SPES AP Women's Fencing Jacket 350N Version 3.0

This women's model of the Axel Pettersson Fencing jacket is a product designed on and based off of the male version. SPES redesigned the jacket to be suitable to the shape of women.

All the features of the male model have been retained. The only difference is the fitted style.

Check the sizing chart carefully.

When checking out using the Custom Size option, include your measurements (according to the Sizing chart) in the Comment section during checkout. In Centimeters and NO punctuation please.

See Sizing tab for more information.

• changed cut, which is better fitted for women's body
• wider range of measurements in order to choose suitable size easier
• additional possibility to adjust the jacket at the belt due to the fastening strap at the back

SPES Axel Jacket - Women's 350N V3.0 January 24, 2017
Reviewer: Sheena Haug from Edmonton, AB Canada  
I was so glad to find a women's gambeson. I had this one custom made, and while it took longer than originally quoted, it is absolutely worth it.
The jacket is stiff and snug, but comfortable. The velcro and front zipper make it easy to put on.

The only issue I have with it is that the armholes are cut a bit high; I am sure this is to accommodate movement of the arms, but I find the thick seams can rub a bit. Not a big deal, just need to make sure I wear a top with sleeves underneath it. I think the gambeson will become more comfortable as it is broken in.

Good Jacket November 21, 2016
Reviewer: Tony H from Plainfield, IN United States  
We got the new revised version of this jacket with the upgraded features. The jacket fits well in most places and with the pull strap on the back it allows for a comfortable snug fit.
The main issue right now seems to be the inner elbow is a bit tight and rubs so that when she turns her arm in it rubs a lot. This can be compensated with an elbow guard to help prevent the rubbing but think there could be a bit of extra space in this area to more reflect the male jacket.
