Bascinet must be the most popular type of medieval closed helmets. Only chapel could compete in popularity with it; though, wearers of these helmets were quite different. Shape of bascinet helmet notably varied not only in different historical period, but also depending on the area of wearer’s living. But, in our humble opinion, spherical conical shape of dome with a center, shifted to the back – this one was the most widespread on the territory of the West Europe. “Roman d'Alexandre”, dated by the XII century with paintings of the XIV century is inexhaustible source in this issue. So, our stylization of medieval bascinet was based on the paintings from this collection of lege...

I purchased mine three years ago. And, I could not be more happy with it. I have used it in countless combats and it has always protected me. It is dented and beaten no. But that makes it all the more realistic. Buy one. You will love it.
It's really nice replica, workmanship is fantastic. Helm is light and fits my head perfectly. I added aventail so low-face is also protected now. Thanks a lot
Bought this second hand from a colleague, drilled extra air holes for better breathing and wore it in IMCF 2018 world championships. It is a tank and has taken extreme blows and I've never felt a bit. Love this lid.
