I bought one of Mark's arm guards because I have not been happy with anything I have found on the market up to this point. I have tried everything from cheap arm guards to very expensive arm guards that I hate to admit I paid for. Finally, the Marksman arm guard fits the bill for the perfect combination of features. It's relatively thin, lightweight, and the perfect flexibility of leather. Other attachment methods are complicated, cumbersome, and uncomfortable. Other arm guards have stitching or rough areas that abrade my bow strings. the Marksman arm guard solves all of those issues. The low profile hardware is ingenious, as is the shock-cord length adjustment system. It's so easy to put on and the flexible leather wraps and shapes to my arm perfectly. At the end of the day it's a beautiful arm guard with a high degree of craftsmanship and attention to detail. I'm in the USA and took a chance ordering this across the globe. Well worth it and highly recommended.
