Diestro Light Weapons Jacket
$279.99 – $309.99 CAD
The Diestro Jacket was designed for light weapon use. Created by fencers in both SCA & HEMA, this jacket was made to look ”historical”, and at the same time offer the protection that HEMA fencers need. Inspired by doublets of the Renaissance, we decided to modify the Diestro with pockets for padding inserts. Pockets for padding inserts are located on the shoulder, front & side panels. The Diestro and Diestrx LS model both come with special gussets (armpit area) that improve arm articulation and prevent the jacket torso from rising.
