It is recommended for people training HEMA, regardless of their skills or advancement level. It is a very universal model that can become a base for creating light or heavy sparring sets. However, do not forget about additional overlays or plastrons, especially during the most intense sparrings.
The FG Light jacket is fastened with a zipper + velcro (so called
double-closure). Blade catcher is attached to the collar, and the elbows
with special straps for overlays attaching, e.g. Shell or PRO. Compared to other SPES jackets, the FG is longer, reaches mid-thigh and has slits on the sides.
This gambeson is made of 350N puncture resistant fabrics. A 3D spacer mesh was used for the production of the lining. Like the AP Light 350N, the FG jacket has pockets for additional foams (included with the jacket). They are modifiable: you can remove them, change their size or add additional cushioning layers.
An important feature of this jacket is its lower weight (the
lowest among the FG family). Breathable construction and high level of
hygroscopicity are other features of this unique gambeson. You
won't lose your mobility during training! If you are looking for a
longer, lighter and very comfortable jacket which covers the thighs, the
FG Light 350N is a top choice!
