Chest range is the measurement taken at the armpit level in front (it is half of the chest girth).

Chest Range and Hips Range is the jacket's size after folding it in half in this points. Probably not very useful. Use the other dimensions and the jackets usually fit very well.

New model of Axel Pettersson Fencing Jacket is a combination of wearing comfort with high level of protection. The design is based on previous model (1.1), highly valued among the historical fencing devotees.

It is equipped with fasteners for mounting an additional protection – detachable, specially schaped, plastic pads. It lets you use the jacket as a full protection without necessity of wearing additional protectors. You save your time which you may spent for training instead of waisting it for the preparing.

To increase the protection level the jacket has additional layer of leather in front, attached with Velcro tapes. It improves the effectiveness of protection without lessening the wearing comfort.

Also the collar has been changed, redesigned to make it more fit-to-shape of the body. We added an additional mounting for leather front plate – a torso protector against the stubs. As in previous model collar has a blade-catcher to keep larynx safe.

Thanks to the new design, the Axel Pettersson Fencing Jacket PRO is perfect, comprehensive protection recommended to all historical fencing devotees. It offers high level of protection along with very good wearing comfort letting users fully enjoy the fights and trainings.

The set includes: jacket, leather front and plastic pads (8 pcs).

Main features:
- zipper and Velcro fastening
- additional arm protector fasteners
- mounting point for leather torso plate
- blade-catcher
- additional leather torso plate
- shape designed for high level of mobility

02/2013 - Zipper has been replaced by new, much stronger type.

Reviewer: David Scruggs from Ashburn, VA United States  
Very positive buying experience.  Had the product in-stock, shipped fast, arrived quickly.  When I realized I ordered the wrong size, I notified Purpleheart, they shipped the right size the same day.  Very happy with the product.

Like heavy armor August 28, 2015
Reviewer: Michael Crosby from Minnetrista, MN United States  
I have yet to use my new Pro jacket but it is a solid piece of equipment.  This jacket is very stiff when brand new but it should loosen a bit with use.  Excellent overall protection and, while stiff, it seems to allow for decent maneuverability.  The only down side is that my intermediate group does not seem to have many metal blades and this is overkill for synthetic.  I am excited to use my new jacket this weekend.
