Note: this item is right/left specific. If you want a set, you need to order a right and a left.
These vambraces combine the flexibility of splinted vambraces with the convenience and endurance of high density polyethylene armour. Made from 1/8" HDPE, they are comprised of three sections which are attached via heavy duty elastic, with the arming points reinforced with webbing for added strength and durability.
The result is an extremely comfortable, lightweight, low-profile vambrace that does not compromise on protection. Rather than make all three sections equal in size, we make the most frequently targeted area of the vambrace the largest (and therefore the strongest). The middle-sized section is the location of a few stray shots, and the smallest section, while still protective, will see little to no contact as it sits on the inside of the forearm.
Pair these with some of our low profile elbows cops under your sleeves and nobody will even know you're wearing arm armour. And at around 185g (6.5 oz) each, you just might forget you're wearing them.
Advantages of the elastic system in these vambraces:
- once you have the buckle set for how tight you like them, they're easy to slip on/off quickly
- rigid plates fit tight to your forearm, reducing bulk
- rigid plates flex and move with your arm
