Great jacket great service. June 6, 2016
Reviewer: Taylor Jenkins from Henderson, NV United States  
Jacket is an excellent blend of mobility and coverage,  It is obviously the standard of the sport for a reason. Also purpleheartarmoury's service was top notch with emailing me quickly about questions I had. They shipped the jacket as soon as they received the order and got the jacket to me in just 4 business days!

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).
