    I'm having an issue with my gauntlets. During trooping they get pushed down to my wrists and cause pain and my thumb to go numb within an hr of wearing. By the end of the event I have raw spots on my wrists for weeks. Does anyone know what I can do to keep them pushed higher on my arms so I'll have more hand movement and less pain?

    Have you tried padding the inside to keep them from slipping down as much?

    Foam usually does the trick.

    Another way is Velcro. The same way as you do the knee pads. as long as they are aligned right they shouldn't drop down, being attached to your sleeve
