Axel Pettersson Fencing Jacket
This fencing jacket was designed with the help and suggestions of Axel Pettersson, to serve the needs of the Swedish schools of historical fencing. The jacket closes in front with the help of a zipper and velcro. On the front of the collar, there is a broad overlap which closes with velcro.
The sleeves are specially designed for better arm movement. Also, there are additional protective layers on the chest, schoulders and elbows. The layers of fabric (from the outside) are: 2 layers of cotton, one protective layer, and 1 layer of cotton lining.
The jacket was tested at many seminars as well as one in Helsinki on 9-11.08.2012 lead by Axel Pettersson.
