The Rare Viking Hat is a members-only land clothing item worn on the head.


The Rare Viking Hat appears as a short helmet with four large and small horns shooting out of either side. The horn on top is shorter, while the one on the bottom is longer. The horns curve similar to a bull's horns and are a different color at the tips. The helmet has a colored band on it, with three visible bumps. This item comes in eight different color varieties.


The Rare Viking Hat was initially released during the Beta Testing in Jam Mart Clothing. It was most recently released on March 12, 2012, in Jam Mart Clothing for Rare Item Monday and left on March 13, 2012.

  • When worn on an Owl, the top set of horns are invisible.

  • Despite its name, historians believe that Vikings never wore horned helmets like these.
  • This item was formerly called the "Viking Hat" until the rare tag was added to the item.
