If you are sick of the weight of a leg harness and need a break from metal armor, or simply wish to find some variety of protection that still allows you to run unencumbered, padded chausses are the perfect option. They can be worn on their own as light armor, or go excellently under armor to protect you from any points where the metal might rub. The thin padding also allows for a bit of extra impact protection in addition to your armor.
Comfort was the most important factor in making these chausses. They are made of two layers of 100% flax linen, with a thin layer of natural batting inside to allow for a bit of padding. The flax linen comes in beautiful bright colors and softens up to be comfortable next to your skin, as well as allowing for a great deal of breathability that will keep you cool in the heat of battle. To further allow for comfort, a round panel of fabric has been taken out behind the knee to prevent the material from bunching and causing pain or difficulty moving.
These chausses are anatomically shaped to fit your body like a glove. They have no stirrup under the foot as many other chausses often do, but instead finish at the base of the foot, with the sides dipping down to protect your ankle a little bit as well. This means that they offer maximum coverage as well as being very comfortable. To ensure they are tight to the calf, they have lacing at the back to give you the closest possible fit, as well as durable metal eyelets.
You wear these chausses as you would any other pair of split hose – with one on each leg. They are in the style of XIV century style pants, which of course have no codpiece like later style leg coverings, and instead can be pointed at the top to braies or an arming belt to keep them from falling down. Leather arming points have been sewn to each hip to give you the ability to attach your leg armor if you so choose.
The edges of these chausses are expertly finished with bias binding, so you can fight knowing that they are solidly constructed and aren’t going to fall apart on you. There are two choices of color patterns, and it’s up to you if you choose to go for something basic or something a little bit brighter. The first option is, of course, a singular color, and the other option is to have a second color on the inside, which will also make an appearance on the bias binding for a pop of contrast.

What are the pants he's wearing beneath the chausses? i can't seem to find them on your website.
Hi Jasper, those chausses were made specially for the photo shoot once only, but they are very similar to the Medieval Chausses that we have available for purchase.
Can I get one leg in one colour and the other leg in a different colour?
Sure, please select custom size option and leave a comment to your order with the colors for each leg.

I am looking to purchase the padded legs but am a teen and still potentially growing. Will order custom size but curious how to correctly add size for growth. Thank you
Hi Matthew, custom size chausses are made to the exact measurements. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that they will fit after the size changes.
Hello! Is it at all possible to get these chausses in a different color scheme? I’d very much like a set with primary red and secondary green!
Hi Jaron! Yes, of course, please simply select custom option and choose any color combination you like.
Is the grey under garment part of the Kingmaker linnen chausses or is that a separate garment?
Hello Pierre! The model is wearing hosen under the chausses.

1. Very well tailored to my measurements, a perfect fit under my armor. 2. Excellent sewing. 3. Lightweight and breathable. 4. Conveniently placed belt loops and arming points; supports my cuisses very well. Definitely recommended.
My review of the The Kingmaker Linen Chausses(Black and Black): Well made. I am 5'10" 205lbs and I intentionally oversized with an XL. As expected they are a tad too large. I definitely recommend a L for anyone near my measurements who wants a normal fit. The material is a bit thinner than preferred, but that should add some breathability. It is warm as expected. The stitching is all well done and mine came with round black leather string for the calve portions. The string seemed just the right length to fit a wide range of calf sizes. The area that you thread the belt through seems pretty durable and well constructed. The material is very flexible.
