High Waisted HEMA Knickers
Regardless of a fighter's choice of tunic, doublet, or shirt, it is important for a fighter's safety to use high waist knickers or pants to ensure a sufficient overlap to prevent a blade penetration between the layers. We strongly recommend at least a 10cm overlap between jacket and knickers in the on-guard positon. Our knickers and pants are made of double-layered 100% cotton, and are cut to fit properly in a guard-and-lunge position.
Based on our SCA-style knickers, these pants are rated at over 500N front and back to provide superior protection for all forms of combat.
