This leather is treated with special oils and waxes to make it soft and comfortable. Initially designed to help a customer cover up an objectionable tattoo on his forarm while he was at work. The width is 7 inches. When you order I'll need your wrist size and also a measurement of your forearm 7 inches from your wrist for a proper fit. Seven nickel-plated snaps secure this gantlet to your arm. Great for riding or for just plain cool! Also good for protecting your arms while welding or shooting your bow and arrow. The default color is black. If you want cocoa brown indicate so in the "special instructions" field.
