Padded Fencing Gloves
SCA armoured combat leather gloves
We've received many inquiries on inner leather gloves during all those years that we produce steel gauntlets. Until today, we were not ready to make them for sale because of our high quality requirements. Now we dare to say we had reached a great level of expertise, and these leather armor gloves are definitely the best on the market.
Obviously, gambeson was the main element of the padding protection for a warrior in the Medieval era, but not the only. The gloves were also a part of a full protective armament. Clumsy and bulky padded mittens at first, with the development of the weapons they evolve into better-fitted and laced up gloves intended to absorb blows and protect of abrasions from the armor.
Articulated fingers and tactile properties of the leather allow perfect grip and flexibility, making these gloves suitable for using with both sword and polearms. Made of firmly stitched genuine leather, they are staffed with 5 mm thick foam insulating pads to protect from impacts. Extended cuffs protect the wrists. The gloves cushion and distribute the weight of the weapon.
Inner gloves worn under the gauntlets will keep your hands away from injury during both swordcraft training and fencing. These can be worn on their own for just a light layer of protection. Five-star addition to any historic armored outfit!

Pawel 29 of April 2020:
Very poor quality gloves. I've had these for less than a month and the stitching on the palm of one glove has already come apart. In the weeks I've had them, they've seen light use only, limited to solo longsword drills - they haven't even had a chance to be hit by another sword yet. My last pair of fencing gloves cost half the price and lasted through four years of heavy use. I thought I was getting an upgrade with this purchase, but was unfortunately mistaken... If you're looking to do actual fencing in your fencing gloves, I would recommend looking elsewhere.ArmStreet Team:
Dear Pawel, we are sorry to see the gloves are torn, but we would like to assure you that they can be easily fixed because it is the seam that went apart. They can be sewn back. Hope it is helpful.

Marvellous gloves ! They are thin enough for keeping a good proprioceptive feeling with your sword and the protection is for light sparing and experimentation! There is just a terrible problem: the colour ! Your hands are the same colour then the gloves at the end of the training, very pity ! All the rest is perfect.

Can you do custom sizing?
Hi Corey, please select custom size option in the listing.
Is there any padding directly covering the wrist bones? Thanks.
The gloves have 5 mm thick foam insulating pads to protect your hand and wrist from impacts. The cuffs are also designed specially to protect your wrist.
How thick is the leather?
The leather thickness is about 2 mm.
