This jacket was inspired by the pictures in “The Flower of Battle” manuscript by Fiore dei Liberi. We wanted to create a historical looking jacket but with some modern touches.

 The longer length design will help protect the wearer’s hips where some HEMA pants don’t. This goes perfectly with the HGC 2.0 Furukawa.

 We’ve added arming points from the top of the arm down to the elbow so that the wearer may add custom protection plates to in the future, or make their own. PSA Elbows can be easily tied to one of these arming points.

 The forearm padding is very thin so that it is easier to use with forearm protectors. We found that jackets with thick forearm tends to bunch up when using gloves with cuffs, or forearm protectors.

We also added a breathable mesh on the lower back for some increase ventilation. We kept the padding on the upper back because in sparring we sometimes get hit just behind the shoulder. 

  WE RECOMMEND USING ADDITIONAL FOREARM PROTECTORS AT ALL TIMES, when using our HGC jackets.

Our design used bigger gussets under the arm to allow the wearer to lift up their arm without the jacket raising too much.

 Made with 800N Material

CUSTOM Option: The average wait time for custom color or sizing is roughly 2-4 months

Love it

I ordered this jacket with custom measurements and it fits perfectly. The jacket doesn’t ride up when you lift your arms and I love the colour (navy blue). My order was filled quicker than I expected. Any questions I had were responded to quickly and helpfully. Highly recommend
