Heavy Clamshell Gauntlets
The economy heavy glove. Developed with the input of HEMA fencers, these gloves are designed specifically for heavy fighting and tournaments. Due to the extreme level of protection and padding, they require some break-in time before they move comfortably. These gloves feature a nearly unbreakable outer shell, internal heavy padding, protection on all sides of the thumb, adjustable strapping around the wrist, and hard plates surrounding the wrist in the cuff. We don’t let our students fight in anything less protective than these.
I found the gloves to fit well and I like the extra protection on the thumb. I get the impression that it will be easy to wear once broken in.
I bought a pair of these and have worked like a charm, hope I can buy more of those for students.
Great gauntlets. Practically destroyed my first pair and these are superior to those. These will serve well for the next few years.
