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 trainings, for a fencer using e.g. sabre, rapier, longsword etc.
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.

Reviews

Lovely but bad fitReview by S

Bought a medium after measuring myself carefully. Chest and waist are fine but arms way too long and wide around the elbow & shoulders. I had a tailor reduce the sleeves but adjusting the armpit is difficult/impossible because of the stitching (this is special stitching to allow arms to swing without exposing the waist - but on me it's super baggy)

Quite padded for me, as I'm used to sports fencing jackets, but much less bulky than normal HEMA jackets.

It's nice but I'd prefer something that fits well especially when you're paying more for colour options (Posted on 31/03/2018)
