Product information "Floating Elbows"

You look upon your leading officer as he makes his way down the line of your fellow soldiers. Your fate and the fate of your entire unit is dependent on this veteran’s word, and you find yourself relieved not to shoulder such a heavy burden.

“We must fight!” your officer shouts for all to hear. You adjust your Floating Elbow armour, double checking the buckles as you listen to him continue. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your fellow soldiers ready themselves for the charge. You withdraw your weapon, eager and afraid all at once.

The battle has begun.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury’s Floating Elbow are a pair of couters designed to protect the elbows from lucky sword blows. Sculpted to provide the most protection to the entire elbow--including the sides and the top of the forearms--you can depend on this armour to keep you swinging. Overlapping plates provide comfort and flexibility, allowing great mobility on the battlefield.

Two leather straps are used to keep each of the Floating Elbow in place. Made of 1 mm mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, these armour pieces are built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment with regular leather and metal armour care.
