The Slavic style clamshell gauntlets work well. I purchased the medium size, for which my hands fall into the large for finger length and medium for girth. I found the gauntlets more round than when I make my own (I am getting lazy these days), therefore I flattened them out a bit, and they fit better. For great construction, stainless steel, and you guys are in the middle of a war, these are great. Dr. Matthew D. Toje

Wanting to order the Medieval Clamshell Armor Gauntlets Updated lamellar gauntlets, Slavic style; does the gauntlets come with gloves (thus a bare hand measurement required)?

Armstreet team

Hello, Kevin! Yes, they come with gloves, a bare hand measurement required.

Awesome gauntlets, comfortable, great protection. My only issue has been a popped thumb articulation rivet... easily replaceable, it probably wasn't set all the way. 10 out of 10

These are amazing. The quality is top shelf. Delivery to Australia was quick and without hassle, faster than the snail mail we put up with in country. I have been waiting for 4 years to own a pair. I am so happy I choose these. Fit is perfect. Testing was fine, felt the hit but no transfer to skin. I am buying all my gear from Armstreet from now on.

Worked great at practice for rattan combat asked for a few hits just to test them and they felt great.

An intelligent and well made set of gauntlets. 10/10

My gauntlets arrived today and they are great! Good fit, nice looking and superb articulation. I'm extremely happy and will buy from armstreet again in the future. I would strongly recommend these.

Honest Review of these gauntlets so prepare yourselves, first off I would like to state the FACT that these are dirt cheap for a stainless steel gauntlet that has a liner included, they will protect your hands and I have taken some quite hard hits and I did not have my hands broken (I'm in the SCA), it stung a little to have a two handed sword hit my hand. The only place I would possibly see someone getting hurt from a hit would be a hit to the thumb as the plates there are very small but give amazing moviblity, so your choice. The only problem that I have had with my pair is that the thumb is not enclosed so there are times where I find my thumb has slipped a little past the plates, leaving my thumb exposed but that may just be my pair, but the thumbs are not enclosed bottom line. The weight of these gauntlets are very reasonable for clam-shell gauntlets. I have a pair of 16 gauge fingered gauntlets that are almost a half pound more on each hand so they are very reasonable on weight. I have used these gauntlets in a wide array of hilts and I would like to inform some SCA people that most basket hits are too small for these gauntlets, they are not giant but they are full gauntlets. For mobility these are the best your going to get unless you go fingered or demi-gauntlets. I have also taken shots to the wrist, lots of shots and I have hardly felt them at all. Overall, for the price and the quality I will have to give these gauntlets a 8.5/10 and that is only because of my issue with my thumb slipping out sometimes, but if that's just my pair they are a 9/10 for sure. I would recommend these gauntlets to ANYONE that is going to be using weapons that you cant use a basket hilt for (or you just hate them like me), again your not going to find any better for the price.

Thank you, Tristan! We are working on the design improvement to protect thumb better. We appreciate your feedback!

Does the mesument include the padded gloves?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Tim, padded mittens are included to the set so the measurements should be taken whithout any gloves.

I have a question regarding HEMA grappling. I'm interested in order a pair of these gloves but my HEMA instructor said that some metal gloves would be dangerous to use in grappling because they might cut or other wise cause a lot of harm to your opponent. So I'd really like to know if you have any information on this. Look forward to hearing from you and have a great day.

ArmStreet Team

Hi Jaron! These gauntlets are not suitable for HEMA, unfortunately. Please consider these ones instead: The Kingmaker Gauntlets. The cuffs can be altered for HEMA requirements (if needed).

01 of July 2018

Would these be fit for hema longsword practice?

ArmStreet Team

Unfortunately, they are not suitable for hema longsword practice.

27 of May 2018

I love the gauntlets but i was wondering what kind of glove it comes with and if you could change the brown leather to black leather

ArmStreet Team

They come with mittens and yes, leather color can be changed to black. 

