Ottoman Empire mail and plate kolçak (greaves or shin armor) as worn by fully armored cavalryman (sipahi) in conjunction with migfer (helmet), dizcek (cuisse or knee and thigh armor), zirah (mail shirt), kolluk/bazu band (vambrace/arm guards), and krug (chest armor). Museums often confuse kolçak (greaves) for kolluk/bazu band (vambrace/arm guards), even in Turkish museums they are labeled as arm guards and mounted on the arms of display mannequins rather than on the lower leg.
