Type of hat depends on exact country, decade and social class.
A simple hood is workable, as would be a coif or a coif and felt hat, or a hood worn as chaperone, or a stuffed chaperone, depending on decade.

> I'm wondering what type of hat would go well with a 14th c. grand assiette pourpoint such as the one in the Reconstructing History RH021 pattern. I'm going to be making a pourpoint using their pattern mainly because I'm an archer and in discussions with Bob at RH I concluded that the pourpoint is likely to be the best garment for me in terms of freedom of movement while still having close fitting sleeves which won't interfere with my arm guard or catch on the bow string. Would a simple hood be acceptable or look alright with this garment or would some other type of actual hat look better? If so, what kind of hat? Also, if you happen to have links to actual artistic representations of someone in this garment wearing any kind of hat or other head covering I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
