You move quickly, navigating the treacherous terrain. The rains have washed out the roads and made traveling difficult, taking any trails and footprints along with it. On one hand this has made your job challenging as a scout, but it’s also slowed down any normal party traveling ahead.Thanks to your simple and lightweight gear, including your Scouts Gauntlets, you manage to spot trouble long before they could spot you. You’ll head back and tell your own group about the upcoming bandits.DETAILSEpic Armoury’s Scouts Gauntlets are a set of mild steel gloves designed to protect the wrist, back of the hand and forearm in combat without sacrificing all manoeuvrability. Each gauntlet consists of three overlapping plates, secured together using a sturdy, but flexible strap of leather. The 10 cm wide hand plate and short vambrace are made from 1mm steel, forged to fit comfortably over the first knuckles and around the curve of the arm. The vambrace is 11 cm wide at the wrist, and increases to 20 cm around the forearm. The top 11 cm wide plate is made of thicker 1.5mm steel, shaped so that it won’t rub uncomfortably against your rotating wrists.These Scouts Gauntlets fits comfortably over your own leather gloves, secured with a leather band around the palm, thumb, and wrist. Made from polished mild steel with rolled edges, these demi gauntlets are practical and affordable. With its low-fantasy and neutral appearance, these Scouts Gauntlets are easily paired with other Epic Armoury metal works.HISTORYVarious forms of gauntlets have been around for millennia, but reached a pinnacle during the early renaissanceHistorically used by soldiers and knights and considered an essential piece of armourDemi gauntlets allowed better dexterity than a full gauntlet, while sacrificing the safety of the fingers
