Functional Full Arm Armour

Functional full arm armour can consist of a few different pieces, or of one composite whole. Either way, though, you can certainly bet that all the pieces of full arm armour you find here at Dark Knight Armoury will all have one thing in common, and that is that they provide almost complete and total protection to your arm when worn. However, not all full arm protection is created equal. Most pieces of full arm armour consist of three individual pieces of plate metal that are secured together and worn as a composite whole, providing protection to the upper and lower arm, as well as the elbow. Others are a bit more singular, like our Roman pieces, which are single pieces of armor that cover the whole arm in plates or scales to protect it from attacks. Other pieces, like the jack chains used by infantry, offer a bit of protection without covering the arms and weighing you down when they are worn. As you can see, our full arm armour comes in a variety of styles, and so it is up to you decide what level of protection you desire. Our full arm armour is typically crafted in either 16 or 18 gauge steel, making them perfect for use in in SCA reenactments and LARP battles. A set of functional full arm armour from Dark Knight Armoury is a step in the right direction if you are looking to gear up in a full suit of plate armor, or, in the very least, keep your arms as well-defended as they could possibly be.
