These replica medieval gauntlets are made from high quality leather and dark chainmail. In Medieval times war was carried out through hand to hand combat. Because your enemy was bound to be holding a sword or other melee weapon, hands and wrists were vulnerable areas to aim for. The skillful lining on these gauntlets is made of finely stitched leather that goes up to the forearm.
With a combination of leather and chainmail, wrists and hands would be well protected from hard blows, allowing a warrior to continue fighting. These wonderful pair of replica gauntlets look just as they would have in the Medieval time period. These gauntlets are a wonderful addition to any military or historical collection. This pair of gauntlets are fully wearable, and measure 13" long and 5.5" wide, they will fit most adults.
