  • SPES AP PRO PLUS Jacket 350N

    The design of this jacket provides perfect cushioning during the most demanding HEMA training, like sparring with the use of a feder sword. However, outer overlays are detachable, so you can use this jacket also during less challenging training.

    This jacket is made from a fabric of 350N puncture resistance. On the front, there is a layer of black suede leather attached with velcros. AP PRO PLUS is fastened with a zipper and velcro (so-called double fastening). The collar is equipped with a blade catcher and the sleeves - with PRO overlays. The leather part on the front increases the level of cushioning, but also gives the jacket a characteristic look. The back is equipped with an adjustable strap for better fitting to the body shape. When it comes to the filling of the jacket, it has the same felt stuffing as the standard model. Mounting points for PRO overlays (attached to the set) are upgraded. Now they are similar to those from the NG line, but in black color. PRO overlays are also upgraded with a slightly modified, modern design.

    This jacket combines high durability with comfort of wearing. HEMA practitioners will surely appreciate such a combination. Despite the high level of cushioning, you will feel comfortable wearing the AP PRO PLUS 350N model, and your movement will remain fast and firm. The leather layer on the front does not decrease mobility. PRO overlays on the sleeves provide full cushioning - you won’t need additional gear for this jacket! This means more time for training instead of laborious preparation for it. The stuffing of this jacket is made of recycled fabrics, so AP PRO PLUS 350N is also economical.

    Outer fabric: 50% Cotton, 50% Polyester
    Inner fabric: 100% Polyester
    Weight: 3.1 - 3.9 kg

  • SPES Cavalry Trousers 350N

The trousers are also adjustable at the waist with straps on the sides.

    The asymmetrical front flap by the belt is closed with three buttons, a zipper, and velcro. The trousers have a characteristic crease in front, along the entire length, and decorative golden stripes on the sides. These are inspired by the 19th-century military trousers.

  • SPES Men's Light AP Plus Jacket 350N

    AP Light Plus 350N was created on the basis of AP Light 350N and solutions used during the production of AP Plus 350N. Except that it is thinner and lighter than the AP.

    It is recommended for every person practicing HEMA, regardless of the level of skills or advancement. It is so universal that it can become a base for both light and heavy equipment for HEMA.

    The AP Light Plus 350N jacket has the so-called double closure (velcro + zipper). It has black trim at the front. The blade catcher is attached to the collar, and at the back - adjustment belt.

    AP Light Plus, like its prototype, is made of 350N puncture-resistant fabrics. There are additional mounts on the elbows, e.g. for Shell overlays. This jacket also has pockets for foams (included in the set). You can modify them and change the strength level of the shoulders, front, and sides of the torso.

    This type of AP Light is characterized by low weight, breathable construction, high level of mobility, and a wide range of modifications. It does not restrict movement during training.

    The fabric of these HEMA trousers has an 800N puncture resistance certificate. What also makes these pants special is a wide midsection part which covers a section of the underbelly and lowers the risk of injury when sparring. This HEMA equipment has both velcro straps and a zipper. You can easily fit it to your body thanks to an adjustable strap and suspenders.

    The red trimming on sides and a red pocket on the back will make a user stand out during any HEMA event.

  • SPES Men's AP Light Plus PRO Jacket 350N

    Structurally, this jacket will work best during heavy HEMA training, e.g. with Feder. All external elements are fully demountable, so you can adapt them to your needs, e.g. removing PRO overlays or removing internal foams. It can be used by both beginners and advanced.

    AP Light Plus PRO is closed with velcro and zipper. It has black trim at the front (so-called double closure). The same tapes are placed on the shoulders, and the PRO overlays are attached to them. This jacket has a blade catcher at the height of the larynx and a strap on the back.

    It is made of 350N puncture-resistant fabrics. The larynx is hidden by a collar with a blade catcher, and on the back, at the waist level, there is an adjustable belt. There are black tapes on the sleeves with the newly shaped PRO overlays attached to them (included in the set). This solution corresponds to the well-known method of mounting from the NG 800N series. The jacket has a modernized filling known from the standard version of AP Light 350N - two layers of 3D mesh and larger pockets for additional foams, covering e.g. collarbones (included in the set).

    All additional elements are demountable, which is why this jacket is a great choice for people looking for comprehensive solutions during HEMA training. As in the case of AP PRO Plus, this jacket is characterized by a high level of durability without compromising the comfort of use. In addition, it is light and has a breathable structure, thanks to which the high level of mobility is fully maintained. You will feel comfortable and confident in it, and thanks to the included PRO overlays, the preparation time for HEMA training will be much shorter. Thanks to them, you do not have to put on additional overlays!
