Options

All vambraces and bracers are made to measure, so please don't forget to include your measurements when you order.

As with all leather armour, our bracers can be customised to your own design. If you have any specific requirements or want a design you don't see, please contact us. For more details on options, see the information page.

Style note 1: Vambraces are available in asymmetric (left and right-handed) or symmetric styles. Asymmetric style gives more cover on the outside elbow. Symmetric designs look a little better with strong decoration such as dragon scale. All hardened and unhardened bracers shown on this page are symmetric designs.

Style note 2: Buckle straps can either be fitted externally, as shown, or internally, exiting through punched slots. Externally fitted straps look more rugged. Internally fitted straps are stronger and look neater.

Colour: Apart from browns and blacks, leather is available in a avriety of other colours, such as purple, green, and red, as well as metallic finishes.
