Simple but beautiful gauntlet is also good because it is solid

26 of July 2023

The gauntlets arrived promptly, very high quality fit and finish. They are very true to size, so be sure you are ordering the correct size.

Is there any difference in the amount of protection provided by Medieval Gauntlets Hourglass (for SCA use) and the Kings Guard Gauntlets? I'd really like a pair of the Kings guard gauntlets for SCA use, but want to make sure they are suitable.

ArmStreet Team

Both pairs are suitable for SCA.

OMG these are fabulous. Beautiful, yes, but you can see that. Zero pain from taking a shot straight to the hands? Priceless! The number of people who couldn't believe how good they were. Every one put them on, took a shot, and were sold on the quality.

I realy like the glovs i had ondly one prloblem the underglove sticks out a bit. This makes it bit more dificult to grap a sword or speer. But in the rest the best glove i have ever see

Review: I've been using these gauntlets for HEMA long sword sparing regularly for 4 months. Prior I borrowed everything from hockey gloves to modern HEMA gloves and expensive custom reenactment gauntlets. Overall these gauntlets offer great protection of the fingers. The padding under the plates helps dampen the impact. Each finger articulates well enough to practice dagger and wrestling. The flared out cuff does not interfere with a two handed grip making it easy to reach all guard positions. I purchased an in-stock medium and was happy with the fit. I recommend these for HEMA activities because they provide the freedom of movement and protection I wanted with an aesthetic closer to period. ArmStreet, consider adding laces on the leather cuff so the user can more easily wear them over or under their gambeson sleeve. Thank you!


Thank you for this review, Maverick!

Got the gloves today, was really excited to see how they fit, they slip on like a charm and tighten just enough to give me control without feeling like my fingers get pinched, I have quite skinny fingers and was a bit worried the gloves would be too roomy, not the case! This is my first armor item I own, so I can't say I have comparisons, but I feel I can articulate well and don't feel too restricted. will definitely continue using Armstreet in the future, thank you for a great product.

ArmStreet team

Pleased to hear this, thank you for such an informative and detailed review! I am sure it will be useful to our customers! Always welcome back to ArmStreet!

These are simply amazing gauntlets, what you see in the picture is what you get in reality. The only difference I can see is that my gloves are red leather which looks even better than the examples you see here. The gloves are sewn onto a brown leather lining that is attached to the metal parts so it's a very secure attachment. Your fingers will have a lot of freedom in these gauntlets, they fit me very well and I can move each one of my fingers individually. The thumb is a little bit restricted in back and forth motion because of the nature of the design, but side to side movement is excellent. My hands are really small making it nearly impossible to touch the tips of my fingers to my palms but the range is more than enough to grip a spear or sword tightly. I was even able to unscrew the cap of a bottle and drink while wearing these. If you want a beautiful pair of gauntlets that are also highly functional, I would suggest picking these up. The price is fantastic for the quality.

ArmStreet team

Thanks for your detailed review, Cayce!

These are absolutely fantastic quality and have transcended all my hopes for intensity I spar at!

Would you be able to do the Medieval Hourglass Gauntlet in spring steel, and what would the price be of so?

ArmStreet Team

Yes, we can make them in spring steel. Please contact our support team for the price. 

23 of February 2019

I have very small wrists but obnoxiously large hands. However, with the addition of my gambeson and bracers, my wrist is almost the same size as the widest part of my hands. Should I factor that in on my measurements for these gauntlets?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Loran, yes please leave a comment to your order with all the details.

Is it possible to produce these in titanium?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Eric! We make armor in stainless, mild and spring steel only.

Can this gauntlet be done with the chain cuff or the other gauntlet be done without brass and etching?

ArmStreet team

We can make our Finger Gauntlets “Prince of the East” with no etching and brass, please just mention it in the comments to your order.

What about padding? Do these gauntlets transfer all of the impact to the sword and how thick is the gloves?

ArmStreet team

The Gauntlets go with the inner leather gloves, the gloves are thick enough to amortize the beats well. These Gauntlets are good enough for SCA or BOTN, still for really heavy buhurts we'd recommend to chose this type of Gauntlets.

12 of December 2015

When measuring in inches, should I round to the nearest inch or should I be as specific as half inches?

ArmStreet team

Please provide your actual measurements without rounding them. Noninteger numbers should be written as a decimal numbers, rather than simple fractions. For example, your wrist circumference is seven inches and a half. Then write it as 7.5, not 7 1/2.

14 of May 2015

Do the fingers bridge onto the haft or handle of the weapon so that when struck the force of the blow is transferred directly to the weapon not the fingers. Can we see more detailed photos of the grip?

ArmStreet team

The impact force cannot be transferred to the fingers, as the gloves tightly cover them. Fingers perfectly bridge over the handle, so far we have never received any feedback about the poor grip.

Great gauntlets! I really need a pair of these!

ArmStreet team

You're welcome ;)

09 of November 2014

It says custom modifications are possible upon request. Would it be possible to have something engraved on the gauntlets and if so how much would that cost?

ArmStreet team

Cost of custom etching depends on the complexity of the image that should be etched. Please email us some pictures of the pattern at

Can you do enclosed thumb tips for these hourglass gauntlets to add extra protection?

ArmStreet team

Such option is not available for today, sorry.

02 of April 2014

Silly question: I'm interested in these hourglass gauntlets, which presumably come as a pair, but I'm wondering if you do "half orders?" I kind of just want one.

ArmStreet team

No problems, we can make just one gauntlet if needed.

24 of February 2014

Made an order yesterday and forgot to purchase the insurance. Is it to late to add it?

ArmStreet team

We'll send an invoice for the insurance to your PayPal email.

29 of November 2012

I have your gothic suit in stainless I would like the gauntlets to be stainless also but I don't see a place to specify on the order. very pleased with you all I would like to order the finger gauntlet hourglass ASAP thanks

ArmStreet team

Now these gauntlets come in stainless steel by default.
