The Morion is an open helmet which was developed in the 16th century. It is based on the late-medieval kettle hat. These helmets were mainly used by foot soldiers and pikemen, later also by household troops and town watches. Still the bodyguards of the Pope, the Swiss Guards are wearing Morions.

The helmet has a comfortable, adjustable leather liner and a strong chin-strap with buckle. The liner is fixed by steel rivets.
