Your hand smashes down another fool hardy defender rushing to their death. With a grin on your face your charge into the shield wall of the last remaining troops, your vigour and brutality striking fear into their hearts.

One of your hands cross the shield wall, your Raider Bracer slamming metal first into the nose of one of the defender, breaking the formation. They try to stab your hand but the metal and underlying chainmail makes it impossible...

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Raider Bracers is a combination of vambrace and hand-plate connected with a chainmail underneath. Paired with your own leather glove, these robust rust covered steel plates efficiently protect the back of your hand, thumb, and underarm while strong chainmail connect the plates to ensure unbridled--but protected--movement. With a Dark and rusty appearance to give it a more evil and brutish look, these bracers would work perfectly with either Northern Marauders or Pillaging orcs.

Made of 1 mm thick mild steel and vegetable-tanned leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care..

Available in sizes Small/Medium and Large/X-Large.

  • Maintenance

    Epic Armoury metal works products should be treated with a wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil and kept in dry storage. Metal armour containing leather parts would needs a separate maintenance for the leather. Please read the "Leather Straps and Fittings" section below for leather cleaning and maintenance using leather-care products.

    Degreasing and preparing your armour for use

    When you open your armour, you may be overwhelmed by the smell of grease and oil. The oil has been applied to protect your armour during storage and transport. Use a degreasing product or mineral spirits and a dry cloth or paper towels to remove all the oil from your plate armour parts. Chainmail is a bit harder to remove all the oil from the links, but it can be done in much the same way. Wipe off as much as you can with a dry cloth, and with the remaining oil, you can remove the grease from the chainmail with mineral spirits or another solvent by spraying it on the links. You can also choose to fully submerge your chainmail in a degreasing product and use your hands to agitate the metal in the solution, this will completely remove all oil and grease from your links. After removal of the oil, make sure to dry your armour thoroughly. Strong, warm sunlight is great for drying your armour, but you can also use a hairdryer or a heat gun to speed up the process. Be careful not to overheat any leather parts when using a heat gun.

    Cleaning

    Moisture is the enemy of armour and chainmail. If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible. After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality acid-free vegetable oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of the exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.

    Rust-Prevention and Removal

    Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in wax or quality acid-free vegetable oil. Epic Dark products are specially treated to resist rust, but should still be treated with oil and kept in dry storage.

    Leather Straps and Fittings

    Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.

    You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
