Medieval Clamshell Armor Gauntlets
Updated lamellar gauntlets, Slavic style
Reenactment Armor Gauntlets
Lamellar armor gauntlets of Slavic design
Great choice for training and medieval fighting. This pretty simple design is typical for early middle ages – Norman or Slavic style. This model features advanced thumb shape: just a slightly deeper dishing of this version's fingertips results in a more closed shape that helps to protect your thumb from a frontal hit. If you need reliable tournament or training gauntlets this pair is a perfect choice. One of the best-sellers in this category, the number of lamellar gauntlets sold by ArmStreet delivered lots of highly valuable feedbacks by fighters from all over the worlds equal to years of user experience. Which in turn contributes to constant improvements of both functionality and ergonomy.
We've updated this popular model recently and now you can adjust the leather strap across the palm for a snugger fit. The extra of the strap is directed sidewards and do not interfere with the proper grip you definitely opt for when it comes to holding your weapon. And another tiny but very important upgrade is small leather loops at the inner part of the wrist. Now you can put on both of your gauntlets in a handy and timesaving manner without any external assistance.
Inner leather mittens are included and riveted above the fingers and a thumb to the metal gauntlet thus your fingers have no chance to leak outside the edge of the lamellar gauntlet. This type of junction also prevents leather inner mittens from riding up and twisting during intense practice or in the heat of the fight. The length of the inner mitten is adjusted to match the clamshells length – no more clumsy overlapping with your arms harness.
Now these combat gauntlets come in 16 ga (1.5 mm) stainless steel, which is rightly considered the most suitable metal for SCA gauntlets. Lighter gauge or mild steel options are available upon request.
The video shows the previous version of our clamshell gauntlets. Now you get the same level of protection and functionality but with additional features, such as rivets that hold the inner mitten in place, adjustable palm strap and loops for more comfortable putting on experience:

Important note about measurements: please take into account that we need your measurements in padding gloves or other under-armour gear you are planning to use with these gauntlets. The only exception is when you are ordering gauntlets with inner gloves from our company — in this case you can provide your bare hand measurements.
