Description

HEMA protectors made of styrogum. These forearm protectors have some special, elastic velcro straps. Straps help in keeping the styrogum protectors in the shape given by the user. In practice, our “Light” Forearm Protectors are an elastic HEMA protective gear, fitting every forearm. Straps also ensure a proper fitting to the jacket.

NOTE! Product is provided unfolded. It has a shape memory and user folds it on his own in a form suitable for oneself before first use. After the training with the styrogum protectors, user should put them away in a folded form, with fastened straps. It will prevent the forearm protectors from losing a given shape, what can happen after a longer time without using.

The features of styrogum protectors.

Styrogum is characterized by both high durability and resistance to hits. Our forearm protectors are also very flexible, what makes them easy in fitting to the user's arms.

Material of these shields provides an alternative solution in the category of HEMA protective gear. Their shape can be modified and matched to user's needs. What is more, “Light” Forearm Protectors are convenient. They don't bother the movement and don't have any elements which could disturb the user during the fight.

In comparison to “Vectir” Forearm Protectors, these are lighter, shorter, and narrower. There is a possibility of increasing the level of protection with “Shell” Elbow Protectors. These can be easily mounted to the Velcro tapes on the inside of the protectors.

These are just flat our great. I'm 5' 7" and normal forearm protectors are just too long and don't give me the mobility I need for fencing. These are just the right length to give me excellent mobility while maintaining protection. I've used them in several sparring sessions and taken some hard hits but these have held up just fine. Another club member has them and we both agree that these are top notch.

In my eyes they are simply perfect. Extremely light and because of their round shape when bound around the forearms absolutely comfortable to wear. During sparring I forgot that I was wearing them. The protection level is also great. However you need to wear additional ellbow protectors for heavy sparring. I hope this styrogum material will hold for some years before it crumbles to pieces as every synthethic does.

These forearm guards are very good with loose or wide cuff gloves, for example Spes Lobsters, but might have effect on mobility with other types of gloves with tighter cuffs. Protection is very good and these are comfortable to wear. These do wear quite tight and if your jacket has lot of loose material on the sleeves, then the sleeves might bunch up uncomfortably. Only problem I had was that the one of the rivets holding the velcro that connects these to elbow guards popped off. I would like to see a different fastening method in the future, although this was easy to fix.

I’ve been using these for about three weeks now, during ‘western style’ viking re-enactment fight, and they’ve performed better than I hoped. The fit easily under my clothing, so I can use them at events, they work with the elbow guards I already have, and due to their weight, they don’t hinder me in anyway. I’ve yet to try them in ‘eastern style’, but I have my vectir guards for that too.

I'm using them for a while now,and everything is really fine. Every hit on them, I don't feel anything, it's awesome ! And light weight! The only negative point for me is the strap,to keep them in place. It's really not intuitive to fix them,and often,I have to stop fighting to put them back in place because they fall down to my hands and gloves. I have thin arms, so maybe thé fixation is not strong enough. But for a prototype, it's awesome ! :) Light weight and good protections from hits. Maybe rethink the attach, otherwise, everything is perfect ! Have a nice day everyone ! :)

Can't say anything bad about them, I like them so much! I think with 1-2 free fencing per week, for me they might last for 2-3 years, which is great. They are very light, and they protects well.

Been useing then for a few months now and I use them together with the spes elbow shells on a spes AP (small). They were stiffer then i thought and this is good for the protection but still not detrimental for shapeing. I leave mine on the jacket all the time and it workes fine. The only thing that i can critisise is that the elbow shell needs to be put under 5cm of the forearm protecton but since they work as one unit there is no movement problem. The only movement problem comes with the wrist if you put them on too tight. Last point is that they are so much lighter then the Vectir protectors. I think it's worth it to switch.
