The Burgonet Helmet was, in many ways, the successor to the medieval sallet. Used primarily in the late renaissance of the 16th century, this helmet offered similar protection to the sallet but was considered to be lighter and easier to wear. The typical burgonet was open-faced, and this replication is no different, although it includes a feature called a falling buffe, which helps to enhance the protection of this helmet by protecting the face. The helmet is crafted from quality steel and decorated with touches of polished brass metal along the sides and along the falling buffe visor. The helmet is round in shape, featuring an attached collar and neck protector, as well as a raised crest and a visor that both provide additional strength and protection, as well as a touch of decoration. The falling buffe secures around the base of the helmet via a leather buckle and strap and features cut-outs for easy ventilation and breathing. If you are looking for a helmet that is not only somewhat protective, but also allows you maintain a good level of movement and vision, then you are looking for a Burgonet Helmet. And not only is it great for keeping your head safe, but it will also make you look like an authentic renaissance era knight or warrior, too!

Remember to check out our helmet stands for the best way to both store and show off your helmet with pride!

    The helmet is beautiful, with the silver and gold complimenting each other excellently. I originally ordered the helmet due to the relative similarity of the main part (Not including the faceplate) to the helmets of Stannis’ men on Game of Thrones. Given the description, I’d hoped to be able to wear it with or without the faceplate. It definitely can do that, but I have found that due to the nature of the helmet opening on the sides to better enclose the head, when the faceplate is off the sides clank in and out when walking or moving around. It does need taken care of to prevent rust as well. But quality-wise, it’s great, and while I haven’t settled in to it being my only helmet, it’s seen a lot of use and performs well. And for the times I have worn it with the faceplate, it’s been nearly perfect, with the very useful feature of being able to deploy up and cover nearly your entire face, or pull down to allow easier vision and breath.

    I have bought a few armor pieces from this site and they have all been for the most part exactly what is advertised. This is piece is no exception. However the brass accents are not exactly what it looks like in picture. You will most likely need to get an arming cap or some extra padding to add to what is provided. All in all its a great helm and compliments my suit of armor very well!
