SPES Officers Fencing Jacket 350N

This fencing jacket was designed mostly for single hand sword work bridging the gap between the lighter JF Fencing Jacket and heavier AP Jacket. We found that the excellent protection of the AP jacket is not often needed when doing singlehand sword work, especially with a shield or sabre.

Additional Forearm/elbow guard is recommended.

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 10 MEASUREMENTS MUST BE INCLUDED.

See Sizing tab for more information.

Black usually in stock, color jackets have 4-6 week lead time. Piping color on all jackets is grey shown in pictures.

Officer Fencing Jacket 350N is based on classic historical fencing outfits patterns. It was inspired by Alfred Hutton’s persona.

The project is based on classic historical fencing outfits. Alfred Hutton, who lived at the turn of XIX and XX century and is one of the HEMA pioneers, was the inspiration for creating this unique jacket.
"Officer" Fencing Jacket is designed for light historical fencing training, for a fencer using e.g. sabre, singlestick and rapier in particular. Longsword if controlled.
The jacket has been made of fabric which has a 350N puncture resistance certificate.
Low weight is the greatest asset of this jacket and it gives you the feeling of airiness as well as the ease of movement.
A breathable padding made of a spacing mesh ensures heat and moisture removal as well as high air permeability what greatly boosts the comfort of use.
Safety level has been increased by the use of wide overlap in front with an additional inner mounting, which prevents sliding.
A double mounting on zipper and snaps, ensures a durable and reliable clasp.
The jacket has a blade catcher which protects your larynx from sharp blades.
The drawstring at the waist level on the back ensures a better fit of the jacket. Arms and shoulders have additional layers of padding for better amortization.
The sleeves are equipped with mountings, which allow you to mount additional elbow protectors.

The jacket is available in three standard colors. For additional cost, it is possible to order this jacket in other colours – according to the colour palette. Piping is grey as shown in picture.

5 of 5 SPES Officer Win September 9, 2019
Reviewer: Daniel Trisler from Omaha, NE United States  
Very nice, comfortable jacket. Obviously significantly warmer than a standard fencing jacket, but more padded and, let's face it, stylish.

2 of 5 Back belt came off in 3 seconds August 20, 2019
Reviewer: Vadim Flaks from Skokie, IL United States  
While the jacket itself seems very well put together (so far), it did present an unexpected hurdle when one end of the waist adjustment belt came off and started unwinding almost immediately. Apparently it was sewed into the fabric of the jacket by the thinnest sliver or length and I had to sew it onto itself to make any use of it.
Every piece of gear needs maintenance every now and again, but a 260 dollar item needing needle and thread right away is unacceptable.
