Neyman Fencing arm & leg protection versus SPES

Postby Fortigurn » 01 Feb 2016 00:18

I have a set of SPES arm and leg protection. It's very solid, and offers a high level of protection. The leg protection fits neatly under my chausses, and the arm protection fits under my gambeson (restricting my movement only slightly).

However, it is quite bulky, and I am interested in finding something with a similar level of protection and less bulk. I am wondering what the Neyman Fencing arm and leg protection is like. It is apparently made of "hardened styrogum", but I have no idea what that is. It does look thinner, lighter, and less bulky than the SPES protection, which interests me.
