Use the mod manager or simply copy the .esp and the meshes folder to your skyrim data folder. and don't forget to select them in your load order.
NOTE: If you are updating from version 0.9 or earlier, you'll need to remove the old mod (the *.esp files) and re-install the newest version.


NOT compatible with any mod that modifies the mesh files or the stats of the subjected helmets.
The mod with priority will overwrite the other one's changes. Therefore, if you see headless NPCs check for mod confilcts and adjust loading order.

Known Bugs
Very long beards will clip through the helmet.
