Adjusting the armour tight over your gambeson, your fingers are a little shaky. It’s your first time leaving home on your own, and while you saved up your money to buy this Ready for Battle Bracers, you aren’t certain you’re ready for the adventuring life.
As you make your final adjustments, admiring how secure and sturdy your bracers feel, your mother fusses over your hair. She finally hands you a bag full of a packed lunch. Tearfully, she tells you not to die out there--to come home to their little cottage!--before you set out on the road.
These bestselling Ready For Battle Bracers are a set of armour pieces designed to protect the forearm against weapons and bowstrings. Made from a single piece of chrome-tanned leather and stitched to improve the structural stability and to prevent it from deforming when wet or worn, these bracers are an affordable solution to your costuming needs. Secure the bracers to the arms by lacing its split-leather cord tight through its rows of eyelets.
The Ready For Battle Bracers are a good starting point for a roleplaying career, as they are fully compatible with all Epic Armoury’s leather and metal armours. The style is simple, allowing the bracers to be used with almost any character or setting.
Available in Medium and Large.
Unlike popular belief, arm protection was only called a “bracer” if it was meant to protect the forearm of an archer. Forearm protection not intended for an archer would have been called a “vambrace” or “forearm guard”
Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase life-time. Make sure your leather products are kept dry when stored. Let wet leather dry naturally before treating. If frequently wet and dry, increase frequency of maintenance.
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
