Functional Steel Thigh Armor

Thigh armour comes in a wide assortment of shapes and forms, ranging from tasset belts to cuisse leg pieces. At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer an assortment of both, which can be found right here in our functional steel thigh armour section. So if you are looking for a way to protect your upper legs and thighs, there is no better place to start then right here. Cuisses are similar in form to greaves, although while greaves protect the lower legs, cuisses are designed to go around the upper legs and thighs, offering greater protection to the leg. Many of the pieces of thigh and upper leg armour that we offer comes with attached poleyns, which offer protection to the knees, while still featuring enough articulation to keep the leg bendable and moving. The other style of thigh armour that we offer are tassets and tasset belts, which are hanging plates that fall over the thighs and upper legs, providing additional protection to the legs from attacks that might come from above. Together, the tasset and the cuisse provide near-total protection, although apart, they work just fine as well. Many of our cuisse-style thigh armour can be paired with greaves to create total leg protection, while our tassets can typically be paired with any style of armor to increase your level of defense. Some of our tassets can be worn alone, thanks to a belt-like system of straps and buckles, while others require a cuirass to wear. All of them, however, are made from quality materials and are perfect for wearing onto the battlefield, whether you are participating in a reenactment, a SCA event, or a LARP battle. Also, included here are a number of other minor protections that fall near the upper leg and thigh, including things like articulated poleyns and groin plates. If you have got hesitations and reservations about heading into battle without your upper legs and thighs being fully protected by layers of steel armour, then perhaps it is in your best interested to come on over to Dark Knight Armoury, where we will be happy to provide you with all the functional steel thigh armour that you require.
