Cork Cavalry Pith Helmet is modeled after the British South African Company version used by the British and Germans in their North African experiences. The pointed back shape provides efficient protection against being struck from behind by debris. Made of genuine cork pith covered with 100% cotton. Side and top vents provide excellent heat dissipation. Bring back the nostalgia of previous times in a genuine cork helmet that has been tried and tested over and over again. Made in Zimbabwe.
