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.

RufusScorpius: We aren't too worried about the storm, but it can cause random damage from tree falls and there is a real danger of tornadoes when the storm breaks up. We don't expect huge amounts of rain, but you can never be certain with these things.

Ouroboros: Damn, that doesnt bode well for bad winds and rain. Hope everyone stays safe.

RufusScorpius: I feel for my neighbor. He took all the siding off his house 3 days ago and was doing repairs to the walls and such. He only has the plastic wrap on the house and garage today. Hopefully it will be ok.
