This deluxe front-zip jacket is an elegant and comfortable choice for any fencer. Unlike the stiffer cotton jacket which may limit your range of motion, the nylon material will stretch and allow for effortless movement. You can rest assured that the jacket will keep you safe, as it meets the exacting European Safety Standard (CE) of 350N resistance. Double layers of polyester protect the vital parts, and the jacket is secured at the neck and waist with Velcro and elastic at the cuffs, making it more comfortable and safe. The sleeves also contain inner linings, which provide the arm with added protection and comfort. It is machine washable and line drying is recommended. This non-FIE jacket is legal for all domestic competitions.
The first step involved with validating the quality of fencing equipment is Getting CE approval. CE is the industrial standard in Europe that tests equipment according to given standards and then gives its independent approval to those that pass. Our jackets are subjected to rigorous testing for structural integrity (strength), limitation of shrinkage, and consistency of sizing, among others.
