SPES Lobster Heavy Gloves Version 1.0 - Pair

The SPES Heavies are designed to protect your hands from injury during training in historical fencing. These gloves provide full coverage for all five fingers in a lobster design.

The pockets are separated into a thumb slot, index and middles finger slot, and ring and pinkie fingers slot.

Thanks to these heavy gloves, training with heavy weapons, feders, and dussacks is much safer.

See Sizing tab for more information.

  • The outside part of the palm and fingers are protected by the overlapping plastic elements made of polypropylene. Polypropylene has high resistance to cracking, which guarantees a higher durability.
  • The 11cm fabric cuff is reinforced by six plates covered with leather in order to protect the wrist bones.
  • A leather belt with buckle enables manual adjustment of the glove at the wrist for a better fit.
  • The inner part of the gloves is covered with synthetic leather.
  • The quilting on the gloves provides additional amortization against strikes to the hand.

Poor design April 28, 2017
Reviewer: Russ from Fort Collins, CO United States  
The right shot, with the right angle can destroy a thumb, or your wrist bones.  These gloves are bulky, as they should be, but leave your thumb vulnerable and your two major wrist bones vulnerable.   Mitten style gauntlets have been being made for centuries... and apparently Spes figured they would just ignore them and start from scratch, without considering the actual needs of the glove.

Bulky: check!
Protective: ... Lets just skip this part...

Love these gloves. Have used others in the past and can't wait to use these this weekend.  Highly recommended for full contact HEMA.

Second pair. April 20, 2017
Reviewer: Harold Parlee from Edmonton, AB Canada  
A friend and i have been making do with knee-pad augmented hockey gloves for a year. When I finally bit the bullet and got the SPES Heavies, I had a pit in my stomach for spending so much on gloves. After using them, for about a month, I consider them quite a bargain. Ordered another pair for my fencing partner. Great product, fast delivery.

Great April 20, 2017
Reviewer: Michael Roth from kansas city, MO United States  
I feel like they fit well. I haven't had a chance to test them out, I will tonight. I hear nothing but the best for these, as far as protection goes. I do think it might limit dexterity some but that's a trade I will gladly make.

SPES Heavy: Restrictive, but Protective April 13, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The SPES Heavy gauntlets are pretty difficult to maneuver in (as was expected) but there is no denying their ability to stop my fingers from getting broken.
