Ok so Velcro.  CRL states “close with greaves” the other parts say Velcro. Just confused. Cheers and thanks Ben

Yes, you're right, It's a little confusing . I'm not a R1 Armor expert but my two cents, "Greave" should be changed to "Shins"



Lower Leg Armor
Greaves close in the back.
The trapezoid knee plate (sniper knee plate) is affixed to the left greave and may have two visible brads or rivets securing it to the greave.
Sniper knee plate must be aligned with the ridges on the shin.


Cheers and good luck with your project.

If I can make a suggestion it would be to either Ask questions in your thread or start one with that particular question. Reason I say this mearly to avoid ”extra work”. I already answered this question in your build thread some 11h ago:salute:
