Medium armor (also sometimes referred to as leather armor) is, as the name suggests, the medium form of body protection available in Swords & Potions. It is generally made of leather, thus offering more protection than light clothing such as cloaks, but also offering more mobility than heavy armor made of metal. They are generally bought by support class characters, specifically: Archer, Barbarian, Berserker, Engineer, Musketeer, Singing Axe, Soldier, Thief, and War Wizard.
Medium armor tends to be relatively popular throughout the whole game, and there is a fairly wide variety of items that are available. You will probably find yourself with a lot of perfect leather, as it doesn't require tokens or rare materials and can be made by a single class. At the higher end, the evasive armor offers a good return for the rate of rare materials used, although it takes a long time to research. (The dragon leather is a reward for the Master merchant achievement, so it is essentially not obtainable.) Some medium armor can be made by the tailor alone, although more complex items require the help of one or more other workers.
