Bracers of armor were magical armor pieces for the forearms that protected the wearer with an invisible field of force that acted as a source of armor for his or her whole body.[1]


Most bracers of armor appeared to be a pair of normal bracers.[1]


They could come in a wide range of power levels, ranging from protection equivalent to the wearing of padded armor to the defensive capabilities of full plate mail.[1][2] The power of the bracers only manifested if both members of the pair were worn at the same time.[1]

Some bracers of armor, such as the Bracers of the Blinding Strike, came with additional powers.[3]
