The Enclosed Arm Protection is definitely a step up from regular arm bracers. If you need inner and outer forearm and elbow protection then this is your perfect match. Made from 18 gauge steel and accented with domed rivets. The simple style allows this armour to be paired with other styles of armour and still match well. The arm piece attaches to your arm like a normal arm bracer would, with two leather straps, then you close the articulated steel guard and wrap the outer leather strap around the armour and buckle it. The two inner straps will be hidden once the armour is closed. This armour provides great protect for the forearms and elbows. Look for the matching leg armour.
