SERIOUS BATTLE MAIL GAUNTLETS HERE, NOT COSTUME!
Very pleased with these!! Costume gauntlets they ARE NOT!!!
These are the real deal and very high quality. The leather gloves, the maille, the steel plates... One thing I would point out, that you might not be able to see from the picture, is the steel vambrace starting at the opening of the glove, is not one solid piece of steel, but 6 strips of steel, 3 on top, 3 underneath.
I didn't know this when I ordered them, but am GLAD they are!! It makes for a much more custom fit. I have hands that are a little bit on the "thick" side, and from the top of my middle finger to the bottom of my palm is exactly '7 inches, so I ordered Size Medium; and they fit..... Well, "Like a glove", lol.

Comfortable and offer good mobility but stiching between mail and leather has come undone slightly. Easy to repair though

I have owned a pair of these for several years. They are a quality item.

These are good for versatile hand protection & mobility, however the stitching for these have a tendency come undone from the chain mail due to extensive use, but is rather quite repairable with a couple of pliers if you know what your doing.

Great hand and arm armor at a more affordable price than plate gauntlets or vambraces. Both the mail and the leather show good craftsmanship. A friendly warning though--when gripping a sword tightly with these or swinging a sword, the mail rings might dig in to any leather around the hilt and cause slight damage.
