A pith helmet is a type of headgear commonly worn by Europeans in locales such as Egypt.

Pith helmets are large light-coloured helmets fashioned from the tissue of the sola plant, worn to protect the wearer from the sun's rays. Pith helmets could be worn by English soldiers and guards as part of their uniform, and were worn by civilians as well, such as Jonathan Carnahan.
