Tonlet Armour - Modified Bellows Visor - II.7

The Visor has the original slits for sight and ventilation as well as reinforced interior pierced panels, that were presumably made for enhanced safety. Compared with the unfinished foot combat armour, this bacinet offered greater protection by not having a long open slit for sight. Although seeing out of the bacinet was not impossible, it would be, to quote one of the Royal Armouries’ Live Interpreters, similar to ‘trying to look through a colander.’
