Lamellar upper arm

The lamellar upper arms documented here are an extension of the lamellar. They do not correspond to any Viking Age find, but they are quite practical.

The overlap is from top to bottom, so that blows can slide off. And from the middle to the outside, because as a spearman I usually stand with one side in front and so the thrusts can slide off. For a melee fighter, an overlap from front to back is more appropriate.
