This helmet is popular amongst 1 Defence pures as it has amongst the highest stats for a helmet that requires level 1 Defence, with defensive bonuses comparable to a Black full helm. It is also popular among Abyss runecrafters as it has low weight. Of particular note is its relatively high Magic defence. With a bonus of +7, its Magic defence is superior to every other piece of headgear in the game aside from the 3rd age mage hat, the Armadyl helmet, the Healer hat, the Slayer helmet (i), and the halos from Castle Wars.
If lost, another can be found in the cave where The Kendal resided in. If the quest is completed, one can also be obtained by speaking to Hamal the Chieftain. You cannot have more than one at a time, unless you drop the hat and obtain another then use Telekinetic Grab on the dropped one.
- Prior to an update in March of 2018, if the player lost the bearhead without completing the Mountain Daughter quest, they would have to complete the quest to obtain another one. This was noteworthy as upon completion the quest rewarded 2,000 Prayer experience, something pure accounts, the most notable users of the bearhead, wanted to avoid.
