Bazubands are a combination of elbow and forearm armour and are a very popular option for SCA combat. Vacuum formed from 1/4" HDPE, they allow for excellent protection without adding bulk. They can easily slip under sleeves for that "no armour" look, yet give you more arm protection than a cop alone provides.
Note that this is just the lower bazuband piece with no upper forearm plate. These can be finished in any way you choose, from straps, to the upper forearm piece. If you want to cover your bazubands in leather, this would be an excellent place to start. To wrap around the forearm and finish this piece, hardened or splinted leather could be added, along with a buckle. Or, to minimize weight, leave off the upper forearm piece in favour of just a couple of straps.
I can make these in any size. Because of the variation in arm length vs width, I do not offer a sizing chart. Instead, including the custom sizes asked for will help me to make a custom set that fits you well.
Wherever possible, I use textured plastic. I like the look of it, and it seems to resist scratches and scuffs better. However, I have been unable to source 1/4" textured HDPE, which is what I like to make bazubands from. So while you'll notice a texture on most things on this site, bazubands will be smooth until I can get a source of textured 1/4" HDPE.
If you want a textured look, they'll have to be made from 0.220" HDPE. This thinner material will still be SCA legal for rigid protection, but won't be quite as hardy as the 1/4" stuff.
If you have a configuration that you'd like, send me a note. Maybe you really want leather strapping. Or perhaps you want just a single bazuband. Anything's possible, so let's chat.
