A medieval style of helmet with a light flick on the tail at the back. Predominately used by foot soldiers, as its visor came down with a slit over the eyes, giving a minimal amount of visibility, but making it harder to be stabbed or slashed in the face. Useless in Joust, although some did risk it...
The Soldier raised the visor on his Sallet, and faced his Captain.
