  • SPES Imperial Light HEMA Jacket 350N

    This unique jacket is an alternative version of Imperial Jacket 350N. It was inspired by the Imperial Fleet uniform from one of the most popular movie sagas. With its length and design, this model refers to the Attila 350N jacket. More on the process of making our Imperial Jacket for HEMA you will find in our blog.

    Due to the lack of 350N fabric, we recommend this jacket only for lightsaber trainings or duels. Imperial Jacket Light is dedicated for male users of various skills.

    The Imperial Jacket Light, just like the 350N model, stands out with its design. It reaches the upper part of the thighs and has extra slits on the sides. It is fastened with a long belt. The sleeves are equipped with mounting for additional overlays. On the chest you can notice a velcro for additional application.

    This model has a double fastening: a zipper and a velcro. The velcro on the chest gives an option of adding various applications, like imperial military grade.

    Just like Officer 350N, Attila 350N, Imperial Jacket Light has a lining in the form of a distance mesh. On the front it has a wide flap with a spacious pocket for cushioning foam (included in the set).

    This model is one of the longest jackets from our assortment. Side slits ease the movement. In the waist it has a belt with a buckle, which is removable.

  • 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.

    Outer fabric: 50% Cotton, 50% Polyester
    Inner fabric: 100% Polyester
    Weight: 1.10 - 1.90 kg

  • SPES AP PLUS HEMA Jacket 350N

    AP PLUS 350N jacket is based on the iconic AP 350N jacket. However, it has several extras that will make your life easier during training: backstrap, mounting points for overlays (like Shell), plus a double-closure!

    The jacket has a front flap with black trim. This model of AP is closed with a zipper and velcros (so-called double closure). Like most of our gear, the collar has a blade catcher and an adjustable strap on the back.

    Quilting of the AP PLUS refers to the basic AP model. The length of the jacket also remains the same as the rest of this series. Fabrics used in this gear have 350N puncture resistance. There are additional mounting points on elbows e.g. shell. The inner construction of felt also refers to classic AP. There are cushioning layers on the chest, shoulders and elbows.

    AP PLUS 350N doesn’t hinder the movement and ensures the wearer’s mobility during training. Thanks to the adjustable belt section, it fits the body shape even better than standard AP. We use recycled materials as padding in this jacket. This solution makes it more economic, but equally durable as the original.

    Outer fabric: 50% Cotton, 50% Polyester
    Inner fabric: 100% Polyester
    Weight: 2.1 - 2.9 kg
