The terms "pauldrons" and "spaulders" are often used synonymously. For the most part, I prefer to use pauldrons for shoulder protection that wraps around to the front and back of the deltoids and helps cover the armpits; and spaulders for shoulder armor that primarily protects the joint. These guys are more pauldrony than spauldery, and they're also quite good looking. 18 gauge mild steel, but the fluting adds strength to the metal. Not quite Battle of the Nations grade protection (tongue firmly in cheek here), but they're fine for light to medium contact combat, and great for "hey, those look good!" use. Fits size L/XL.
