The quality of leather is fantastic, I don't think I could find better. The construction is beautiful and seems very durable. Aesthetically, looks really nice and traditional.

I know I hit my arm a good deal but wearing this I never feel a thing. In addition, the bracer shows no wear despite being struck quite a bit. Fitting is as snug as you want it with the laces.

This also combines arm protection with a bow glove protection, so if you use both you can replace them with a single item.

Bottom line:
Feels fantastic. Provides perfect protection while looking amazing.
(PS. matches the Damascus shooting glove nicely)

I'm a 6'3", 200lb male with a pretty average build. After using the online sizing guide to get the closest fit, found it's still too wide in the wrist, too tight in the forearm, which lets it "slide" up the forearm as you move around. The material around the thumb offers good knuckle protection, but unless your hand is *just* the right size for it, the material bunches up and can mess with your grip on your bow. A good concept that doesn't lend will to "standardized" sizes or online purchase. If you're going to get it, find a local dealer where you can try on and compare the different sizes.

Would likely be excellent for someone who is familiar with leatherworking and can make custom adjustments.

      Comments about Robin Hood Bracer:

      Wonderful product, will always buy American if it is justifiable and economical. Given the search results you'll find in google images for "archer bruise" this bracer may well keep you out of the hospital on anti platelet drugs (a lot of the bruises on there are actually deadly if those people ever threw a clot :O , hence why at 6'8" I consider the xl variant of this product to be very well justifiable. Namely because it covers the full forearm and not just 7" of it like the cheap OMP one I bought.

      I decide to buy this primarily because a lot of the bruises mentioned previously extend to the upper region of the forearm and given I weight train and my veins are prominent enough on the full length of my arm to ship oil in I erred on the side of caution and bought this to prevent such a situation.

      About the title of this review: I was going to complain about the color being a darker brown (think crayola brown) than I typically like my leather stuffs to be (prefer natural light brown like seen in the dura-glove). But then I remembered my motto in life: Functus ante formo, or function before fashion, likely the antithesis of my generation at large (Millenials), however I believe it to be true entirely.

      In summation: great product, quality build, omni functional at its designated purpose and likely to last as long with minimal care as my bottles of 80 proof bourbon I keep in the cabinet.

        Comments about Robin Hood Bracer:

        I like the product it takes a little getting use to how to place it on your hand so its fits well. I dont like that when you tighten the string you have like 8-10 inches of extra string and no where to put it. I was hopping it was the other style were you wrap the strong around and around till it runs out, not a preset string which also makes it slightly harder to put on and off

            as I said the arm wear looked good and was actually better than I expected. it is easy to adjust and the leather is nice and soft to put on but thick enough and durable enough to protect my entire forearm. and the price is right...not the game show

                  Comments about Robin Hood Bracer:

                  When I saw the picture of this bracer I fell in love with it and had to have one. Being in uk I was concerned about getting the sizing right. I called 3Rivers Archery and they couldn't of been more helpful. I was lucky because the guy on the end of the phone tried it on for me. Originally I was going for a Large but we decided the medium would be better because the large would of covered my elbow. Well that was the right decision.

                  The post was very quick considering it was from across the pond. I put it on and I have to say it is 100% perfect. The leather is excellent quality,and beautifully made. The first time I put it on it took a little while but now its really not a problem, just leave the laces loose, slide it on your forearm and pull on the end of the cords and it all tightens down and locks with a leather tab. The other part of the cord ends I just tucked in under the bracer.

                  I waited to loose a few arrows before doing a review. There is no need for a bow hand glove because you have that protection with this bracer and it isn't loose like I thought it might be. It looks the part is really comfortable, supple and the arrow rests on the knuckle protecter perfect. For me personally even though I am a beginner, I know quality and this is it especially for LB Archers.

                  Here is my arm measurements which might help you decide on correct size.

                  Wrist 7.5 inches
                  From wrist palm up to bend of arm 10 inches
                  Forearm with arm bent 12.5 inches

                  I chose a mans medium which couldn't fit any better..

                  I read in other reviews that the colour of the bracer can be much lighter. Mine is identical to the one in the picture. When ordering state that is exactly what you want in the note section. Well I think that is about all I can say ;-)

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  All I can say about this is again like the bracer it was a perfect service. James couldn't of been anymore helpful. All emails were answered quickly and with his advice on sizing, saved me ordering the wrong one. The delivery was very quick and like I have already stated the bracer fitted perfect. I cannot praise 3Rivers Archery enough.
                  Thank you Oaken :-)
