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.
