SPES AP Light Jacket 800N New Generation

A lightweight HEMA jacket based on the AP Light 350N model. This version has enlarged pockets at the front - this gives a better cover on the chest and collarbones.

Among features like front flap, blade-catcher and amortization layers, AP Light NG 800N is characterized by its lowered weight, breathable padding, adjustable waist and extra pockets for additional foams.

The fabric used in this jacket has 800N puncture resistance. Its lining has both moisture and warm removal features, and antibacterial properties.

Sleeves in this model have velcro tapes for additional elbow overlays, like our Shell model.

Pockets for cushioning foams make this jacket easily modifiable in shoulder resistance, front and sides. This makes the jacket appropriate for HEMA trainings of both low and high intensity. It is a perfect choice for beginners as well as advanced people.

$75 Upgrade will include all the hard plate PRO Set items: Forearm/elbows and upper Arms/shoulder.

This model is all-purpose, matching the current, more demanding rules of HEMA tournaments. AP NG 800N should meet the expectations of beginners in HEMA, as well as most advanced people.

Custom order was absolutely worth the wait
This jacket was a huge upgrade from my oversized, hand-me-down SPES Heavy 350N jacket. It perfectly matched the custom measurements I submitted with my order, and I'm much more comfortable and flexible in my fights as a result. Would definitely recommend for anyone with the time/patience to wait for the custom order to be filled!

Great Jacket
Excellent fit, great protection. Much heavier than I thought, but very good.

Love it
Perfect compromise between mobility and protection for regular, intense sparring. Foam protects the full front. Forearm and elbow protection is still necessary with this jacket, and there is unfortunately no padding/hard protection toward the back of the jacket or pockets to accommodate extra padding in those areas, but in no way detracts from the utility of this jacket.

A Great Jacket for Versatility
I decided to buy this jacket based on two intertwined criteria. I needed a jacket that was light enough for summer outdoor sparring, but protective enough to not compromise my safety if I was to do something like spear or halberd sparring. This jacket fullfilled this criteria for the most part. The padding of the jacket is lighter than I expected (I did not heed the online reviews). I don’t feel
