SPES Officers Fencing Jacket Level 2, 800N

Just like in "Officer" 350N, "Officer" Level 2 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" 800N HEMA Jacket was made especially for fencers fighting with sabre, long sword, or rapier. This HEMA gear is perfect for both trainings and tournaments.

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.

Resistance & comfort of use – "Officer" 800N HEMA Jacket

"Officer" Jacket Level 2 has an 800N certificate. Because of higher puncture resistance, it ensures better protection and reduce possible injuries during fight. This HEMA jacket has additional decorations in form of red adornments on sleeves and trimming on front part.

Among additional decorations, "Officer" Level 2 can be fitted to a body by adjustable strap on back. Our HEMA gear also has a breathable lining with antibacterial properties. This solution ensures higher air permeability and heat removal.

Sleeves are equipped with mountings, which allow you to mount additional elbow protectors, f.ex. “Shell”. A double mounting on zipper and snaps, ensures a durable and reliable clasp. Safety level has been increased by the use of wide overlap in front with an additional inner mounting, which prevents sliding.

4 of 5 SPES Officer's Jacket, 800N December 1, 2020
Reviewer: Ethan Miljus from OR, United States  
I've yet to spar in the jacket due to current lockdown measures, but I like it so far. I got the custom sizing and they did a fine job. The Jacket fits well and I can move properly in it.

5 of 5 Quality fencing jacket October 23, 2020
Reviewer: Curtis from Washington State  
I've been digging into Alfred Hutton's work for the past few years, and when I saw that this jacket is based off his clothing I had to buy one for myself! Although I've been diving into late 19th century sabre, my initial education was on 14th century German longsword and this jacket works just fine for either martial arts system! Also, it's a sharp looking jacket and really gives you a look of authority! Certainly well worth the price, compared to cheaper jackets or gambesons!

Reviewer: Eric Cerna from Lafayette, LA United States  
This jacket is a huge step up from my SPES AP Jacket. Lightweight, durable, looking sharp! Perfect for rapier as it is.  I am exploring side sword and longsword. I recommend buying SPES forearm guards and elbow guards to combine with this.
