Soft Armor Leg Protection
Soft cuisses and greaves
Tell us the truth – have you ever had a feeling while packing your stuff for the training or for another War event that all the medieval hobbies and the medieval martial arts in particular were invented to make modern people struggle more? Even more so if you are into historical reconstruction and all your armor is made of mild steel – we can feel your pain! Hours of maintenance, kilograms or pounds of trunk load or check-in luggage and dozens of bruises and chafings, let alone the price. We at ArmStreet do share your passion towards true materials though and took a piece of action to make the market of steel armor shine more and chafe less, but here we bring to your attention a revolutionary solution. Made of various types of nylon, the Soft Armor has foam inside and takes your fighting experience on quite a different level. While being rather bulky, the foam based armor is a perfect protection for a medieval fighting beginner as it weighs less, requires less maintenance time, needs no padding and shows more mercy towards your skin.
This set of leg protection is inspired by popular steel harness back from the XIV century. The key point is a knee and its protection – this one-piece leg armor does a great job of keeping your knee safe. Fastened with the help of several velcros, it needs no attachment to the padding or to the cuirass while these options are still available. The rear part of your leg would stay uncovered to give you the best freedom of movement possible. Soft but reliable foam wrapped in nylon protects the front part of the thigh, knee and calf down to the ankle.
We asked experienced fighters to compare this lower limbs protection to the regular steel cuisses with knee cops and greaves and they assured us the feeling of protection and maneuverability is very similar! The friends of yours you've just egged on to join you at the next training would be happy to start with this kind of armor and not with a steel one, believe us. Have no doubt – the further transition to a real armor will be smooth for them if they decide to stick to the adventure.
