16 gauge steel and an attached butted mail aventail (or camail) offer plenty of protection in this authentic re-creation of the helmets worn by Russian nobles (boyars) throughout the medieval period. Relatively lighter than more robust Western European helmets, these helmets were perfectly suited for either cavalry or infantry and ideal for both pitched battle and the kind of sporadic hit and run tactics often seen on the Russian steppes. Comprised of butted mail, the detachable aventail serves as protection for the neck and shoulders. A solid nasal strip to protect the nose gives the helmet its technical name: the nasal helmet served as an evolution over the older spangenhelm-style helmets. Specifications:
