Would shotgun chaps negate the need for leg armor???
« on: Dec 13, 2011, 02:07 PM »

would these be ok to wear with my belt and stuff and if i can wear something like these would i not have to do knees, the reason i ask is because shotgun chaps would look really cool with my concept, but if i throw knees and leg armor on it may look wonky so can you let me know what you think vod?? thanks

No. you must have at least 2 pieces of armour below the waist. and knees are a must.

I would say so yes. You must have armour and knees are required. I'm afraid chaps of any kind won't pass muster. Sorry  ;) .

Chaps probably wouldn't be accepted, but you may not need to scrap your entire concept.  You may be able to make a kama and loincloth combo work with the concept.  Try tweaking your concept first before you start over.

Knees are required now? I must have missed that. I was under the impression it was just two pieces of armor below the belt...hmm...guess I guess better find some knee pads now...

Yup, has been for a year or longer. A minimum of two coverings below the waist are required. 1 must be a cod or a loincloth and 1 must be knee's.
