The Kettle Hat was favoured by the English infantryman and man at arms throughout the Medieval period and was popular during the 100 Years War. It was simple to manufacture and offered good protection against projectiles. This design was so effective that it came back into service with the British military in World War 1 and 2. The name derives from the Germanic word cetel or cietel alluding to its deep cauldron like shape. It was also known as a war hat and Chapel-de-fer (hat of iron). Our helmet is constructed from 16 gauge steel and features and adjustable leather liner and chin strap.
