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.

Great Protection October 6, 2016
Reviewer: Kevin Leighton from Clifton Park, NY United States  
Quite the upgrade from my hockey gloves.  No more blackened fingernails here.   Only downside is that I barely know when my hands get hit :)

very effective September 14, 2016
Reviewer: brandon from jim thorpe, PA United States  
the amount of protection offered by these gloves is remarkable! they absorb full force shots to the hand with no difficulty or discomfort. They are a bit stiff when brand new, but once broken in they are quite pliable. I do recommend a fingertip protector for the thumb, as it is possible to sneak a hit under the plating there.

Crab people gloves for the win August 25, 2016
Reviewer: Steven Vasquez from Tulsa , OK United States  
I used lacrosse gloves for years, got my first smashed knuckle and finally stepped up to these gloves. You get full movement in the wrist and will protect your hands from those well placed hand strikes