25 of April 2018

Is it possible to get these made with an unpolished finish?

ArmStreet Team

Hi Tom, yes we can make them with satin finish. 

20 of February 2018

Is it possible to have the knight of fortune engraving on these gauntlets? I have the near full set of knight of fortune which is amazing and I want a more complete gauntlet than the matching demi-gauntlets

ArmStreet Team

Hi Tristan, yes it is possible. Please contact our support team for the price.

Do I have to order the padded mittens separately, or are they included?


The inner gloves are included. 

Jessica Patterson
16 of November 2016

If we order these with the optional inner gloves, are the gloves also made to our hand measurements or do they come in standardized sizes? Are the gloves padded or plain leather?

ArmStreet team

We produce the gloves in a few fixed sizes, if you order the gauntlets in custom size, we`ll choose the size which will fit you best. The gloves have special soften padding.

I think I ordered the $159.00 ARMOR GAUNTLETS FROM YOU BEFORE BACK IN 2011 AND i NEED A NEW PAIR. Do you still have my custom size, or do I need to do that again for ordering. Thank you, Kenneth Morlock aka:

ArmStreet team

Nice to hear from you! Please resend us your measurements. Also please note, now the gauntlets are also available in fixed sizes, so they can be sent to you right away. You can find the size chart for the gauntlets here.

Are these products manufactured in the U.S. or Canada? If it is the U.S., how much less will shipping be to nationally in the U.S.?

ArmStreet team

Shipping rates are equal for all states/countries, since we have headquarter in Milwaukee, but support and manufacture are located in Ukraine. All items are made here, and sent directly from Ukraine to the customer's country. That’s why shipping is quite expensive.

Unfortunately we're unable to lower the shipping costs for these items any further, sorry. There is no handling charge whatsoever on our items, the cost you pay is the amount we pay to send a package of that weight to an international location.

22 of May 2015

Just to be clear. These are sca combat legal for heavy?

ArmStreet team

Yes, they are SCA-legal according to the Marshal's Handbook.

These mittens are perfect choice for the fencing. But for heavily armed bugurt we'd recommend Mitten-style European gauntlets or Paladin Etched Stainless gauntlets, that have more rigid construction.

Shawn Davidson

I was wondering if it is possible to order these gauntlets along with fitted inner leather gloves like with the "SCA Metal Gauntlets Functional Etched Armor". Thanks

ArmStreet team

Yes, inner leather gloves can be added for $20 extra. Please add a comment to your order, we'll send an invoice for the extra charge to your PayPal email.

Stephen Peacock

Hello, is there any chance of having them made with a different colour leather? possibly white?

ArmStreet team

White leather is not an option for armour, sorry.

04 of November 2014

How do I upgrade to stainless steel? There does not seem to be an option box on this page or my checkout cart.

ArmStreet team

Please add a comment on your order, we'll send an invoice for the extra charge directly to your PayPal email.

Hi there! I already own a set of these gauntlets and love them. I was just wondering if you could produce these gauntlets in 4130 spring steel. If I could just buy the un-assembled gauntlets, shaped and formed in 4130 spring steel, I can temper and assemble them here for my use. Love the design of these, just want something lighter and that will hold up to full contact fighting. These could be made in 20ga ( .9mm) and, after tempering, would hole up nicely. Probably weigh less than a pound per hand. If you have access to 4130, or 1050 spring, these would be much easier than stainless to shape. I would love to have these in much lighter material. Thank you! -Adam

ArmStreet team

We don't use spring steel and steel thicker than 2 mm to date, sorry.

Good day I Have some questions about your Medieval re-enactment armor gauntlets We are looking for hand/fingers protection for are actors. We are looking for the protection, not the look!! The actor will fight full strength with does metal blade. I would like to know if your gauntlet is design to protect the actor from those kind of hit. Also is it possible to remove the wrist protector. TKS

All our armor is fully functional, it's made for combat use.
The wrist protector cannot be removed.
