Think back to humans first realizing that protecting the head might be a worthwhile effort and imagine what they might have used. It’s hard to imagine all of the possibilities.

While we may not be able to cover every helmet material that’s ever been tried, we’ve put together this list of the most common and relevant materials over time. With information on their strengths, weaknesses and modern relevance. All for your consideration.
