The kettle helm did not restrict the view and orientation in the turmoil of battle. As early as the first half of the 15th century, people were looking for a way to combine the advantages of the Bascinet and Kettle Hat. The first step was to change the shape of the helmet bowl. It widened and curved downward more. It covered the back of the head quite perfectly, head to the ears on the sides and face to the nose in front. A warrior wearing such a kettle hat would not be able to see, of course, so rectangular slits were cut into the brim. The shape of the helmet bowl continued to develop. The back of the helmet was elongated and curved so that the back edge of the hat reached the back of the head, perfectly protecting the back of the head. The sides of the bowl folded along the head, covering it up to the neck. In addition, the front part fell even more from the forehead to the tip of the nose. The whole thing no longer resembled the kettle hat very much.

A bevor (plate-shaped chin guard), that is not included, protected the mouth and chin, which anatomically extended to the neck and upper chest. Since this part of the armor resembled a beard, it was often referred to as a battle beard (beard in Germany). The plate bevor rested on the neck and was connected to the front plate of the armor.
