You move quickly, navigating the treacherous terrain. The rains have washed out the roads and made traveling difficult, taking any trails and footprints along with it. On one hand this has made your job challenging as a scout, but it’s also slowed down any normal party traveling ahead.
Thanks to your simple and lightweight gear, including your Scouts Gauntlets, you manage to spot trouble long before they could spot you. You’ll head back and tell your own group about the upcoming bandits.
Epic Armoury’s Scouts Gauntlets are a set of mild steel gloves designed to protect the wrist, back of the hand and forearm in combat without sacrificing all manoeuvrability. Each gauntlet consists of three overlapping plates, secured together using a sturdy, but flexible strap of leather. The 10 cm wide hand plate and short vambrace are made from 1mm steel, forged to fit comfortably over the first knuckles and around the curve of the arm. The vambrace is 11 cm wide at the wrist, and increases to 20 cm around the forearm. The top 11 cm wide plate is made of thicker 1.5mm steel, shaped so that it won’t rub uncomfortably against your rotating wrists.
These Scouts Gauntlets fits comfortably over your own leather gloves, secured with a leather band around the palm, thumb, and wrist. Made from mild steel with rolled edges, these demi gauntlets are practical and affordable. With its low-fantasy and neutral appearance, these Scouts Gauntlets are easily paired with other Epic Armoury metal works.

Natural leather products are very durable, but require regular maintenance with leather care products to stay flexible and to increase
It is best to start cleaning leather from the most delicate measures possible. Therefore, use a damp cloth with a little soap. If this is not enough - use a hard brush to remove dirt. Remove the soap with a separate damp cloth to wipe away any soap residue, and then use a dry cloth to wipe away the remaining water from the leather. Let it dry completely before the next maintenance step.
Always keep the leather maintenance after cleaning, because the soap will remove some of its natural oils. Apply mink oil, olive oil or professional lanolin-based fats to clean leather using a clean cloth, gently rubbing a small amount of fat with circular movements. Wait for the fat to soak in the leather, then use a clean cloth to clog the residue. For maintenance, you can also use beeswax by heating it to a liquid state and applying it to the leather. Remember that the leather so preserved will be harder and significantly darken what sometimes is the desired effect.
