The toughest armguards you will ever find. Made from Horween Cordovan and backed with high grade pigskin. 

Genuine Cordovan is the art of tanning at its finest.  More than just a color, it is a very specific leather, from a particular part of a horsehide.  The irregular oval shaped shells are tanned, stuffed, shaved, and then polished – a process taking at least six months.  Each is slowly steeped in gentle vegetable liquors. Dyes are hand rubbed on for a deep aniline finish. Finally, the shells are hand glazed to achieve the rich, glossy look and feel prized by fine craftsmen.

Hand made in Northern Michigan, this leather armguard is stiff at first, but it will form to your arm and hold its shape better than thin leather ever could. It quickly attaches with high-quality shock cord. Silent leather bottom button and real deer antler top button. 

Each leather armguard comes equipped with a 3/4" diameter liquid filled compass, which is in the perfect position for easy viewing while making a stalk or navigating your way out of the woods. Leather is a product of nature, so no two will look exactly the same. Approximately 9" H x 7" L. Comes water proofed with natural waxes, which should be reapplied seasonally - we recommend Fiebings Snow Proof Paste

Drifter Tip: Where this around the house or in the car for a week or so, take it off and flex it by hand you'll be amazed how quick they break in and take the shape of your arm. The compasses are extra helpful and in the perfect location to look at (hands free) walking out of or into the woods in the dark.
