Steel Thigh Armour

If you think that, after donning a cuirass, greaves, bracers, pauldrons, and a helmet, you're fully armoured, then think again! Your upper legs are still open to attack. Don't worry, though, because Medieval Armour offers the perfect remedy for that, in the form of our steel thigh armour, which can consists of cuisse, tassets, or even groin plates! Thigh armour comes in several different forms, although the most common form of thigh armour found here in this section is the tasset.

Thigh armor can also consist of other pieces of leg armour, though, including the cuisse, which is similar to greaves, but is instead worn on the upper leg and thigh. The steel tasset and the steel cuisse can even be combined, to provide protection from both downward attacks and the occasional upward strike from the ground! Being made from steel, this medieval armour is fully functional, which means it works wonders as a piece of SCA thigh armour, providing just the right level of defense that will help turn away stray blows and strikes from what could normally be a difficult area to defend. Because of that strength, these medieval cuisse armours and tasset belts are also fantastic LARP armours, making it much harder for a live action roleplay opponent to slip a blade past your steely defenses. Are you looking for leg protection but don't know where to start? Luckily, you've found the right place, as Medieval Armour has an assortment of steel thigh armour to work with, ranging from fitted steel cuisse to the ever-important and impressively defensive tasset belt.

Steel Sabatons

Read More
Sabatons are foot armour used throughout the Middle Ages and into the early Renaissance. Typically, sabatons were not worn by foot soldiers but instead protected the feet of mounted fighters. This foot armour would primarily defend the top and sides of the foot. At Medieval Armour, our steel sabatons are great for LARP and reenactment use. Our sabatons are typically sold as a pair and are made of hinged strips of steel with leather straps for flexibility while fighting. Most are designed to be worn over shoes or boots. For a comprehensive armoured look, you cannot forget the feet! Shop all our steel sabatons here.
