I'm suggesting that it is better to build your own, the commercial kits have all sorts of unneccessary stuff that adds bulk and weight.

Hence my comment about trying it out on one's own limbs. Carrying a 15 cm banadge may or may not be sufficient.
I think that a single 15cm bandage is sufficient to significantly compress the lymphatic ducts in any one no matter how tall they are.

Of course don't forget about leg protection by way of long trousers or gaiters.
