Historically The Sugar Loaf helmet got its name from the packaging sugar came in.
The domed top was better at deflecting blows from an opponent’s weaponry.
The Sugar Loaf helmet was used throughout the 13th and 14th Centuries.
This style of helmet saw use in many famous battles of the period and was also worn by Crusaders.
The domed top was much better at deflecting blows than the flat-topped Great Helms.
