These legs are the fancy etched version of our XIV century legs. It's made to match the whole “Knight of Fortune” armor suit. There are several origins these legs design is based on. For example Gerhard von Rieneck (circa 1382) and Rezzo von Beichlingen (circa 1360) sculptures have legs like these and you can find enough different sources if you dig into XIV century armor. The legs design provides outstanding balance of weight, flexibility and protection, cuisses and greaves can be used separately along with knee cops so buying those legs you're getting several possible kits of leg armor. This is a good armour set for both SCA and reenactment live-steel formats as well as for modern heavy combat formats like Battle of the Nation's HMB.
