Medieval helmet had never been used independently - only with additional mail or padded protection of the head, face, neck and shoulders.
Usually, helmet was combined with padded aventail, that is an addition to the Bascinet or Barbute type helmet. It perfectly protects the shoulders and neck, and its high front padded part covers your chin. It is very important while using Bascinet with or without visor.
This padded aventail is made of wool and has cotton lining. The lacing on the back side fixes the aventail in a good way.
You can use this type of padded aventail together with mail aventail.
We use only natural fabric for manufacturing of medieval padded aventail. Different colours are available for order.
