Epic, all-in-one, upper body protection!! November 7, 2016
Reviewer: Tim Meade from Colorado Springs, CO United States  
Despite being one of the most expensive jackets in the HEMA world, this jacket it is well worth its price.  Esthetics aside (which happen to be awesome) the base SPES Axel Jacket is exceptionally well fitting from the hips to the neck and down to the wrists.  The jacket design enables quick on-off access, with well thought-out over lapping Velcro seams to avoid  damage to the zipper while providing an addition layer of protection.  The collar with sword catch is one more bonus feature. The jacket fabric is very strong and well padded throughout.  The leather torso cover provides a final layer of strike protection.  The coupe de gras on this jacket is the hard shell shoulder to wrist protection.  Four discrete, removable, molded plastic plates are shaped to avoid interference with each other during arm movement while minimizing exposed gaps.  For aggressive sparing where strong strikes to the arms and torso are likely, this jacket addresses almost every one of the fighter's concerns.

Great quality July 23, 2016
Reviewer: Caleb Eck from Danville, PA United States  
So far I've only had maybe less than 20 hours sparring time in this jacket. It is great. All the "armor" plates are removable, which I opted to do. The jacket is stiff at first, but quickly loosens up after you get a few hours in wearing it. Fantastic quality and really takes impacts well. I recommend it to anyone. And as always, Purpleheart's customer service in unparalleled. I am very thankful to have them.

Review - Fencing Gloves Purchase April 12, 2016
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.
