There are no doubts, that knights were wearing heavy helmets and mail coifs only over the padded fabric headwear. Such cap could be made of thick felt or few quilted layers of cotton, linen or wool. Padded liners came into use starting the XIV century.

Quilted headwear had several functions at the same time. The most important thing was an amortizing of the power of blow. Helmet with padded inset was fitting better, did not press the head, and did not chafe against the skin. In addition, armour was not getting rusty because of blood and sweat.

Caps and hoods of different cut and design were worn as liners for helmets. Besides, knights were using separate padded ring-shaped roll.

Illustrations in “The Morgan Bible” shows warriors wearing padded caps. Such headwear (also known as cale) was widespread both in everyday life and as protective clothing element. Cap was fixed under the chin with long straps. Cale could be used with knight helmets of different models.

Helmets of type burgonet, armet or topfhelm (especially, its late variation “Sugarloaf helmet”) required another model of liner, which could cover the chin. Crafters were making special padded liner and sewing it inside the helmet. Some museum copies of helmets have small holes for lacing on the forehead and back of the head of dome.

To avoid pressure of the plate bevor on the shoulders, knights were wearing padded hoods with pelerine. This element had not only protective, but also decorative function. Thread of quilting could make beautiful pattern. Some pelerines were sewn of brighter and more expensive fabrics, than a liner, and could have heraldic colour combination.

Padded Medieval coif

Padded Medieval coif

Service was excellent and the finished product is good as well. I got mine with 5 layers, which is really protective but really hot to wear as well. With many layers it also increases your head circumference a lot. I have several helmets, some of the smaller ones do not fit with this one, but my largest helmet only fits me with this coif or a lot of extra padding with some other.

 Liner for Great Helm

Liner for Great Helm

This was the first piece I bought off of Steel Mastery, and convinced me to get the rest of my soft kit here too. The craftsmanship is great, and with maille over it it gets the look of the heavily padded coifs in High Medieval artwork across pretty well. The section around the crown with the extra padding is a great place for my helm to rest, and I think it'll work well for a lighter helmet too when I get around to making one. If I have one small quibble, I think the ventail covering the chin and lower face could come on slightly tighter and higher, but I think I can deal with that by adjusting my maille hood a bit.
