      Part of the problem is that celtic is an overly broad term when describing culture. A lot of people really mean 'irish gaelic' but one can't assume that's what you mean. You could go 'genericelt' and go with a conical helm with cloth garb over sport armor. Or a bunch of highly tooled leather stuff. But if you want authenticity, you'll have better results narrowing your search by region and time. I.e. 1100's ireland, etc.

      What period and area are you aiming for. I've done some research on
      Celtic armour and garb. Mostly the Celts had little to no armour. A
      shield and a spear was about all they carried into battle, but this
      depends on when and where you are talking about.
