Oddly enough, a barrel helm is what it says on the packet - a helm that looks like a barrel. You make it of metal, and cut a hole in it to see out of. Then you put it on (checking that the hole is reasonably adjacent to your eyes) and get belted on the cranium several times over.

If you're alive after that, it's probably functional.

The barrel helm is also called the great helm or heaume, and is known in period by the 13th century.
