"Colonel" Fencing Jacket
Evoking the look of later-period fencing jackets and those worn by officers, this jacket offers some lighter padding for extra mobility while retaining a durable, thrust-resistant fabric. The jacket includes energy-absorbing pads in the shoulders and elbows as well as attachment points with INCLUDED hard elbow protection. The back cinch will keep your jacket looking and feeling fitted. There are two layers of 800 Newton fabric (rated by the manufacturer) over the chest to help enhance safety.
Having a gut, it is hard to find a jacket that will fit off the rack. Not wanting to pay extra and wait for a custom, I took a chance on this jacket. Fits like a glove. Can't wait to take it to my club and break it in properly. Thanks Socal Swords!
