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. This piece of functional leg armour consists of a waist belt that suspends overlapping armoured plates that defend the upper legs and waist from attack, providing a more than adequate level of upper leg protection. 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.
