More info

This fencing jacket was designed with the help and suggestions of Axel Pettersson, to serve the needs of the Swedish schools of historical fencing (""Gothenburg Historical Fencing School"" in particular). The jacket closes in front with the help of a zipper and velcro. On the front of the collar, there is a broad overlap which closes with velcro. The sleeves are specially designed for better arm movement. Also, there are additional protective layers on the chest, shoulders and elbows.

Improvements with V2

  • thicken protective layer on the ribs and the front
  • slightly shorter sleeves
  • collar consist blade catcher at the neck line
  • Zipper has been replaced by new, much stronger type.
  • Outher fabric has been changed to obtain higher resistance. Basis weight of the fabric is now minimum 350N certified."

I gave protection a four only becuse the gembeson only covers to about the waist and need something else to protect your hip/outer thigh. I live outside Atlanta and was able to try on all three gembesons. I preferred the Axel Pettersson gambeson over the others. All three offer protection but the Axel model has a cleaner look. I've had the opportunity to wear it several times now for drills and sparring. I have to say I'm more than satisfied with how it protects the upper body while still allowing very good mobilty. Its better than other gambesons I have worn which either offer good protection but you cannot move freely about in it or you can move but it's so thin you might as well wear a hoodie jacket.
