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!

This helmet is exactly what I needed! Size does run a bit small but the extra large fit me perfectly. The helmet is very well sewn and the leather a good quality. It is accurate to the time period I am representing for a fancy event. Good price and fast shipping! I will definitely be looking at other items from Historical Emporium in the future.

good quality good fit
Was looking for a nice helmet for some time to drive my roofless car, and reading the reviews I have decided to purchase from here. Good quality leather, well made. The shipping cost is quite steep to Japan, it would be great if there would be cheaper shipping options on offer.

Quality product!
High quality leather helmet, super comfy, went with larger size based on other reviews and was not disappointed! Does NOT come with the goggles, but I got some on eBay for less than $10.

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.

An excellent product. Very well made. Also, the sizing information was quite accurate. This is unfortunately not always the case when you buy clothing on-line. But these guys did a great job!

Big enough
Really happy with this buy. It's rare to find something big enough to fit my honey's head. I always enjoy shopping here, good products, good service, fast delivery, what more can you ask for.

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.

The Aviator Helmet was great. It fits well and appears to be well manufactured. It got a lot of looks and people wanted to try it on. I will probably be purchasing a second one now that I have seen the quality that it is. People say you get what you pay for, I think I got more than my money's worth on this purchase. This is not a cheep helmet like you would purchase in a costume shop.

Stage Son loves it
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!!!!!
