Being in the infantry, you need protection from projectiles and blows without impeding your vision or breathing; after all, walking for miles has never been easy on anyone. And just for that, our basic basinet helmet has been an exemplary companion.
The visor-less basinet is an ideal helmet for footmen, crossbowmen, spearmen billmen, and vougiers. It was popular among medieval armies because of its versatility and a perfect balance between protection and mobility. Just pair it with one of our chainmail aventail (sold separately), and you will get an optimum combination for your next LARP or reenactment, offering a great look without hampering your vision and freedom of movement.
This gorgeous, historic reproduction is HANDMADE from 16-gauge mild steel, lined with a comfortable and secure padded liner. A circumference of approx. 68 cm makes it fit almost all head sizes. And a sturdy chin strap closed with a lovely brass buckle will help keep your helmet in place during all your battles.
