As every true woman had to have little black dress in her wardrobe, so every true reenactor/warrior has to have Visby brigandine. There is an armor must-have, rough but reliable classics of European armor of the middle – 2nd part of the XIV century.

Even if there are still discussions about brigandine's reliability up to now, so perfect protective qualities and robustness of Visby brigandine gauntlets (which had been also found on island Gotland, Sweden) are beyond doubts.

Archaeologists excavated fragments of 18 gauntlets, but today we are interested only at the model, which is referred to the so-called “Type III” and “Type II” just a little.

Interesting feature of these brigandine armour gauntlets is the large plates (metacarpal, which covers base of the thumb and those, which cover knuckles), fixed over the supple leather base. Smaller plates are fixed under it. Besides, for better hands’ protection, we completed it with wristband, similar to one, which is referred to the “Type II. According to some archaeologists, this model could have such wristband, but it was lost.

If you are still deciding how to complete your brigandine armor, so these medieval brigandine gauntlets would be a perfect choice as for good hands’ protection, so for a nice opportunity to shine up to a festival.

Thick and soft leather, light and firm cold-rolled steel, steel rivets and buckles. These brigantine armour gauntlets are simple and reliable as much as brigand armor can be.

fits great, looks even better. they are very, very close to the original gauntlets, so they're great for reenactment. the fit is good, i can sign my name in them, and they are comfortable enough. as with any gauntlet, wearing them will take a lot of getting used to, but it's worth it. the straps that hold the cuff closed can be used to attach the gauntlets to your belt when not in use, which is surprisingly useful. finally, the only problems i've found are that when they arrived the leather was slightly stiff, which was fixed simply by wearing them until they formed to my hands, and that the lining glove is a little bit too short, and can get in the way occasionally. it should also be noted that this style of cuff limits wrist mobility, so if that worries you, then you may want to ask for a different style of cuff, but that is not really a problem, it's simply a fact about Visby gauntlets that one should consider before ordering. overall, i'd give them a 4.8 out of 5, almost perfect

The gauntlets are awesome. I showed a lot of people at Pennsic War and they were oh and ah about them. Another person in my practice ordered these gauntlets too. He opted for the 1.5mm steel and I got the 1.0mm titanium. I would say that the weight difference is that the titanium is at least 2 kilos lighter per glove!
The gauntlets are a really spledit piece of work. They fit really well and are very robust. The whole process of the purchase went great and without any problems. Thank you again.
