If you were looking for a premium, best value arm protector, you've found it in the Mantra Archery Guardian.
You shouldn't need an arm guard if you are able to shoot with perfect form in any situation, but a wise trad shooter knows this isn't always the case. To shoot a bow, you're essentially pulling a loaded up string back along your other arm, and if you have a momentary lapse of concentration on your form, you will get string slap no matter your experience level.
Most arm guards are chunky, padded bits of material so that when this happens you don't injure yourself, but we often get archers bringing their bows in for repair because their string has frayed where it contacted the arm guard. In an effort to avoid hitting the arm guard, you can also run into trouble by throwing your form out since you are bending your bow arm in a way to avoid any contact at all.
The Guardian offers a far sleeker design than other arm guards, with a soft leather strikeplate making up the majority of the body. It will feel like another layer of skin, and any contact with your bow string will allow it to glance off with less damage to boot.
With and elastic cord fastening system, the Guardian is one size fits all adults.
