A helmet is a form of protective gear worn to protect the head. More specifically, a helmet complements the skull in protecting the human brain. Ceremonial or symbolic helmets (e. g., a policeman's helmet in the United Kingdom) without protective function are sometimes worn. Soldiers wear combat helmets, often made from Kevlar or other lightweight synthetic fibers. The word helmet is derived from helm, an Old English word for a protective head covering. Helmets are used for recreational activities and sports (e. g., jockeys in horse racing, American football, ice hockey, cricket, baseball, camogie, hurling and rock climbing), dangerous work activities such as construction, mining, riot police, military aviation, and in transportation (e. g. motorcycle helmets and bicycle helmets). Since the 1990s, most helmets are made from resin or plastic, which may be reinforced with fibers such as aramids. Designs Some British gamekeepers during the 18th and 19th centuries wore helmets made of straw bound together with cut bramble. Europeans in the tropics often wore the pith helmet, developed in the mid-19th century and made of pith or cork. Military applications in the 19th20th centuries saw a number of leather helmets, particularly among aviators and tank crews in the early 20th century.
