Light and protective, this set of leg armour is comprised of a cuisse (thigh), two lames, a knee cop, and a demi-greave (half-shin). The cop is our standard simple knee cop and is vacuum-formed from 3/8" HDPE. The rest is made from heat-formed 1/8" HDPE. All together a set weighs approximately 2kg plus or minus 0.2kg depending on size and strapping (4.4lbs +/- 0.5lbs).
The articulation is achieved through paracord lacing, an articulation style that is flexible, durable, and is easy to repair on the side of the battlefield, should the need arise. A set of cords should last for years with regular average use.
The default strapping option is to use 1" steel buckles with nylon webbing at the top, and includes a lenths of nylon webbing for looping around a simple belt. Cuisse straps are made from 3/4" webbing and steel buckle. Knee straps, if chosen, are made from 5/8" webbing and steel buckle. Greave straps are 3/4" nylon webbing and a plastic cam buckle. This allows the greave strap to sit loosely, which is recommended to avoid having the greave strap ride up the calf during use, which could cause it to dig into the shin. Note that knee straps are optional, as some folks do not care to have anything behind their knee.
These legs are custom-built to the individual. So please include all measurements. From the diagram, I need measurements 1,2,3,4 & 5, along with your height and weight.
