Are you looking for some leg armor to wear when you head onto the field of battle? Well, look no further than at Dark Knight Armoury, because we offer a wide selection of metal leg armor that will keep your legs as defended as you desire! Not only will it keep you protected, but our various styles of leg armor will also make you look that much more like a true medieval warrior. Historically, leg armor came in various shapes and forms, and we endeavor to provide historical accuracy here, so we offer various styles as well. Greaves and tassets are among the most basic forms, as greaves are worn on the lower leg and provide a modicum of protection, although they are also quite light in weight, which means you will not tire yourself out wearing them. Tassets, on the other hand, are worn about the waist like a belt and help to protect your upper legs and thighs. Full leg armor is a bit weightier but also a lot more protective, as it encloses the leg almost completely, making it much harder to strike decisively. Much of our metal leg armor is crafted from either 18 gauge steel or 16 gauge steel, which makes it perfect for use in SCA, reenactments, and LARP battles, as well as for use as casual costume pieces that really make you look like the most powerful warrior around. And because of its great, yet simple look, much of our leg armor will fit into virtually any theme imaginable, so you are free to wear it when and how you want! If you are looking to defend your legs and lower body with some knightly armor, then why not take a brief visit to the metal leg armor section at Dark Knight Armoury? You are bound to find something that will do just the trick.
