Description Sizing

HEMA protectors made of styrogum. These forearm protectors have some special, elastic velcro straps. Straps help in keeping the styrogum protectors in the shape given by the user. In practice, our “Light” Forearm Protectors are an elastic HEMA protective gear, fitting every forearm. Straps also ensure a proper fitting to the jacket.

NOTE! Product is provided unfolded. It has a shape memory and user folds it on his own in a form suitable for oneself before first use. After the training with the styrogum protectors, user should put them away in a folded form, with fastened straps. It will prevent the forearm protectors from losing a given shape, what can happen after a longer time without using.

The features of protectors.

Styrogum is characterized by both high durability and resistance to hits. Our forearm protectors are also very flexible, what makes them easy in fitting to the user's arms.

Material of these shields provides an alternative solution in the category of HEMA protective gear. Their shape can be modified and matched to user's needs. What is more, “Light” Forearm Protectors are convenient. They don't bother the movement and don't have any elements which could disturb the user during the fight.

In comparison to “Vectir” Forearm Protectors, these are lighter, shorter, and narrower. There is a possibility of increasing the level of protection with “Shell” Elbow Protectors. These can be easily mounted to the Velcro tapes on the inside of the protectors.

5 of 5 Good Forearm Protectors June 7, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Virginia, United States  
Having used both the VECTIR and Geko style SPES forearms, I would recommend these over the other two models, especially if your forearms are on the smaller side. These are significantly lighter and less bulky, and they're sufficiently protective for longsword sparring, even when used on a jacket with minimal forearm padding, such as the SPES light.

There's a bit of effort in getting them in shape at first, though they shape well enough after a bit of time. There is a bit of a rubbery odor that comes off these, though it's not unexpected given the material.

5 of 5 Best forearms ever made October 28, 2021
Reviewer: Tony from British Columbia  
I bought this from spes originally when you could only get it from the spes labs. It's crazy light and I feel nothing wearing it. I can use this for any weapons including longsword. My jacket has no padding on the forearms either, and it can take Longsword hits with easy. Because this isn't hard plastic, you'll actually feel the pressure of impact. So it's a great feedback that you got hit but none of the pain. The Best part about the material is that is won't shatter like traditional arm guards. So this is a long term investments. I was tried of buying a new pair of arm guards every year.
