I own both the Small and the Medium. The lacing up the outside of the arm
will allow you to adjust for
differences in the circumference of the arm, both at the wrist and up the
forearm. You can't adjust the
span of leather that falls across the back of the hand, between thumb and
forefinger, and then down
across the palm.
What I find with the Small is that it fits nicely at the wrist and over the
hand, but falls about 1.5-2 inches
short of the inside of my elbow. This can be a problem for a female archer
because many woman have
a curve at the inner elbow that will get zapped by the string until the
archer learns to rotate her elbow.
In contrast, the Medium covers all the way to my elbow, but the
disadvantage is that the piece of leather
that goes over the thumb, between thumb and forefinger, is too big. This
piece of leather cannot be adjusted.
Either way, I love both of these. I tend to wear the smaller one more often
because I haven't gotten hit
by the string since I learned the elbow rotation trick.
Hope this helps!
