Unfortunately inadequate without additional padding. It looks fantastic, though.

Get this Hoodie October 30, 2017
Reviewer: Jeff Kim from Troy, New York  
1.) As a standalone, it is perfect for (very) light steel sparring as well as foam/gekken trainer sparring. Obviously for the former a mask and gloves (LAX minimum) would help :p.

2.) As Josh Parise said, you can steel spar at standard intensity with these. HOWEVER, for those of us lacking his natural toughness some supplemental elements would be recommended.  There are numerous gaps on the hoodie which are nicely filled by the following:

A.) Collarbone and Throat Gap: (The neck padding on its own is too thin) The PBT Standard Gorget

B.) Upper Torso Gap: Standard AF Chest Protector or PBT Chest Protector

C.) Lower Torso Gap: SPES Locust/ Hussar Pants, DMZ Fight Knickers, or other purpose-made HEMA pants

D.) Forearm Gap: DMZ Kool Bean Forearm Guards. (The Kool Beans cover the outer forearms while the internal padding covers the inner forearms)

3.) You feel less vulnerable during your transits through shady parts of town.

4.) Repeat: Get this hoodie.
