Our Kidney Belts are wide, leather belts that mainly provide protection to the Kidney area. These Kidney Belts are great for using when you are in the SCA sword fighting, but are also great for LARPing, creating or adding to a costume or outfit, and even for motorcyclists. We have many different styles of leather kidney belts, from Gladiator designs to traditional Medieval, as well as Fantasy and more Modern styled belts. If you are LARPing or wearing a Kidney belt to a Renaissance Fair or as part of your outfit and you do not really need it for functional reasons, we suggest a medium weight leather, like 7/8 ounce. If you are doing full contact Re-enactments or plan on wearing this while riding a motorcycle, we suggest a heavier leather, such as the 13/15 ounce. Many of our Kidney Belts are made in our work shop, right here in the USA.
