You look upon your leading officer as he makes his way down the line of your fellow soldiers. Your fate and the fate of your entire unit is dependent on this veteran's word, and you find yourself relieved not to shoulder such a heavy burden.

"We must fight!" your officer shouts for all to hear. You adjust your Enclosed Arm Protection, double checking the buckles as you listen to him continue. "For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!" With a resounding cheer, your fellow soldiers ready themselves for the charge. You withdraw your weapon, eager and afraid all at once.

The battle has begun.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Enclosed Arm Protection is an essential for any person wanting to protect the arms while on a chaotic battlefield. This pair of vambraces features flexible elbow couters and vambraces attached to comfortable leather that enclose and protect the entire forearm. Rolled edges and small ridges around the rim further protect the elbow, making it less likely that you would take a lucky strike from an enemy.

Two leather straps are used to keep each of the greaves in place. Made of 1 mm mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Available in One Size.

HISTORY

  • Forearm protection like this would have been called a vambrace or forearm guard
