Runs small
I purchased a Medium based on the size chart for a client. It was much smaller, to the point I assumed it had been mislabeled and was a Small. I returned it for a Large and that fit more like the Medium should. Otherwise it looks good, has a lot of nice details. PS they will charge you again for shipping if you do an exchange, plus you pay to mail it back to them, so that's a fairly chunky add to the cost.

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...

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

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 thisâĦMy 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 wellâĦ 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.

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!

Leather Aviator Helmet
Couldn't be happier with the purchase fits perfect and gave me the look I was going for. When piloting a sleigh and eight reindeer six miles up, well let's just say it's breezy and a bit nippy!

Leather Aviator Helmet
This is a great hat! I wear it to ride my vintage style WW11 motorcycle with sidecar. I found the sizing to be small and had to return original order for a larger size-- but a few minutes on the phone with the staff got another one out the same day with a shipping label for the return-- so no hassle or problems with return/exchange. I have shopped here before and have always had a good experience.

Reality - old age
After receiving aviators cap, try on was a good fit. Then came the job of buckling the chin strap with seventy year old arthritic fingers with moderate numbness. That didnít go so good. The strap, buckle, and holes are very small. I think they could be larger without affecting the styling. A option of snaps or buckles could be a good feature. This is to replace do-rags, which in a cross wind have a tendency to blow off while riding scooter so will be put on and removed frequently. Think this will be a problem. Had one in seventys and eightys with snaps, not as nice as yours, different design, that was easier to use. Mite have to have leather repair shop remove and install some with snaps. If the option had been available, I would have ordered snaps. GORILLA, THE SCOOTER TRAMP

Off We Go...
I've wanted one of these since I was a kid. The leather is fine quality and it's nice that it's cotton lined. It looks very, very cool, and it's quite authenticly styled. The only quibble that I have is that I ordered my correct size from your sizing chart, but the helmet fits just a little bit snug. I suppose that it should fit snug so it stays on your head, but I find it just a little tight. It's still quite wearable and I enjoy it very much, paired with the RAF "Ace" type goggles that I also purchased. I give it 5 stars, just 'cause it's sooo very cool.

Stage Mom bought this for authentic costume for Stage Son. It looks like aged leather but is cloth. It is comfortable. It appears to be very well-made. I believe it will last for many wearings. Now, if I could find a Sopwith Camel....

Pretty cheezy product
I know this is a really economical product from an economical source, but we were REALLY disappointed with the helmet when it was received. It is really tight (my hat size is 7-1/8) and VERY thin. I should have purchased one with some sort of faux sheepskin lining to give it some "beef". I guess I got what I paid for!!!!!
