OVERVIEW

Circa 16th -17th Centuries

Evolving from the Kettle Hat, the Morion was worn by early Spanish explorers and conquistadors during the 16th and early 17th centuries. It is characterized by the flat brim and a comb, or "crest, "running from front to back which helped deflect blows and strengthened the top. In later years, the crest was often exaggerated into a decorative feature. The Morion, though often associated with Spaniards, was also common among foot soldiers throughout Europe. Handcrafted in 18 gauge steel, with a fabric liner and chin strap. From Noble Armoury.

  • Overall: 10-1/2 tall
  • Wt: 3 lbs / 8 oz

Great for reenacting, experiments, and display.
Really good helmet.  It's appropriately heavy, but very wearable.  The internal suspension feels comfortable and sturdy, and helps me appreciate the knowledge that went into building these things.  Also, I'm sort of an idjit: I was just thinking, "This thing needs a chin strap," but then I found it tucked into the lining.  Functional for experiments and budget reenactors.  Great for display.
