Oktoberfest is almost upon the unsuspecting citizens of Munich, and the best way to remain safe during the drunken revelry is by wearing a Wiesnhelt (German for Oktoberfest helmet).

The 18-day festival, held annually throughout Germany's Bavarian region, is a time for unadulterated bacchanalia -- flagons of pilsner, roasted pork and buxom barmaids are all vital ingredients to a successful Oktoberfest. Yet, despite drinking until temporary blindness, the locals take safety very seriously and what's more safe than a helmet? Named for the field which hosts the festival, the Wiesnhelt is a hardhat made to look like the traditional Bavarian cap. Design company brandHelt-Pro makes it clear that safety and style aren't mutually exclusive and encourages cyclists to enjoy the festivities while maintaining a decorum of style.

Just don't expect these helmets to keep your head safe from a hangover. Oh, and remember to drink safely!
