Great guards June 1, 2017
Reviewer: Mark Gelineau from San Jose, CA United States  
Comfortable and strong guards.  Really like them.  They fit well over light gloves or under heavier gloves.  Would have liked a bit of padding in elbow, but can always add that myself.  Overall, great.  
Purpleheart was also awesome and I will keep coming back here for my HEMA needs.

SPES forearm ans elbow guards April 19, 2017
Reviewer: Philippe Farley from CHICOUTIMI, QC Canada  
Nice production. Good protection. Needs a little extra padding on the elbow guard if you use them without a long sleeve shirt or gambison. Very nice piece of protection.

These are good, but a few tweaks needed.... March 6, 2017
Reviewer: Dana from ]NM United States  
These offer very good protection from the elbow to the wrist. They are comfortable to wear, and the padding is sufficient to reduce felt blows. My main complaint is the difficulty in putting them on.. It is fairly difficult to do by yourself, and can leave the cuff loose, or off kilter.
