Owen Kettle Hat
Kettle helmets developed around the 11th century and came westwards from probably Byzantine. Quickly they became one of the most worn types of helmets in medieval europe. It was easy to make and protected well against blows and strikes from above; fro mthe horse downwards, that means. This way many infantrymen wore this type of helmet.
The \\"Owen\\" kettle helmet is built with a wide brim, which protects the wearer from sun and rain. Face and back of the neck are left free, which allows an open movement, breathing, sight and hearing. All this without leaving the wearer unprotected.
The three ridges along the centre of the scull cap not only stiffen the material, but also bring a distinctive style to this helmet.
Inside you will finde a foam liner covered in smooth cotton as well as a chin strap for tight adjustment to the head.
