Good Basic Protection November 23, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Annapolis, MD  
This product provides good basic protection at a reasonable cost. Unless you are going for something with an historical look, then these would be a great option.

Goodish November 21, 2016
Reviewer: Tony H from Plainfield, IN United States  
these are really 2 products in 1.
- The elbow guards work great with the axel jacket. Not much to say other than these are suggested on their own.
- The forearm guards I feel are a bit too long and ride into the gloves too far. I would prefer that these where about 2/3 to 1/2 the length and a bit less bulky. I prefer another design of harder plastic protection with the string pull system.

Velcro portion of strap could be longer November 7, 2016
Reviewer: KKM from MN United States  
Overall good protection. As a female, I wish the Velcro portion of the strap was longer, so I could cinch them tighter. They have a tendency to slide down and bind up my gloves at the wrist. I generally have to redo them a couple times during a 90 min class. I consider this an acceptable trade-off for the level of protection offered. My husband has less issue with this as his forearms are larger.

SPES Forearm and Elbow Guards V2.0 November 7, 2016
Reviewer: Erik "Ulrich" Baumann from NY, United States  
After several weeks of almost daily use I must say these are a great buy and a must have for HEMA practice. They go on easy, are comfortable (assuming you are where a long sleeve shirt), and offer great protection. I even tried them out against blunted steel feder and they fared quite well.

All in all I highly recommend these to anyone seriously looking into Western Martial Arts.

Hoped this helped with your purchase and good luck,

Ulrich
