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.
Epic 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.
You slide your Thief Gloves over your hands. Dexterous fingers need the freedom to move, and these gloves protect your hands without sacrificing your ability to pick even the most trickiest of locks.
Such a lock sits before you, carefully wrought and designed, and you work your lock picks with expertise. With a decisive ‘click!’ the lock comes undone and you open the chest to reveal the most beautiful gem you’ve ever before seen.
Epic Armoury’s Epic Black Thief Gloves are fingerless leather gloves with short cuffs. They are made from black dyed leather and stitched at all joints around the fingers, wrists and edges. This stitching improves the strength of the material by preventing it from deforming with heavy use or from exposure to the environment. The fit of the gloves can be adjusted with leather lacing up the cuff.
These gloves are fully compatible with other Epic Armoury metal and leather items and particularly match our more cunning designs. Their low-fantasy look and moderate style can be used with a multitude of settings, allowing freedom to create your own unique costume.
Leather has been used for gloves for thousands of years
Leather gloves were used for a better grip on tools and to protect the hands
