This fencing jacket was designed with the help and suggestions of Axel Pettersson, to serve the needs of the Swedish schools of historical fencing ("Gothenburg Historical Fencing School" in particular). The jacket closes in front (see the picture) with the help of a zipper and velcro. On the front of the collar, there is a broad overlap which closes with velcro. The sleeves are specially designed for better arm movement. Also, there are additional protective layers on the chest, shoulders and elbows. The layers of fabric (from the outside) are: 2 layers of cotton, one protective layer, and 1 layer of cotton lining. The jacket was tested at many seminars since 9/11/11 by Axel Pettersson and others.

Upgrade from a fencing uniform May 3, 2016
Reviewer: Shane Hinckley from Denver, CO United States  
Awesome protection for rapier fencing was still getting nicks and scrapes with a fencing jacket on but no more with this thing. It is still breaking in so i am using a long sleeve poly shirt with a turtle neck to stay cool in and prevent the seems rubbing on the skin. This occurs inside the elbow and on the neck. i expect that this will be less of an issue when it relaxes.

Takes some getting used to May 2, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
It does its job, but it's an adjustment. Very stiff and unyielding, which makes movement slow and uncomfortable. Hopefully that will be less of an issue with use.

Works April 29, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Berthoud, CO United States  
There is really no other option at this price for serious  Hema practice.  It fits, is maneuverable, and protects well for its weight.  The only problems I have is that it's not as maneuverable as wearing nothing and that's just going to happen with any armor (Ox in this jacket + helmet is definitely a hurdle to get over).
