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 Masterfully Crafted! November 23, 2020
Reviewer: Colin from Lexington, KY United States  
The color scheme I specified came out beautifully!  I love the adjustment abilities to suit my small frame, and my new forearm-guarded HEMA gloves actually fit when I keep the forearm plastic pads on the jacket, doubling my protection.  The jacket breathes decently, but I wear a chest protector underneath, so I can’t complain that I get warmer underneath as a result.  It’s still great that my chest protector fits under the jacket regardless.  And thank you for allowing me to add plastic plates to the Officer jacket.  That was well worth the extra price.

4 of 5 like the style and mobility June 9, 2020
Reviewer: John horrigan from Beverly, MA United States  
This is a very nice medium weight HEMA jacket.  IT has a really cool style, and really nice mobility.  All of that of course comes at a cost, as the jacket is not particularly protective.  I use this when training, and it certainly does the job of protecting me from an errant or deflected strike, but by it self this is not (at least in my opinion) intended as a sparing jacket.

5 of 5 SPES 350n jacket April 9, 2020
Reviewer: Jonathan Aranda from Las Vegas, NV United States  
This is a great jacket both for appearance and the comfort. I use it for SCA cut and thrust / unarmored but it's also great for HEMA fencing. The best park about this jacket is that taking it off is easy, just pull the buttons and the zipper. It also gives the wearer full articulation in the arms. Not cumbersome at all!
