SPES AP Light Fencing Womens Jacket 350N

Light HEMA jacket based on the popular "AP" 350N model.

Features include an overlap in the front, bladecatcher near neck.

"AP Light" is characterized by low weight, breathable construction, adjustable waist and extra pockets with foam (on shoulders, on front flap, and on sides).

This HEMA jacket is thinner than the regular "AP" but still made from 350N puncture resistance fabric. Its lining allows heat and moisture removal but also has the antibacterial function. On the sleeves you can find grips for additional elbow protectors.

Adjustable strap lets a wearer adjust the waist.
Cuts on back let the lower part of a clothing lay in freely and don't hinder movement.

Thanks to extra pockets for foams, the protection level of ribs, shoulders and front can be improved. This feature allows using this jacket in light historical fencing trainings, as well as tournament duels. (With extra protection)

NOTE! You can modify your HEMA jacket by way of embroidery.

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 MEASUREMENTS MUST BE INCLUDED.

See Sizing tab for more information.

5 of 5 Perfect jacket! October 26, 2019
Reviewer: Elena L from Vancouver, BC Canada  
I just love it. It provides enough protection for a full speed sparring with a longsword. Btw, I would recommend to wear a chest protector under because some hard thrusts may be felt bad. It is not super hot, much better than standard AP jacket.
The only problem I had, it was too tight in shoulders (I've bought standard medium size); however, an awesome tailor fixed it for me. Would be nice to have this measurement in the table.
Conclusion: totally worth the money I've paid. Would recommend to buy. Just be concerned, that it might be tighter in shoulders than expected.
