>because err umm uhh it worsens his vision
Fair enough, for most helmets. But then, why doesn't he wear a domed helmet? He can still see and hear perfectly fine with one. There is no reason why Geralt shouldn't be able to wear one.

    In the books he's witcher sense is better in direct sunlight. When he wears hates he feels sluggish.

      Oh, I didn't know that. Fair enough. Though he could still wear a helmet if he had to fight at night, or in some cave.

    In canon Witchers don't wear heavy armor because they restrict movement.
    The books are really cool, I'd seriously recommend them.

            well yeah, they don't make you invulnerable, but they are useful against many tools of war
            in Witcher there are very few monsters that would hit your head without ripping it straight off, regardless of protection
            either way we know the real reason - to see the protagonist's face

        A helmet is literally the most important piece of armor on the body, to the point that we still use it today and it's use is mandatory across all functioning militaries. And people are all "oh, but he fights monsters, that means he couldn't even suffer blunt force trauma to the skull!"

        Just put a helmet on geralt if you want people to take your setting seriously.

        Modern helmets are made with shock absorbing materials, and they do protect from riffle bullets and some blunt damage.

        In wither world helmet is just a fricking plate of metal. It can help you with a cut, but blunt damage? Nahh bro. Also monsters are powerful enough to break a fricking tree in half. If you got hit in the helmet you're probably gonna get your head ripped off anyway.

                Omegamoron, they are irrelevant, they do nothing. You better put on your coat, and go to museum, see those youself and read about usability of different armor types. Oh and remember to ask the guide how much DEF armor has, because they do have DEF in your autistic brain right?

          Geralt does not fight giant monsters everyday. There's plenty of smaller ones he fights that armor would be extremely effective against

          In the books the only monsters Geralt encountered that were capable of doing that he specifically avoided fighting because it would be fricking suicide
          In the games these types of monsters are rare boss monsters

          I really don't get what fricking cope bullshit you're arguing for unless this is like a mental exercise in playing devil's advocate for a completely lost cause

      Complete immunity to slashing damage.
      Worn with a tight belt so the weight is distributed across the waist as well as the shoulders.
      Maximum air flow to avoid overheating.
      You obviously need some padding underneath too, but that's true of all armor (see
