Frequently Asked Questions
What Are Bracers Used For?
Bracers were typically worn by archers to protect the inside of their arm when shooting. Bracers are different from vambraces, which are forearm guards connected to gauntlets and part of steel plate armors. The arm bracer was usually made of leather or stone. Nowadays, bracer armor is also crafted using plastic.
What Types of Leather Is Good for Bracers?
The best type of leather to use for bracers, armor, and battle accessories is armor-grade leather. Our arm guards and wrist bracers use 7–8 ounce leather, which is ideal for live action role-playing games. For SCA reenactments, the 13–15 ounce of leather should be used for bracers.
How to Tie Leather Bracers?
Arms guards or wrist bracers can be easy or difficult to wear depending on whether they use buckles or laces. Buckles are easy enough to tie by yourself, but laces often present a challenge. The best way to tie the laces is to ask another person for help; otherwise, you can tie them by holding one lace with your teeth while you bind the other with your free hand. Some people use lace locks to make the job easier.
