When fighting for your kingdom, it is very important to wear defensive armour. Guard your legs from enemy attacks with the German Steel Leg Armor. Made from 16 gauge steel, this full leg armour comes as a set of two, one for each leg. Sold in a single size, they secure to the legs with three sets of straps. All sections of each leg have a vertical ridge down the center. They also articulate with the legs giving the wearer greater mobility.
Firstly, the section covering the thighs has multiple overlapping pieces. The piece closest to the knee is the outermost piece on the thigh. These pieces then overlap going up towards the thigh. The outermost piece has three angled ridges pointing down to the center ridge. This piece also has a rolled top edge which angles upwards towards the outer thigh. The two pieces above it have inverted scalloped top edges. They also have small cutouts at the central ridge. In addition, the top of the thigh section also has rolled edges. Also, this thigh section has a hinged side section. This section helps to protect the outer leg. It has multiple overlapping pieces with inverted scalloped edges. In addition, the top piece of the thigh section has leather pieces with holes in them to attach to other pieces of armour, not included.
Next, the knee section also helps to cover the upper part of the lower legs. This section also has multiple pieces including side pieces that protect the outer knee. The side pieces have a leaf shape. The outermost piece of each leg is the part that directly covers the knee. Proceeding up and down the knee, each piece overlaps the next. The bottom piece of the knee section has a bottom edge that points downward towards the shin. This section has two holes for attaching other armour, again not included. Finally, riveting attaches all pieces of the leg armour together. The German Steel Leg Armor makes a great addition to your ensemble for a reenactment.
