“Sport” HEMA fencing gloves
Padded fencing gloves with midi cuff
This is one more version of our “Sport” renaissance fencing gloves. This is a medium-length cuff version, that will work well with short bracers or for the type of practice or sparring that doesn’t require bracers at all.
Basically, we were thinking rapier or small sword, but there are many more applications you can find these gloves handy for.
These gloves design is based on our SCA and WMA inner gloves engineering but after some quite harsh and intense Eastern European HEMA competitions we found that we need to seriously redesign our gloves to make a perfectly balanced fencing gear.
They became way more sophisticated (and more expensive) but we literally gathered the most common requests and complaints and tried to address them, so to say, in this design. There is a thin layer of plastic in the cuff, so the cuff itself works as protection, there is EVA protection on fingers, thumb, and outer parts of the hand, softened pads where you need them, and a perforation between fingers to keep your hands dry.
When you get your gloves, don’t worry too much that they are tight, we make them this way so they won’t be too large when the leather stretches, just give them to do their job for a couple of sparrings and they will fit like a glove soon.
Black leather warning: initially we thought this is us, but eventually we found out this is a typical issue for extreme sport black gloves, from skiing to motorcycle riding. Well, black leather will leave marks on your fingers, the more intensively you practice, the more visible they will become. So, there are two options - just wait and with time it will get way better, or buy lighter color gloves to avoid this problem in the first place.
At last but not at least, this is the version for soulless tournament fighters, if your heart belongs to the letter “H” in “HEMA” you are welcome to try our “Heritage” version.
