The Helm of Yngol is a unique heavy helmet found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It once belonged to Ysgramor's son, Yngol, who was killed at sea along with his crew by Sea-Ghosts, as described in Yngol and the Sea Ghosts.
Wearing this helmet grants the following bonuses:
- Resist Frost: 30 points
- The Helm of Yngol is considered to be a part of Ancient Nord set, although it has a different appearance to the Ancient Nord Helmet. As this helmet is considered to be part of that set, you can use the Helm of Yngol to replace an Ancient Nord Helmet or Ahzidal's Helm of Vision, and still gain the Matching Set perk.[confirmation needed]

- Solution: When unlocking the room with the claw do not enter. Have a follower retrieve everything from the chest, including the Helm of Winterhold, via the command brought up from talking to the follower. Once they grab everything use the command to talk from a distance and they will return. Retrieve the Helm and return to Winterhold. Finish the quest then go back to Yngol and the shade along with the Helm of Yngol should be returned.
- Long hair will sometimes clip through the back of the helmet.
- When returning to Jarl Korir with the Helm of Winterhold, he will go through all of the dialogue for the quest but not take the helm or give you a reward. Also, if you go through the dialogue to become a Thane during the same conversation, you will not get the status item of the position.
