These gauntlets were designed by an Australian re-enactor to meet safety standards. Being leather they are light-weight and are a great alternative for those needing more primitive gauntlets for eras prior to plate/steel.
They have been designed using lamellar armour techniques which are found in ancient cultures right through to the medieval period. Although leather they can absorb a hit as well as any steel gauntlets.
Tried and tested in heavy re-enactment combat for over 5 years, these gauntlets represent the cumulative result of 4 generations of evolution, with superior comfort, grip and protection, they come pre-padded -ready for combat.
Buff leather and cotton so you can stain it a colour to match your soft kit (please see last images)
