The Middle Ages covered a sizeable span of time, and that was time enough for the helmet to undergo many radical changes. And that's why the Medieval Helmets section of Medieval Armour is so full of different styles, because between classic medieval helmets and newer renaissance helmets, there were a lot of helms for a warrior to choose from. There is no one true medieval helmet, simply because, as stated above, the helmet underwent a lot of changes during medieval times, as warriors were constantly adapting their armour to suit the most pressing needs possible. This is why our medieval helms are so varied. If you're looking for a functional helmet, though, you've come to the right place, as you'll find functional varieties of all manner of historic helmets. Knights, crusaders, and Templars will find that the bascinet helmet, the great helmet, the sugar loaf helmet, and the sallet helmet are all typical of what many defined as a knight helmet or a crusader helmet. The regular soldier, on the other hand, will feel right at home wearing the kettle hat, the spangenhelm, or the barbute helmet, which are simpler, but no less protective. Virtually every helmet you'll find here is a steel helmet that's designed to take some level of punishment, although some are meant more for the rigors of combat while others are made first and foremost for their looks. You'll also find a number of great SCA helmets here, which are designed to take good knocks and provide more than adequate protection when facing a weighted and blunted training sword. Although there typically isn't any one perfect helmet for any particular style of warrior, you are almost certain to find one or more perfect medieval helmets for you to wear whenever you browse through Medieval Armour's section of Medieval Helms and Helmets.
