Pith Helmets

Pith Helmets - also known as safari helmets, sola topee and sun helmets - are a type of lightweight hat made from pith material and covered with a cloth fabric. Most of you will associate them with the British military and police forces or the African explorer hunting big game. A great item for your next fancy dress party, reenactment or to help stay cool in the heat of summer.
