Designed and introduced in the middle of the 16th Century, the Morion Helmet is an iconic part of the classic conquistador look. Beyond that, though, it is also a highly protective helmet that serves well in keeping the wearer's noggin safe. The helmet features a great, rounded dome crown that is accented with a tall central ridge, which ensures that blows are guided down the side of the helmet instead of striking true on the center, while the flared edges along the base of the helmet help to keep any potential debris or projectiles from falling into the wearer's face. Cheek guards extend from the bottom of the helmet to provide a bit more defense as well, while also featuring small leather ties that secure the helmet under the chin and to the skull. Little brass accents adorn the crown of the helmet too, enhancing its appeal with a bit of gleaming detail. Attached to the back of the helmet is also a small opening that can be used to secure a plume (although plumage is not included). The interior of the helmet features a cloth liner. Crafted from 18 gauge steel, this Morion Helmet is a hardy helmet that serves well when it comes to providing protection to its wielder, and when paired with other Spanish influenced items (like our Spanish Breastplate, item number 300452), it serves to make the perfect Conquistador look for reenactments and other events.
