I really love this arm guard/shooting glove combo! I am putting together a ranger costume for cosplay and renaissance festival garb. This beautifully made piece is a good start. I ordered this thinking it wouldn't arrive on time for me to wear to this weekend's renaissance festival on my birthday, but happily, it came with two days to spare. I fired a couple of arrows with my son's bow to give the guard some good break-in scuffs and I was able to shoot off the glove comfortably. I hope to get years of use from this piece; time will tell how durable it is.
