SPES AP Fencing Jacket 350N Version 2.0

This fencing jacket was designed with the help and suggestions of Axel Pettersson to serve the needs of the Swedish schools of historical fencing (Gothenburg Historical Fencing School in particular).

The jacket has become a standard in the HEMA community.

Reviewer: Jeremy from Peru, IN  
Ordered custom size, and it was well worth the wait. Fits beautifully. Delivered in just under 8 weeks, so the shipping estimate was indeed accurate.

Very Satisfied with Jacket October 2, 2018
Reviewer: Martin Nader from Nebraska - United States  
The jacket provides good protection and doesn’t limit my movement. It’s a good jacket for longsword. I bought an XL and I am 6’4”, 250 pounds (1.93 m, 115 kg, 18 st). Finding the right size can be a challenge for me, but this XL jacket fits great.

Great first longsword jacket September 4, 2018
Reviewer: Isaac Goodfellow from Vancouver, WA United States  
I've only done "Jogging" sparring sessions with this jacket but I've been very impressed with it so far. You feel blows but they don't hurt like they do when you're wearing just a sweatshirt, meaning you can train for longer. Mobility is fine, and seams are well placed for movement. Raising your arms over your head does not make the jacket ride up and expose your stomach. When it arrives it is very stiff, I had to wash it once to make it supple enough to even begin breaking it in.  If I had any improvements it would be some sort of ventilation, this thing gets very hot, especially in conjunction with Spes Locust pants. I got a large, and find it actually fairly tight in the arms / shoulders despite not having a very large frame. If you have broad shoulders I would prioritize your size off that, or get a custom size.
