[Ansteorra] Helm strapping

I have to agree with other posts... I think it is a padding issue.

My chinstrap is a set of "Y"'s with an oval cut out on the middle for the chin to rest in. The upper point of the "Y" should be between where the top of the ear meets the head and the temple. The lower "Y" should be behind the ear at the base of the skull just below the "Bumps" ( In line w/ the bottom of the jaw).

I hope that helps.

Good morning. I have come to all of you to seek help. 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.

 In Service,
