It is made of full grain leather and is lightweight, with functional ear protection flaps. The button-down goggles strap retainers on the back are another nice functional touch. The chin strap works nicely. I purchased it for an open-cockpit airplane ride, knowing my heavy shearling RAF helmet would be much too hot. I will certainly look the part while experiencing feats of derring-do!

Dad loves it!!
This was a birthday gift for my dad to use while driving his model A speedster. He loves it. He normally wears a 7 1/2 size hat and I ordered an XL and it fits great!
