The classic kettle hat was a very common helmet in the high Middle Ages. It was often worn by the simple footman because it protected well by the wide brim from attacks from above. In addition, unlike closed helmet forms, it hinders neither vision nor respiration.
The kettle hat "Jupp" has a flat, brim and is decorated with curved, intersecting clasps. It has a cotton coated foam upholstery and is closed with a sturdy chin strap. This universal helmet is basically suitable for every armoured costume idea, but especially for soldiers, guards or mercenaries.
