  1. I bought myself very cheap and simple black leather bracers (~15€), the type that tie only with a string. I intent to wear them next time the roads are slippery in order to prevent scratches on my arm, as my jacket didn't do anything to prevent that. These bracers slide constantly up and down as it is really difficult to put tension on the string and it is easy to overdo it for a comfortable and tight fit.

    1. @adiwan Research I should have done earlier say that is normal that they slide and don't fit right away. Either they have to be worn long enough that they mold to the arm shape and create more friction area, or some cloth or else is worn under the bracers, or the bracers are tied/sewn to the worn shirt.

      1. @adiwan I got a pair of leather bracers for LARP, they definitely have seemed to fit better over time. I usually have the sleeves of my puffy shirt tucked into them, so that probably helps, too, but I also mostly only do it that way because the inner side of the eyehole brass thingies that you run the lace through are irritating directly on my arm

        1. @scribus As a 100 % T-shirt wearer I feel that what you mean. Right now it's the rough side of the leather that feels a little scratchy as well as the stitching.
