A type of helmet developed in the 15th Century, it was seen in most Medieval Kingdom armories. Noted for being the first helmet to completely cover the head, and yet still giving it's wearer space to move (within). The Armet was used primarily with fully armored troops. It was also designed to have an attached piece which protected the throat (running down the neck contour). The Armet was composed of 4 pieces (steel), and was fastened by a series of spring pins or swivel hook and strap. They could be plain or elaborately decorated. Visibility was somewhat limited, leaving little peripheral vision (a trade off for better head protection). The Armet would be manufactured well into the mid-1600s.
