At Medieval Armour, we don't just offer a few pieces of protection. No, we pride ourselves on offering as much protective gear as we can. And that means that we're happy to offer you leather thigh armour and leather tassets, along with a number of other examples of fine leather armour that is designed to protect any warrior's thigh and upper leg. During the medieval times, tassets were typically worn to protect the thigh and waist from a downward blow, while the cuisse (which is French for 'thighs') was worn under the tassets and other armours to protect the wearer from upward-striking blows. We offer a selection of leather thigh armour that is designed to protect against one, the other, or both. Some of the leg armour featured here protects only the thighs and upper legs, although a few pieces do provide more coverage for the lower leg, too. Much of our medieval thigh armour is made from high quality 13/15 oz. armor-grade leather, ensuring that it will stand strong through the best of battle. Incidentally, this also makes almost everything you see here in this category a great SCA cuisse, as well as a fantastic LARP cuisse or great reenactment armour in general. Not only have you found functional armour, but you've also found functional leather thigh armour here at Medieval Armour. And when you wear leather tassets and leather cuisse, you push yourself one step closer towards becoming a heavily armoured warrior just like those figures from history.
