The best medium armor I've seen is Indoril, the kind that Ordinators wear. Of course, if you talk to them while wearing it, they put you on their $#!+ list. I know three ways to get some without killing an Ordinator.
[listed in degree of Spoiler quality]
A. If you don't want to get in trouble, you can buy a few pieces at Ghostgate, but not a whole set.
B. You can get a helmet and a curiass if you solve the Vivec murders. (fairly easy, fairly cheap)
C. The cultists in the shrine at Ald Daedroth are being attacked by Elite Ordinators (they wear blue robes and have most pieces of Indoril). You can kill them without being reported. With all the weapons swinging, you'll probably kill a few inadvertently.
D. (And only do this if you have no problem getting Indoril with as little effort as possible) There's a Dead Ordinator on top of the Kogoruhn stronghold. He has a complete set of Indoril armor. He also has a special Hair Shirt which is part of a temple quest, I think.

The strategy guide says orcish is the best medium armor indoril is heavy

A few pieces may be Heavy. I know for sure that the helm is medium. I got a feeling that the manual could be wrong.

Anyway, the Medium Indoril pieces are better than Orcish. No doubt about that.

The book is wrong, all indoril armor is medium type.
Medium armor is the worst. Indoril armor weighs much more than glass and indorils armor rating isnt even as good as glass.

Ebony armor is heavy. The best medium armors are Orcish and Indoril.

I wonder if Indoril greaves exist? I don't think they do.

If you have the PC version, I think the Admantium armor add-on that's at the official site might be medium...at least I'd think it would be (there's really no good medium armor).

Well, excuse me JACKASS! :mad:

Besides, I said that ebony ARMOR is heavy. I didn't know that ebony MAIL existed, but after seeing it in several threads, now I know. But most ebony stuff is HEAVY; the mail is an exception.

I've never heard of Ebony Mail, either. Where could somebody find some?

You get ebony mail from doing the very last temple quest. Right before you're promoted to patriarch. You have to make the pilgrimage to the shrine at Mt. Assanaribi. I don't think you can just show up there and get it. I'm pretty sure you have to get it as part of the quest, but I might be wrong.
