Duelist's Buckler (5e Equipment)

|Cost||Armor Class (AC)||Strength||Stealth||Weight|
|20 gp||+1||-||-||3 lb.|
A duelist's buckler functions as an off-hand weapon for a user of a single handed weapon. The buckler can be held in one hand or strapped to a forearm to offer protection by essentially turning an arm into a piece of armor capable of blocking ranged and melee attacks, though not offering true cover, as a shield would. A buckler can be wielded alongside a singlehanded weapon with or without the versatile property. If it is wielded by a versatile weapon, a character may make an attack with the weapon using it's 2 handed property without losing the benefit from their buckler. Unlike a shield, a buckler does not inhibit a characters ability to wield a weapon, so using one does not count as wielding a weapon in each hand.
