Worn from c.1400, the great bascinet style incorporated a wide bevor or gorget plate designed to protect the chin and throat. In addition, the rear of the skull of the bascinet was extended downwards and overlapped the top of the backplate. This design was enormously successful and remained in use on the battlefield until the middle of the century; afterwhich it was adapted for the tournament.
