Best Archery Arm Guards 2023

[Updated 1 July 2022] The Archery Arm Guards feature a cool mesh back for comfort and an ergonomic shape that conforms to the arm without sliding around. The elastic straps are soft and wide, to keep from pinching, and the buckles are easy to clip/unclip or adjust with one hand without having to remove the armguard. The armguard also features a heavy-duty strip down the center that will take the abuse from your bow, instead of your arm.

Features to be Considered

The armguard, unlike many archery gears, is rather straightforward. However, there are a few things to consider.

Type. The most popular choice, by far, is the standard leather slab (and that’s the one I use most). Compression sleeves and full-coverage protectors, on the other hand, are excellent alternatives. I know several people who won’t use anything else. Both approaches are effective, so it’s all about personal preference.

Material. You want your armguard to be a robust item. Choose something that can endure a lot of use and abuse. Then, once you’ve found a material that works for you, make sure you’re properly wearing it.

Fit. This is more of a problem with archery gloves, but it’s worth considering when purchasing an arm guard. Armguards are often adjustable, so they fit your arm size. If you dislike ill-fitting or misshapen clothes or if an appearance rubbing against your skin is going to drive you crazy, you may want something that fits you perfectly. They’ll fit perfectly, and you won’t have to worry about redoing them all the time.

Look. Most armguards are pretty decent, and you just need to discover anything that appeals to you. Fortunately, there are several alternatives available, such as brown leather and suede (ideal for anyone), camo (great for hunters and outdoor enthusiasts), and various colors (black, red, blue, pink, etc.) with various forms ranging from the traditional shape that wraps around your forearm to sleeves that extend over your entire arm. There’s no such thing as the “correct” version; it’s simply whatever you like the look of.
