Your hand smashes down another fool hardy defender rushing to their death. With a grin on your face your charge into the shield wall of the last remaining troops, your vigour and brutality striking fear into their hearts.
One of your hands cross the shield wall, your Raider Bracer slamming metal first into the nose of one of the defender, breaking the formation. They try to stab your hand but the metal and underlying chainmail makes it impossible...
Epic Armoury’s Raider Bracers is a combination of vambrace and hand-plate connected with a chainmail underneath. Paired with your own leather glove, these robust rust covered steel plates efficiently protect the back of your hand, thumb, and underarm while strong chainmail connect the plates to ensure unbridled--but protected--movement. With a Dark and rusty appearance to give it a more evil and brutish look, these bracers would work perfectly with either Northern Marauders or Pillaging orcs.

If your armour does get wet, it is important that you dry it thoroughly as soon as possible.
After handling, wearing, or after six months of storage or display, all metal should be wiped with a clean cloth. Lightly oil the clean surface with a quality machine or mineral oil. Alternatively, you can apply a coating of wax to the entire surface of exposed metal. Allow the wax to dry for a couple of hours and then buff it lightly with a soft cloth.
Rust-Prevention and Removal
Store your armour is a dry place and check it every couple of months for signs of rust. If any is found, remove it by gently rubbing the affected spot with a mildly abrasive pad dipped in paste wax, oil, or water-displacing liquid.
Leather Straps and Fittings
Clean by removing dirt with a hard brush, then gently rub on leather soap with a clean, damp cloth until the leather appears clean. Remove soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue and then use a dry cloth to wipe away any remaining water from the leather.
You should always condition leather after cleaning, since the soap will have removed some of its natural oils. Treat the leather with mink oil, olive oil, or beeswax polish with a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of oil or polish in circles into the leather. Allow the leather to soak in the oil before wiping the leather with a final clean cloth to remove any excess residue.
