I've never owned a pair of bracers before, or anything similar. These bracers are nicely snug, whilst allowing free hand movement. Its a great design. Makes me feel very fancy.
I greatly enjoy Volante Design's style. I'm, unfortunately, not someone that likes to stand out. A lot of the accessory pieces have looked too much like a "cosplay" piece to me and not something I could see myself wearing day to day; just too bold for me. So when the simpler Vanguard Bracers came out, I decided to give them a try. And I've been pleasantly surprised! They are quite comfortable, the canvas material feels good, and it leaves the hands free to be functional. They've also been a useful piece of clothing for the in between seasons weather to give my hands a little extra protection and warmth without being too much or restrictive. And to top it off, it fits with my watch still on my wrist. It's that little bit extra Volante standout style but not too much that I feel like a fictional character in the real world. I picked up the Havana version as an all around color and while I won't be picking up as many as I do their vests, I'd be interested in seeing more colors to tempt me into another set.
Sadly, I bought the vest and bracers together in the same style,but somehow the bracers were lost. Still got some Havana ones but not the same.
I've long been a fan of Volante forearm items (Talons, Tekko, Augment G1, etc.), but, moreso, I love Volante coats and jackets, which feature this innovative design element known as "sleeves". Those "sleeves" can get in the way of wearing the aforementioned forearm gear items. Now, here are the Vanguard Bracers! Now I can display an extra pop of matching or complementing color without having to go to all the trouble of taking a pair of shears and cutting off the bottom half of the sleeves of all my coats! These are going to save me so much money on coat re-purchases!
Love these things
They pair well with other outfits. Comfortable and great quality!
