Description Technical Specs Features
 
Seven Pieces in the set.
Full upper body protection was necessary in a 15th century battle. This Knights armor consists of the Cuirass (chest & back armor) and the Tasset or Skirt of Tasses (upper leg protection). Each piece of armor is made of 18 gauge steel. The sectional pieces are layered and overlap to provide better absorption from a blow. Overlapping eliminates weak points in the armor.
Cuirass will protect both the chest area and the back. The sections are suspended by comfortable leather straps that adjust to any size. At the sides of the armor you can adjust the straps to fit any width. Each cuirass side is sectioned into two protective layers, linked together with thick leather straps and steel rivets. The Knight's contours provide extra absorption and reliability to the set. Overlapping layers eliminate weakness. Chainmail not included.

Tasset is the sectional parts that hang below the cuirass: also known as Skirt of Tasses. They are 11.5 inches long and protect the thighs and groin. Each is fixed with a tough leather strap. The Tasset has contours that absorb and deflect impact. Keeps legs safe. Steel rivets and 18 gauge steel make this armor set functional.
