For SCA use? January 26, 2017
Reviewer: Randall Nez from Tuba City, AZ United States  
A great basis for Society for Creative Anachronism heavy armor elbows. The elbow cops need some padding and it comes with holes for mounting a rerebrace to the upper arm. If your handy at crafting this should be no problem.

Great forearm protection December 12, 2016
Reviewer: Jerrod Miller from Spokane, WA United States  
The only downside to these is that the elbow guard is a bit un-padded for use without a jacket.  A removable pad that keeps it from digging into the soft spots on either side of the elbow would make this outstanding.

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.
