The TH stands for Tony Huang, who is a Canadian medalist. Tony’s innovative built in throat protector style truly not only adds to aesthetics, but offers maximum protection towards the throat and front clavicle area. The wearer can still raise their hands, as the built in gorget sits on the upper part of the chest. This can be combined with a DMZ throat or Hockey throat guard for tournament intensity.

The protector is a thin flexible plastic sheet that does have some give, and the mask can easily be inserted behind the protector. Turning the head is possible but limited (somewhere around 90 degrees turn from right to left)

The built in throat protector is not a standalone, we recommend using additional throat protector i.e RD Gorget or hockey throat protector at all times when using our HGC jackets. 

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 recommend using additional forearm protectors at all times, when using our HGC jackets.

Gussets under the arm allows the wearer to lift up their arm without the jacket raising too much.

Currently our pictures are on the prototype model.

Made with 800N Material

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.

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

Excellent jacket design

I bought this jacket about a year ago and I am really happy with how it’s performed. Compared to my previous more conventional jacket, this one lets me raise my arms higher more comfortably, drops lower to protect the hips, has an integrated gorget plate, and is lighter and more breathable. Once I started using it, my performance in sparring noticeably increased thanks to the superior mobility. The only nitpick I have is the jacket came with some rough edges in the fabric on the inside. Highly recommended!
