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.

Not a stock item, jackets have 12-16 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.

4 of 5 Great jacket, awesome colors June 17, 2022
Reviewer: Ana from Toronto  
I would give 4.5 stars if I could!! The jacket is awesome, the colors I chose are fantastic, exactly as I expected. The only thing I would improve is some size adaptation. (I got a standard model though, and I am happily surprised). It fits the waist/hips perfectly and gets extra fit because I have the option to tighten it around (thank you, I love that). I think it could be a little better adapted on the upper side. I would have preferred the arms a little tighter/smaller and the chest just a tiny little bit wider/larger, especially if I wanted to wear a solid chest protector (I wear 2 cups so not a problem).
All that being said, I am very happy with this jacket. I didn't feel confident enough to make it to my measurements because I am not entirely sure they contemplate the female body that well, but I will definitely buy another one in the future (and maybe try to contact someone to help me with customized measurements when I do).

5 of 5 Worth the long wait March 9, 2021
Reviewer: Marc Hudgins from NEW FREEDOM, PA United States  
I ordered the jacket in Novemeber wit han expectation of 6-8 weeks ( a prior order for the same item fit that timeline). At the 8 week mark there was still word on it and no status update. I inquired and was asked for additional measurements. After several more weeks I requested a status update and told it was in production. Several weeks later it arrived all told it took approximately  15 weeks to be delivered. I was not in a hurry for it, but I was disappointed in the delays and the lack of communication. I have to wonder if I hadn't poked about it if the measurement issue would have surfaced. All that said, it's a quality item and I would buy another but the purchase process was a bit messy. My previous experience was smoother, I don't know what made this one so protracted and bumpy.
