  • Red Dragon HEMA Sparring Jacket

    1 Review(s)

    Our HEMA Sparring Jacket by Red Dragon is designed for HEMA and is constructed from a 350N rated heavy-duty cotton with an inner lining. The jacket is well padded to receive blows but has no padding on the back as it is very rare to receive effective blows here. This has the effect of reducing the weight of the jacket whilst increasing the breathability. The zipped front panel overlaps to provide a double-layer of protection against thrusts to the torso.

    This jacket also features an innovative built in gorget, designed to overlap the bib of a fencing mask to stop thrusts from travelling upwards from beneath the bib. The gorget features a padded plastic plate to protect the throat and adjustable Velcro straps that allow it to be attached either at the back of the collar or at the back of the shoulders. The gorget can also be worn under the bib of the mask if you so wish. The back of the jacket features an adjustable webbing strap with velcro attachment which allows it to be pulled in at the waist for a more streamlined fit.

    All measurements are taken from the outside of the jacket and so may differ due to the thickness of the material.

  • Red Dragon HEMA Synthetic Wheel Pommel - Red

    As testament to the country of manufacture we went for an Oakeshott J1 style pommel often found on English swords. It is made from a special blend of plastic and powdered metal to increase the weight beyond what is achievable with plastic alone. The threaded brass "supertorque" insert offers much better purchase than conventional inserts allowing for a tight fit. Designed & Manufactured in the U.K.

    Designed to fit our complete range Red Dragon HEMA Synthetic Blades.

  • Red Dragon HEMA Light Sparring Jacket

    1 Review(s)

    Our HEMA Light Sparring Jacket by Red Dragon is designed for HEMA and is constructed from a 350N rated heavy-duty cotton with an inner lining. The jacket features less padding than our HEMA Sparring Jacket and is better suited to single hand weapons such as rapier and sabre.

    This jacket has no padding on the back as it is very rare to receive effective blows here – especially from rapiers and sabres. This has the effect of reducing the weight of the jacket whilst increasing the breathability. It also does not have padding on the inside of the arms reducing the weight further.

    The padded collar features a blade catcher to help protect against stray thrusts that may go under the bib of a fencing mask.  The back of the jacket features an adjustable webbing strap with Velcro attachment which allows it to be pulled in at the waist for a more streamlined fit.
