Essential for hunting and working in the backwoods in the 18th & 19th centuries were leather leggings worn over long stockings, breeches, or bare legs. Based on well-documented accounts, these snug fitting buckskin leggings were fashioned after those used by Native Americans and were worn by both longhunters and militia. Our Eastern Longhunter Leggings Kit is simple to make.
