First off, I know little of nothing about Samurai armor. Have you contacted them to see if you can buy individual pieces or mix-match pieces? They both look great, but there should be some way to make up for whatever either suit is lacking. Maybe an arm or knee piece from another maker?
I think the second one has better kneecap protection than you suspect. The tassets look like they will go to below the knee, and they'll be the first line of knee protection, and the textile knee armour attached to the greaves will be behind that.

rannh1: 20 years of mails, data, family memories blah blah mostly ticked because they didn't bother to send in mailers to the security mails for the inactive accounts. They just changed their login policies. I feel a bit disappointed now, less mightily angry

christain: That bites. Probably a lot of info and contacts lost. I used to have a Yahoo account, but it's been so long since I've used it that the whole account has probably been deleted. Oh well........

rannh1: Mighty irritated. Just logged in to my yahoo account of around 20 years, to find all my emails had been deleted because i had not logged in in more than a year.
