I ordered 3 of these armguards, one in each color. My two kids (ages 8 and 6) and I all shoot recurves. I am a short gal 5’2″, so I figured one of these would work for me as well.
First, this looks to be well made. Comfy wide straps with easy to use, adjustable buckles. The material of the main body is athletic mesh, the type you find on high-end running shoes. On the outside of the armguard (the side that will take the abuse from occasional string slaps), there is an extra layer of tougher black mesh. This is why the colors look darker in the “stock” photos. The actual colors of these armguards are blaze orange, lime green, and bright fuschia. The mesh looks and feels like it will breathe well in hot weather, which beats most of the leather/plastic armguards I have seen. It’s the same mesh as my running shoes, and they breathe great.
The only reason I did not give this item 5 stars is the size. When this says “Youth” armguard, they mean “teenage”, not “child” size. I am adding a couple photos, by which the rulers I laid out can show that the size is better suited to a teen or a small adult.
I will add, I have been a “serious” competitive archer for years, and I have seen my share of armguards. If your string is hitting your armguard more than 1-2 times a day (even for a kid!) , find a coach to help you work on your form- the armguard isn’t the problem.

Top Critical Review


The product is put together well from a wearable perspective, the elastic straps are cheap but it does its job staying on your arm.

Onto the archery side of things this is probably the worst, keep in mind I??m an amateur and a lefty, but while my form has it??s areas of improvement, I don??t tend to get a whole lot of string slap.

When I used this armguard within only about a week??s worth of shooting, the rough nylon webbing or the raised seams on the center strip had begun to fray my string fibers just below the serving, even though I had just waxed/inspected it before I started shooting the armguard. Same day literally.
Had to buy and setup a new string and chucked this thing in the trash. I use a smooth nylon plastic armguard now, no problems with the string interacting with it.
