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 Great Stylish Jacket March 20, 2021
Reviewer: Bryan Bergh from Girard, IL United States  
Protective and lightweight, doesn't retain too much heat, looks very nice. I very much enjoy the strap in the back that provides the skinny fitted look and prevents the jacket from being loose and floppy during sparring. I liked the look so much I wore it to school once, which also helped break it in. It has great range of motion but tends to fold in the torso area until you finish the short break in period.

5 of 5 Great jacket January 4, 2021
Reviewer: Ty Larson from Nebraska  
Very comfortable and well fitted custom jacket. I have navy blue with yellow trim.

This is a good middle jacket to bridge the gap between my gajardoni challenge jacket which is heavy and invulnerable and my AF sports jacket which is fine for sports fencing and smallsword.

Ran into a snag with the sizing but everything got fixed and I am very pleased. However if I do longsword I definitely need to remember by forearm protectors with this jacket compared to my tank gajardoni as after a few hard hits you feel it and you will have some bruising later. This is a great broadsword, sabre, spadroon, and rapier jacket.
