The Kettle helmet is no-nonsense utilitarian head-protection for the medieval infantryman and archer. The dome protects the head well and the wide brim protects and deflects downward blows as well as keeping the heat of the sun off the face. Both hearing and sight are unobstructed, leaving the infantrymans senses sharp to respond to mass orders. The helm is also good for the siege, protecting both attackers and defenders from sky-falling arrows and ground-bound debris.
This kettle helm by Epic Armoury has been crafted from 18 gauge steel (1 mm thick) It is lined with leather suspension for padding, shock absorption and adjustment to fit the head firmly. It has an integrated leather chin strap with adjustable steel buckle to help keep the helm firmly affixed to its wearer.
