Such arm and shoulder guards were generally used by conscripts and in the late Middle Ages, who could not afford an expensive plate armor. The deployment in later periods is documented by Border Reivers at the northern border of England and Scotland. Such rather primitive guards were able to effectively prevent severe cuts on the arms and shoulders as they were attached to the arm line, which is prone to cutting attacks in combat.
