Armets first appeared in the XV century and saw widespread use across Europe in countries such as Italy, Spain, France, and England. It is a fully enclosing helmet and has multiple articulation points in the visor, allowing for different levels of “openness”. Also of note is the tapering of the form at the neck, which necessitates a hinged construction to allow it to be donned.
