Just a quick follow up on my experiences with the thigh and groin protector. Generally we are very pleased with them. They offer great protection without inhibiting movement to any significant degree. They are really solid, and will probably last my HEMA lifetime. One of the Velcro straps on mine has gone up at the seems though, so there might be some models with sub-par stitching. To be sure, sewing it back in is not that great of a hassle, but it was a disappointing fault in a great product. The others in our guild have not had the same problem.
The only major complaint I have is the shipping price, which seems excessively steep, as P+P cost was over 50£ for five pieces. And this was only to Denmark, so beware if you're ordering from outside the EU.
