Iron Gauntlets are a piece of heavy armor and part of the Iron Armor set found in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.


Enchanted and unenchanted variants begin to appear throughout Skyrim at level 1. These locations include:



Iron Gauntlets require no prerequisite Smithing level or perks to forge. They can be crafted at a blacksmith's forge with the following components:

They can be upgraded with a Iron Ingot at a workbench, however they do not benefit from any smithing perks.
