THE WARRIORS OF THE NORTH SHALL NEVER SURRENDER
Epic Armoury’s Dreki Armguards is a hybrid between gauntlets and demi-gauntlets, providing comfort and the freedom of movement you desire. Paired with your own leather glove, these robust steel plates efficiently protect the back of your hand, thumb, and underarm, while maintaining the same Nordic inspired, imposing, design that is common for the Dreki set. The Dreki Armguards is held secure two leather straps along with a small steel plate that covers the back of your underarm, one at the start and one at the end, which can both be secured tightly with straps. On the hand plate part, you have a leather band that you put your fingers through, for added control and mobility. With overlapping plates, rivets, and its lean form, you can feel like a fantasy Norsemen, braving the harsh wilderness and slaying ancient dragons among snow covered peaks.
The Dreki set has two colours, the primary being a Matte Polish and the secondary being Epic Dark, to highlight different aspects of the Dreki armour and again show its Nordic inspired roots. Made of 1 mm thick polished mild steel and top-grain leather straps and fittings, this armour piece is built to withstand the abuse of a LARP or re-enactment with regular leather and metal armour care.

Amazing bracers that can fit a variety of kits
Look amazing and fit snugly and comfortably against the forearm. Straps are long enough to fit the bracers over gambeson, and can tuck excess end length in under the steel.
Due to the knuckle guard, you definitely want to spend an extra minute positioning them on your arm so wrist movement isn't restricted. Also, the knuckle guard might cause issues with some centre-grip shields by limiting movement. It's fine with strapped shields though.
I did have an issue with a buckle breaking while strapping them up, but Arvi was amazing and when I brought them in he fixed them then and there.
