The Bascinet or 'Pig Face' Helmet is the most common form of helmet used in the middle ages. Originally developed to be worn under the great helmet or barrel helmet the bascinet eventually evolved to include a retractable visor. This helmet does have the visor that can be opened. The original purpose was to protect the warrior during hand-to-hand combat but allowing him to discard his heavy hot suffocating great helm.

18 Gauge Steel and lighter than most helmets.
