Elbow length gauntlet
I am interested in putting together a steam punk themed glove that will have a couple gauges and some piping attached to the back of it. I'm envisioning a readout system a steam punk engineer could use while testing and repairing things. I plan to use an elbow length glove of some sort as the base. I think the best materials to use would be heavy canvas or leather.
I would honestly prefer to purchase the glove and then attach materials for mounting the hardware. The challenge I have run into is that I have not been able to find men's gloves that are elbow length and made of material that could support a bit of weight.
I can craft my own straps to better secure the gauntlet against shifting, but the base material needs to be sturdy enough. I will make the glove myself if need be, I would just prefer to avoid it if I can. This is where my request comes in. My google-fu seems to have failed me. They need to be men's gloves since I am 6 ft with hands that are not small. If any of you can recommend a good site to check out, or suggest alternatives, I would appreciate it!
