Leather vambraces are leather armour worn on the hands. With no requirements to equip, they are most commonly used by low-level rangers, and often mages (as there is no magic penalty). Overall they are generally a superior alternative to leather gloves and could be considered the best "gloves" for free-to-play users who lack 40 Ranged to equip green dragonhide vambraces.
Players can create leather vambraces through the Crafting skill at level 11 from a soft leather, granting 22 Crafting experience. Kebbit claws can be used on any vambraces to make spiked vambraces which, when worn, raise your strength bonus by two. A Crafting level of 32 is required in order to make any vambraces into spiked vambraces.
