Bracers of Defense
Rare wondrous item
Property: If you wear these bracers while wearing no other armor and using no shield, your AC is 13 + your Dexterity modifier.
These wide metal bracelets each bear a single symbol: a kite shield of burnished silver. The bracers have hinges that allow them to be clasped and unclasped, and they magically tighten to fit snugly on their wearer’s forearms. When first donned, they briefly shine with soft light that spreads across the wearer’s body before fading away.
