Reviews


As Michael has noted, the brass rings on these greaves are the weak point in this design. At 8 3/4" wide they are a wide fit. All armour was worn with some sort of padding underneath to help absorb the shock of blows. These greaves do not include padding. Adding padding will improve fit and comfort.
