Rieneck Greaves and Cops

Lower leg combat armor, late 14th c.

With long, flowing and smooth lines this armour proves that sometimes simple can be the most beautiful. Our steel artists based the entire kit upon the funeral effigy of Gerhard von Rieneck housed in the Church of St. Peter and Paul in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany and have created a functional work of art.

Our late XIV century armour for the lower leg is composed of frontal greaves and leather-lined cops. The cops are predrilled to point to both the greaves and cuisses (sold separately) in a historical manner and the leather extends to semi-pteruges providing extra protection to plates that see extensive wear and tear from extended motion.

The external fan plates have smooth lines and rounded edges to balance the look of the historical armour with SCA safety standards.

Important note about measurements: please take into account that we need your measurements in gambeson, choses or other under-armour gear you are planning to use with this armor. The only exception is when you are ordering both armour and padding from our company — in this case you can send us your body measurements. For sabatons please send your footwear actual measurements.

    Can these greaves be made with 18gauge shins, and 16 gauge knees? And can the upper leather be lengthened a little more to protect the upper knee joint a little better?

    ArmStreet Team:

    Hi Jonathan, yes all alterations are possible.

    I now regret not ordering the set that includes the cuisses, because I love how the set looks. I spoke with Igor at Pennsic XLIX, and plan to order the cuisses for the set separately. I wil have to wait until after adjustments to the set I own (without cuisses) have been made however, understandably. As for the fit, I am unused to wearing steel armor. Because of that, I had requested the support elves' :grin: help in affirming that the measurements I took for this order were correct, as had done previously for a custom sized gambeson order I made. VERY UNDERSTANDABLY (due to war) this additional communication didn't happen this time. I did leave the order number to that gambeson purchase and the communication that happened concerning it to potentially make the sizing of this armor order a better fit. Unfortunately, when I donned the armor at home, and at Pennsic XLIX (were peers could lend their expertise) the armor proved to be too long in the shin. At least an inch of steel was recommended to be removed to make the armor safe to use for me. Alas, I took my measurements to the best of my ability as the diagrams showed to, but I still whiffed. I am glad to see through whatever adjustments will be needed for me to wear the armor. It is beautifully crafted, and I looked forward to wearing it.
