The Story Behind Our Label - Le Casque
Our logo is the Adrian Casque, a French helmet design that was introduced in the early 1900’s by General August Louis Adrian. He was visiting a soldier in the hospital who should have been mortally wounded due to a gunshot to the head; however, he survived. When asked how that was possible the soldier responded that he was storing his mess bowl on his head under his casque. This inspired General Adrian to design a new helmet for the French soldiers. The casque was made with a cap insert called a "Calotte" which allowed the helmet to sit snugly on the head and

provide additional protection.This helmet style was considered revolutionary around the world and is still being used today by soldiers, firemen, police, bicycle riders and more.
