I am going to try to demonstrate how to make a functional "Back & Top of the head" protector yourself. The pattern was provided to me free of charge by Terry of That Guy's Products who makes some of the best fencing helmets on the market. This back of the head protector was designed by him to supplement his steel sparring helmets but he soon found out that they also work well with fencing masks. His only condition for providing us with the pattern is that we not try to make money off his design. He also asked that we consider his sparring helmets when we're in the market to buy a good fencing helmet.
