Jesses: Leather leg collars used in falconry. Jess shares its etymology with the verb jet, as in he jetted the falcon into the air.
With the eagle came two small leather bags. In one was a gauntlet of goat skin to cover the forearm from wrist to elbow, in the other the leather hood and jesses and swivels and the leash.
