Visored Barbuta Helmet

Combat Barbuta with Visor

The visored barbuta helmet is one of the most controversial armor pieces and always causes a lot of debates. As far as we know, only two pieces of this type are available in museums, and most researchers and reenactors consider them to be a regular open-face barbuta, dated circa mid. XV century, upgraded later with the visor.

The visored helmet can be used for most types of combat, including heavy formats and jousting. With the visor up the helmet reminds historically looking barbuta. So, with its very aggressive, fantasy looking design, this helmet is a universal armor for many things, such as HMB, jousting, and LARP.

Functionally, our visored barbuta goes in a variety of steel thicknesses and can be mirror- or satin-polished, it's also supplied with a pin-lock to meet up heavy fighting formats and some other formats requirements.

  • Mitchell 09 of November 2019:

    How is the visor removable? It looks like it is peen riveted to the helmet base

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Mitchell, yes it is riveted on the pictures, but we can make it removable upon request. 

  • Mara 08 of September 2019:

    Is it possible to request a version for LARP where the eye slit is bigger and there are the same number of venting holes on both sides?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Mara, yes it is possible. Please simply select custom size option for the helmet and leave this request in the comment section at the checkout. 

  • Michael S 16 of August 2019:

    Is it possible to have this etched to match your paladin armour kit?

  • Daniel 13 of March 2019:

    Is it possible to get a 12ga version with a grated fencing shield on the eyes for legal thrusting in HEMA?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Daniel, yes we can make it in 12 ga steel. We can add eye protection on the eyeslits but we will need the exact measurements and requirements for it. 

  • Jared 21 of March 2018:

    Does this come with the liner or do I have to purchase that separately? And how should I measure my head to allow for the dense padding if I don't have anything like that yet?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jared, padding is included. Please simply send us your head circumference measured along eyebrows. 

  • Graeme 14 of December 2017:

    Would it be possible to change the shape of the eye-slits on the helmet, and if so, how much more would such an alteration cost? Thanks in advance.

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Graeme, yes it is possible. Kindly contact our support team with the picture of the visor you would like to have so we could calculate the price for customization. 

  • Benjamin 08 of November 2017:

    Would it be possible to get this visor on a bascinet? Thanks!


    Yes, it can be possible, please contact us at to order. 

  • Hugh R 29 of October 2017:

    Hi, is it possible to get this without the visor and visor pin? If so, how much cheaper would this be?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Dear Hugh, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price. 

  • Mark 19 of October 2017:

    Could it be possible to make some major modifications to the helmet design? I really like the general design, but am turned off by a couple of the features. I'd like to to look more like this if possible.


    It could be possible, please contact us at to get more info. 

  • James de Bacqua 27 of September 2017:

    Can this be acid etched to match your paladin line?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi James, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price. 

  • Nathanael Rouillard 29 of August 2017:

    Is there a version of this without the visor? If not, is it possible to remove the piece that the visor attaches to? I like the shape of the helmet, but don't want a visor, and the hinge would spoil the look

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Nathanael, sure, we can make it without the visor and hinge for you.

  • Rex Burton 17 of November 2016:

    Would it be possible to customize it to for consumers with glasses?

    ArmStreet team:

    According to the SCA rules, ordinary glass lenses are prohibited. We recommend replacing them with contact lenses, or wearing motorcycle goggles over the glasses. Then measure your head 1. as usual, along the eyebrows and 2. along the most exposed points of the goggles. Also please mention this detail in the comments to your order and we`ll
    make the helmet considering that you`ll be wearing glasses.

  • George 22 of August 2013:

    Could you guys do the acid etching on the visor portion of this helm ? Also can you do custom acid etching ?

    ArmStreet team:

    For custom etching, please contact us at

  • Eric 13 of April 2013:

    Firstly ... The model on your pictures is it the "mirror polish" or "satin polish" ? Secondly ... is it the stainless version or not, and if it is, the "mirror / satin polish" choice is it still to do ? Finally ... the stainless version is it 2mm thickness (12 gauge) steel as the classic version, and is it as solid and sturdy ?

    ArmStreet team:

    The helmet from photos has mirror polish.
    Stainless helmet can be mirror or satin polished as well.
    Can be made of 14 ga (2 mm) steel, which is sturdy and reliable; we don't use 12 ga (2.5 mm) steel, sorry.

  • McCleary Searles 25 of August 2012:

    Would it be possible to have the chinstrap strap on the chin, keeping the helmet in place? ALSO, would it be possible to have a strap attached to the visor, going around the back of the helmet to keep the visor in place for SCA legal combat?

    ArmStreet team:

    Chin strap is included.
    Visor strap around helmet - extra $15.

  • Dave! 22 of March 2012:

    Damn this is an awesome helmet, but the price.. THE PRICE!!

    ArmStreet team:

    It's really awesome helm!

  • Nicolas Freeland 19 of January 2012:

    Can you make this helm blackened or blued? Or is it satin or polished only? Thanks.

    ArmStreet team:

    To date we don't make blackening and blueing.

  • dave kershaw 16 of December 2011:

    hi, do you sell the visor to this helmet separate?? if so how much for sending it to england

    ArmStreet team:

    Technically this is possible, but we can't guarantee that the visor which is made remotely will work with your helmet.

    Marvelous craftsmanship, and fit and finish! The helmet lining and padding are very comfortable, and fit well. I do wish the visor were removable, rather than just raise up. Their customer service is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Armstreet, not only for this helmet, but other items as well!

  • Mark 13 of May 2021:

    Great service, customized this already excellent helmet for me. It turned out great!
