History of a tasset
Depending on needs, the tasset was made of canvas, leather, or – in the case of knights – of steel. In the medieval period it was part of plate armor, protecting the lower area of hips and crotch against hits. Historical sources also present chainmail skirts of similar properties and wide fabric, quilted belts worn together with gambesons.
