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.

Sizes a little tricky August 15, 2019
Reviewer: M. Beschta from United States  
I wear a large glove in every other type of gloves, in these I am an extra small. I'm 6'1" and 195 lbs and I don't *think* I have tiny hands. Other than that, I feel surprisingly dexterous in these - more than I expected. I think it's because the thumb is segmented.

Wonderful Product August 13, 2019
Reviewer: Aaron Washick from Jackson, WI United States  
The protection is great. You might find at first that their bulk can make certain movements fiddly but as with anything else you have to practice. Highly recommend.

Reviewer: Jomiel Ruiz from Clearwater, FL United States  
Easy to wear and very good protection for longsword, barely feel the hits. Great quality for reasonable price. Will not work with rapier as you will have no dexterity.
