The Morion, an evolution of the earlier Kettle Hat, was popular during the 16th and early 17th centuries. It usually featured a ”comb” or crest, which was originally intended to help in deflecting blows and strengthening the construction, though on later models this feature was often exaggerated as a decorative feature. The Morion, though often associated with Spanish conquistadors, was common among foot soldiers throughout Europe. Crafted in 16 ga. steel, lined and ready for use.

One of the best helmets ever! This helmet is awesome in so many ways! From a military standpoint, it allows me to breathe, see a full view of my surroundings, and here orders, which are very vital in battle. It’s heavy, but the weight is not so much of an issue, especially at the Renaissance Faire!! I ordered it as part of my Conquistador costume, and it was spectacular!! So, if you’re opting to dress as a Conquistador for your local Renaissance Faire, or for 16th-17th century reenactment, then I highly recommend that this is the helmet for you!
