Ashcraft baker spangen helm. Padding balances well and padding alone keeps it from rocking side to side and front to back on a push. It still will rise and then pivot when the helm rises too much and head gets unseated from padding. I"v test hit it at about a five and the padding works well. I'm afaid though that even with a drape that a shot width wise under and across or a well placed thrust that ot will rise or be pushed up and will pivot to allow the front of the chin at the lower apex to be struck thus the illegal part.. I will try to get the camera set so I can put out photos of it.

In the past I have helped 8 or 9 folks strap their helm based on a four point over under/chin cup strapping system with sucess, a system ive used for years and still use. However I have run across a guy with an odd shaped melon and it doesnt work . We worked for nine and a half hours and it still pivots up and back to a piont that is illegal. It does not pivot forwad and the forward strap keeps the front to back sitting well, because of the shape of his head Njord says that even his army helmet does the same thig and rides back on his forehead .we have set it down for now and am asking for advice. We've trid buckle straps with different tensions and lengths as well as diffrent tye straps and all to no avail. So if anyone has an idea or option please let me know.
