During most of the European Middle Ages, chausses were the standard type of metal leg armour. They offered protection that was not only flexible but also effective against slashing weapons. Chausses became obsolete as plate armour developed around the 14th century.
Chausses were designed to be sewn onto leather or padded fabric hoes. This allowed the mail to remain flexible and avoided the problem of slipping. They were usually attached to the waist by leather or in a brace like fashion.
Point at the bottom should cover the top of the foot and the tab at the top should fit over a belt or pourpoint type device.
