I own several bracers for use with recurve, long bow, horse bow and compound bows. The large traditional Bear leather lace up arm guard with stretch lacing works well, laces fast but is stiff when you bend your wrist inward and is uncomfortable. The small Neet 6" arm guard is stiff and just that too small for occasional long bow string slap. I have a beautiful studded black leather bracer I bought from a Midievel leather worker. Love it but it hurts the wrist to wear it. The soft padded camo arm guard with elastic bands I found on a hunting outfitters site to use with compound bows gets in the string's way in tradional archery or when I wear cold weather clothing. It is comfy but cannot wear it to an SCA event. This Midievel Archer's brace has softer leather that I was expecting yet offers adequate protection for the wrist and arm. It does take a little more time to get the wrist area adjusted snug without overtightening the arm part but if you are going to wear it for several hours, "Who cares about lace up speed?" Just hold the tab with your teeth while your "free" fingers pull on strings fitting it around your forearm then slide the tab down strings to "lock" position. This is just what I needed for the Medievel appearance yet have adequate protection without bruising a wrist. Just bought another one for my husband.
I am so thankful 3 Rivers carries these!

This a great armguard and I could tell by the photo that I'd like it. However, after I received it I was major disappointed. I think the one I have is built backwards i.e. the soft side (vinyl?) which I think would go inside as a liner is on the outside and the hard shinny smooth surface is on the inside. Since the "lacing holders" (for lack of a better word) are riveted in place it can't be used any other way. I haven't used it yet since I'm afraid a bowstring would rip the vinyl apart in no time. I'm going to try to Dremel the rivets out, place the lacing holders on the smooth hard side as soon as I can find rivets that match the ones that are on it. It will be a lot of work to "retool" this thing, but once done it will be a great armguard.

    Comments about Medieval Archer's Bracer:

    I prefer using traditional archery products, and I must say, I am extremely pleased with this product. It covers your entire arm, the construction is durable and very comfortable. On warm summer days it isn't too hot to wear. In all aspects it is perfect for any use. Hunting, stump shooting, target practice. I would recommend this to anyone who wants a durable arm guard that won't break the bank.

      Very well built and attractive bracer. It is full leather, except for the laces, as was confirmed by a number of respondents to my question before I ordered it. I haven't tried using it on my bare arm yet due to the cold weather here. It is adjustable enough to fit over a shirt or light jacket. Fast service from 3 Rivers.

        Comments about Medieval Archer's Bracer:

        This is a beautiful well constructed brace that is super easy to put on. However as a small woman with a hyper-extended elbow, I need protection higher up towards my elbow until I train my body better. The brace that has 3 elastic hooks (bone buttons on the one I purchased from this site) stays in place better than this one. This tend to slide down to my wrist leaving the upper part of my forarm exposed to the bow string.

          Easily adjustable, and fits! I have large forearms, and even large braces sometimes do not work, but this one fits well. It is also easily adjusted, and easy to get on and off; with many lace up braces it would be nice to have a third hand to get it on, but this one has no such issues.

          Comments about Medieval Archer's Bracer:

          This a great looking and durable arm guard. I found it comfortable too BUT the synthetic shoe string it comes with is terrible; it allows the guard to consistently come loose. Very Frustrating. Replace it with a good piece of leather or real string and it'll hold great. However, for hunting in cold weather you'll need a lot of string to get this thing over your fleece.

            Very satisfied with the fit, the size - i have rather long (34" sleeve) arms with medium build; the medium size fits me like a very comfortable forearm glove... Looks major cool, and the leather is awesome comfortable.

                Comments about Medieval Archer's Bracer:

                I shoot both left and right handed. Most other arm guards take to long to switch back and forth. This one is the fastest I have found. I did get rid of the leather slip holder. I replaced it with a plastic one. It just holds the string better.

                  Good product, and the only thing I could think to improve it would be a leather lace as apposed to the nylon one. However, it depends on how authentic you need it to be. Other than that, its great!
