Description Sizing Shipping Information
SPES AP Jacket 800N New Generation PRO Version.

HEMA jacket based on the upgraded AP NG 800N model. It’s a new, improved version of AP PRO 350N model with a range of possible modifications, in accordance to your needs.

Include all Plastic Arm Plates.

We’ve adapted this jacket to new, more demanding HEMA regulations. What is more, this model is universal enough and provides a full comfort of wearing and mobility, even if you haven’t had contact with HEMA so far. But if you are an advanced user, you can expect a high level of amortization, similar to Hussar 800N jacket.

The design of the AP PRO model has been refreshed significantly. On the sleeves, front flap and on the back you can notice a tape in grey color. Under the flap you will find a double-fastening: a zipper and a velcro. It decreases the risk of damaging the zipper!

What’s most important, to keep the original character of the AP PRO 800N (and somehow refer to the 350N model), on the front we’ve attached a grey eco-leather layer with velcros.

The new version of AP PRO is sewn from the composite of 800N puncture resistance! Tapes on the sleeves, apart from visual aspects, function as attaching points for additional covers, for example our PRO set, which are included in the set. Detachable front layer is made from durable eco-leather.

Traditional felt stuffing has been replaced with thick, springy 3D mesh, which also is more breathable, providing better moisture removal and cushioning features. Inside the jacket you will find special pockets for additional cushioning foams (not included in the set).

This model stands out with breathable construction and improved durability. Despite a good level of amortization, you will have no problem with moving in this jacket - it does not hinder the movement during training.

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 (except decimals) and enter measurements in centimeters (it's made in Europe!) ALL MEASUREMENTS MUST BE INCLUDED.

See Sizing tab for more information.

5 of 5 Great jacket April 22, 2022
Reviewer: Lucky clover from Wisconsin  
The jacket have a bit of a break in period especially in the shoulders and elbows I was expecting a bit more padding in the front with the new 800n and being more breathable it’s a great jacket for everything but with rapier I can see mobility issues I haven’t broke it in entirety the only downside is the zipper it’s a bit harder too reach cause of the stiffness

5 of 5 Custom order. Fit perfect April 5, 2022
Reviewer: Scott Harrell from Texas City, TX United States  
This order took over two months to ship, BUT.... it was a custom order in custom sizing, made in Poland, during a time of military unrest in Eastern Europe. I think the shipping time was very reasonable. Upon arrival, the jacket fit perfectly. The various PRO plates were easy to attach, and there are options for mounting and they are highly adjustable. The jacket is extremely well made and tough. I have spared with it twice now, and I believe it will hold up for a long time.

The only potential issue is this jacket is extremely hot and very heavy. It does not breath at all. Be aware that you may have to take it off between sparring matches to cool off. I ordered the jacket knowing this, and planning on buying a lighter jacket to go with it. I wear ballistic body armor for work every day, so I have adapted to wearing this type of protective gear. All in all, as long as you understand what this jacket is for, would highly recommend and would recommend ordering from Purple Heart.
