Love the jacket, love the colour! October 16, 2017
Reviewer: Devon Garden from Edmonton, AB Canada  
Right out of the package the medium fit perfect! The extra bulk in the armpits makes hanging guards and other overhead work simple and the material provides great protection.  I got the standard red and it's simply gorgeous.
I have been practicing Fabris rapier and there are some pretty strenuous positions and movements and I haven't felt hindered.

Fencing Jacket September 23, 2017
Reviewer: Samuel Szymanski from Santa Clarita, CA United States  
The jacket arrived on time and I'm excited to start using it! I didn't opt for the custom-tailored size, getting a standard sized one of these seemed to be my cheapest option and I think it's well worth the price!

Fits quite nicely September 16, 2017
Reviewer: Kody Manastyrski from Saskatoon, SK Canada  
I bought this jacket in a bit of a rush, and simply grabbed my usual size (XL). This fit me better than expected, and (mostly) fits under my gloves. The jacket has great flexibility, and provides good protection.

Great Quality for an entry level HEMA Jacket July 7, 2017
Reviewer: Harold Vance from Fairfax, VT United States  
The AP is still fairly the standard of quality for Longsword and other historical fencing.  The improvements I will be looking for in a future jacket are only more breathability, and less shoulder-movement restriction (though this tends to ease up as the jacket is broken in).
