Even in a light sparring session, wearing proper protection is always a good idea. Protect yourself in a fight with the HEMA Light Sparring Jacket. Made from 350 Newton rated, heavy duty cotton, the black jacket works great for HEMA rapier and saber sparring. It comes in four sizes. Also, it features an inner lining and padding for great protection from blows. This padding does not extend to the back since attacks are rarely effective in this area with rapiers and sabers. The jacket also has less padding underneath the arms. This lightens the weight of the jacket considerably as well as increasing the breathability.
Next, there is a zipped front panel. It overlaps for a double layer of protection from thrusts to the torso. Also, the zipper is red. In addition, this HEMA jacket features a blade catcher. The blade catcher helps to prevent against blows to the neck. Finally, on the back of the HEMA jacket, there is a strap with a Velcro tip for adjusting the fit at the waist. This HEMA Sparring Jacket works great for HEMA rapier and other light sparring.
