SPES Lobster Heavy Gloves with Updated Thumb - Pair

The SPES Heavies are designed to protect your hands from injury during training in historical fencing. These gloves provide full coverage for all five fingers in a lobster design.

The pockets are separated into a thumb slot, index and middles finger slot, and ring and pinkie fingers slot.



Thanks to these heavy gloves, training with heavy weapons, feders, and dussacks is much safer.

See Sizing tab for more information.

5 of 5 Excellent product, rapid shipping. November 21, 2019
Reviewer: Henry from PA United States  
There's really nothing better than SPES heavies. They feel practically indestructible, but plenty dextrous to grip a sword. One complaint I have was the fibers used to bind plates together started to fray pretty rapidly with usage, but I simply burned the frays off, melting the fibers together and this solved the problem.

I also received my order only a few days after placing it. I was surprised at the speed of delivery, half expecting more than a week to go by.

5 of 5 Met grandson's expectations. November 21, 2019
Reviewer: Kathy Ayres from Andover, KS United States  
Purchased for my grandson.   He is currently training in 3 different styles of fencing.  All of his instructors were very impressed with the quality of the equipment.  My grandson said they fit great and he is very particular.   We have purchased other items from this vendor and have never been disappointed.
