I've like to do this as well, but i wasn't familiar with the 1313 stuff, so thanks! 

I've done leg wraps for historical Viking kits, so I'd like to give you a bit of advice gained from experience.  Make your wraps about 4" wide, and twelve feet long.  This will give you enough material to wrap it properly.  You can always wrap the excess material.  I even have a bit of a technique to have them conform to your leg  better.  When I get home later I can post pictures if you like.

Watching this with extreme interest. I'm considering upgrading to have wraps behind my shins, if that wouldn't look too silly. Since I have a winter/ice kit, I'd like to add some wraps to give it a warmer, more wintery appearance.

Jesper please DO consider posting that - or just doing a separate tutorial on it - I think a lot of people would like it.

Mishakitty, I'll put together something tonight after work.  Hopefully someone will get a use out of it :).

My way is not the only way, and not necessarily the right way.  Its just what works for me, and hopefully will work for you as well.  Anywho, I don't want to thread jack anymore, so I'll just leave this link right here...

Thank you so much guys so going to cut up the rest of the material that color I have. My pieces are about 2" to 4"  wide and I do multiple wraps about 3ft long each might try and cut some longer. Learning from my rope girth and sling long can get really tied up quick when your not paying attention but understand why longer pieces would be better... also just finished reading your tutorial and going more like that so thank you!
