The Visby hourglass gloves with leather are stylised gloves for the mid-14th century.

“Hourglass” gloves usually have one large plate covering the outside of the hand and partially thumb. Steel cuff, which expands, closes the gap between the glove and the bracer, and gives the mitten the characteristic hourglass shape.

In this model, solid anatomical plate protects your hand and knuckles, and the side plate covers the base of the thumb. Fingers are protected by small plates lying on top of each other with overlapping. The gap between the wrist band and the glove is closed with a brigandine cuff.

“Hourglass” is fastened with 3 leather straps around the wrist, so that it  better fixed and fits well your hand. A leather glove is sewn inside. Unlike the cloth option, it is more durable and it will be more convenient for you to hold a weapon in it.

This model is made of hardened steel. We add to this product rondels (fingershields) for fingers protection, which you can hold by the leather strap.

They are perfect for reconstruction, for sport they will be good as a glove under the shield for greater protection of the hand.
