The pith helmet (also known as the safari helmet , sun helmet , topee , sola topee , salacot or topi ) is a lightweight helmet made of cork or pith , typically from the sola (Indian swamp growth, Aeschynomene aspera or A. paludosa ) or a similar plant [1] , with a cloth cover, designed to shade the wearer's head from the sun . Pith helmets were once much worn by Westerners in the tropics ; today they are most frequently used in Vietnam . (The forms solar topee and solar topi are folk etymology âe"the name comes from sola , and is not etymologically connected with the sun in any way.)
