Our arm armour comes in a variety of different shapes and styles, ranging from the typical arm armour that was used in suits of knights armour to the more common protections that a typical medieval soldier might have worn. Each and every piece of armour you'll find here is steel armour, featuring either plates of shaped steel or lengths of steel to provide the best protection possible for your arms.

We offer our functional arm armour in a variety of different styles that were prevalent during the medieval era, ranging from the jack chains that the infantry and the foot soldiers typically wore to the different styles of plate armour that knights wore, ranging from gothic armour of German knights to the Milanese armour Churburg armour of Italian make.
