Designed together with the best HEMA fencers in Poland, covered and finished with two kinds of premium leather the Titan Range Vambraces are cutting edge forearm protectors made to suit the Titan Range HEMA jacket.
The synthetic core of the protectors is lamellar so it can bend to a degree and not take a lot of space in your bag. It's also padded on the inside and the outside to both dampen the blows and make the core more lasting. The outside padding also makes it appropriate as a coaches protector to practice epee flicks The synthetic elbow cup is attached by Velcro® so you can adjust the length of the protector or take it out when you feel like it.
The protectors fit a range of sizes since we used elastic strings for fastening and you can leave them mounted on the jacket making it quick and easy to properly prepare yourself for the bout. The fastening is moved away from the common target areas preventing it from being damaged in combat. The wrist part of the protector is tailored in a way that won't interfere with the bending of the wrist.
