My elbow cops are designed for fighters who want durable, low profile, long lasting protection without sacrificing weight. Vacuum formed from 1/4” High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), these cops can take a beating, will never dent or rust, and will last for ages. Note that some thickness variation is normal in my process, and some areas are closer to 3/16" once the plastic is cooled. However, all parts of the cop fall well within the definition of rigid material for SCA combat.
My elbow cops are priced individually, so if you want a pair of them, you will have to order two.
These cops weigh between 4 and 6 ounces each, or 90-120 grams.
A Note About Strapping
I offer various strapping systems with this piece:
Elastic and Velcro: This is the most comfortable strapping system I offer. The strap is actually a durable elastic riveted to the cop. To make that joint more stable, polypropylene webbing is sewn to the elastic at the contact points, and the rivet passes though both the elastic and the webbing. The strap passes over the joint, through a plastic ladder buckle and back onto itself.
Webbing and Velcro: This combines the convenience of velcro with the durability and strength of polypropylene webbing. The strap passes over the joint, through a plastic ladder buckle and back onto itself.
Webbing and Buckle: This is the most secure strapping option I offer. I work the pin of the buckle though the weave of the webbing for maximum durability.
A Note About Texture
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 make elbow cops from. So while you'll notice a texture on most things on this site, elbows will be smooth until I can get a source of textured 1/4" HDPE.
