American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, Fourth Edition
- n. A medieval light helmet with a neck guard and movable visor.
Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. The most complete and perfect defensive head-covering of the middle ages, introduced about 1450, and remaining in use until the abandonment of the closed headpiece, more than a century later. It was lighter than the heaume and even the basinet, and was a better protection than the sallet. (See these words.) It fitted the head well, allowed of some movement, and had openings for sight and breathing. It was forged in many parts, which fitted together accurately and were secured by hinges, hooks, and the like, and when closed was very rigid and firm.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. A kind of helmet worn in the 14th, 15th, and 16th centuries.
- n. a medieval helmet with a visor and a neck guard
