Being crafted from natural material, it will breathe better and trap less heat than an arming cap crafted from synthetic material. Padded Cap is size Large.
Not merely a piece of kit for a poorer warrior, a padded arming cap is an excellent layer of protection for even the wealthiest of combatants to wear beneath their steel helmet; the padding helps to absorb a substantial amount of force from a blow to the helm. Should the helmet be lost in the scrum a padded cap can protect the head from slashing cuts, as it is not easy to cut through padded cloth without a practiced and unobstructed strike.
