If they've always been required, then how did I get approved without them? That's why I ask.

I'm not saying I'm not going to upgrade my kit to meet CRLs, I plan on doing that as soon as money rolls in. I promise.

I was just under the impression we only had to represent two pieces of armor below the waist. I have a loin cloth, thighs, and shins, never have had knees ever.

That's why I asked then they became required.

They ahven't always been required. That was added a couple years ago, after you were approved. Any future upgrades or new builds you'll have to have at least soft knee's if not hard knee's. But, as discussed, extended shins etc. can be worn in lieu of an actual knee plate.
