How well do you think the Armstreet helms will size down slightly? I think I last measured around 22.5". I'm assuming if it's sized to 23" it's probably OK.

My head is also 22.5 and the padding sits snug on my head.

+1 on the good stuff that is Windrose. I'm rehabbing my helm from them this week.

Yes, that thing is a tank, and a pretty tank at that.  That's why I want to sell it, it's far too nice to sit in an attic not being used.

It's not nearly as bad as it seems.  The pattern I used made it very simple to do, even with a very complex garment like the one I did.

**I made a mistake on the sizing of the Norman Conical** 

I ripped the padding out and it's marked by Windrose as a small, not a medium.  I measure the internal circumference at the brow as 27'' with NO padding.  So however that translates to a head size once padding is added is what you'd be working with.
