  • Kettle Hat

    1 Review(s)

    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 Kettle Hat is constructed from 18 gauge steel and features and adjustable leather liner and chin strap. Not recommended for contact re-enactment but great for LARP, theatre or as a display piece.

    Internal Circumference: 65cm
    Weight: 1600g

    All sizes are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.
