Dawnguard Heavy Gauntlets are a piece of heavy armor and part of the Dawnguard Heavy Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Dawnguard.
They are visually identical to the light armor variant and are worn by several members of the Dawnguard.
This piece is given by Gunmar if the Dawnguard is joined. They may later be bought, along with the other pieces from him.
If the Harkon's court has been joined, they can only be obtained from various members of the Dawnguard, such as Dawnguard Vampire Hunters and Dawnguard Scouts.
It can be upgraded with steel ingot at a workbench and also benefits from the Advanced Armors perk, which doubles the improvement.
