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.

Great Looking/Well Made March 5, 2019
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Vancouver, BC Canada  
I haven't sparred yet with the gloves, but they seem extremely well made and fit great. I was worried about the motion of the fingers, but this seems to be acceptable. The new thumb design seems robust.

Reviewer: Kevin Smith from Wichita, KS United States  
Good protection, but it slightly interferes with grip. Other than that my thumb is much happier!

Good Protection January 28, 2019
Reviewer: Evan Sagerman from San Francisco, CA United States  
I use Red Dragons for side sword, and lighter gloves for rapier, so these seem big and clumsy. But they do a great job of protecting my hands, and I'm getting used to them. They're very well made.
