SPES Officers Fencing Jacket 350N

This fencing jacket was designed mostly for single hand sword work bridging the gap between the lighter JF Fencing Jacket and heavier AP Jacket. We found that the excellent protection of the AP jacket is not often needed when doing singlehand sword work, especially with a shield or sabre.

Additional Forearm/elbow guard is recommended.

When checking out using the Custom Size option, include your measurements (according to the Sizing chart in the adjacent tab) in the Comment section during checkout. Do not use punctuation and enter measurements in centimeters (it's made in Europe!) ALL 10 MEASUREMENTS MUST BE INCLUDED.

See Sizing tab for more information.

Delayed shipping February 20, 2018
Reviewer: Sharon Sue Combs from GoldenCity, MO United States  
When I ordered this item, at no time was I told i would not receive the item for two months.  This is totally unacceptable.  This company at no time advised me of the delay or contact me.  Plus they charged my card the day I ordered, so I paid for something I would not receive for two months.  Again, unacceptable!  I emailed them a few days after I ordered because I was wanting the item to give for a Christmas present, but they did not contact me back.  Very poor way to conduct business.

Sexy looking multi use jacket February 2, 2018
Reviewer: Rex Ashcraft from Tulsa, OK United States  
I purchased the Officers jacket and have been training and sparring in it for a couple of weeks now.  For anything less than a heavy saber or longsword I feel like this could be a go to jacket for someone wanting to have a single jacket to use.  Heavier weapons are doable depending on your allowance for bruises and pain response learning.  The jacket is immensely comfortable and provides great range of motion.  The neck Velcro can rub a bit but is fixable with a small modification.  Replacing the inner tie with a strap similar to the back of the jacket would be an easy improvement as well.

Looking Sharp made me sharp! January 24, 2018
Reviewer: Virgil Mathes from Phoenix, AZ United States  
This is a sharp looking jacket. When I first tried it on I thought it was too small, as it felt a bit tight. However, I realized that both the torso and sleeve are padded, and what I was feeling as tightness was simply these pads contacting each other - my range of movement wasn't compromised at all and by the time I'd had a couple of exchanges in the jacket, I forgot all about feeling tight. Well padded and the front zip is a delight after years of a back-zip jacket. The snaps look sharp, though they may be overkill between umpteen snaps and a zipper. Great throat protection and the ability to attach additional armor to elbows is welcome.  Wearing this jacket made me feel a bit like Alfred Hutton, and *I swear* I fenced better for it!

SPES Officers jacket January 17, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
Ideal rapier jacket and good saber jacket.

Dries in no time at all and keeps you bruise free. Gives you your full range of movement and you don't feel like you are fighting the jacket. I am pretty thin so I would have preferred thinner waist measurements on the stock small, but It was able to be cinched enough to properly fit me. I think the collar is a bit too tall and ends up rubbing the underside of the chin.

SPES Officers jacket November 27, 2017
Reviewer: Timothy Duefrane from University Place, WA United States  
Fit on the jacket is very nice. I like the wide cuffs which help taking the jacket off after fighting. I like belt on the back too! Would’ve liked it a bit wider but still works well. Purple Heart customer service was outstanding as I’ve experienced with previous purchases. The only negative I have on the jacket is the Velcro neck closure. Just like on my AP jacket the hook side of the Velcro is on the left flap meaning if it’s not all covered (which it isn’t if I wear my gorget under the jacket) then it rubs on the underside of my mask bib. On my older AF mask this rubbed a hole in the bib liner until I removed the hook strip from the jacket.
