The vest has a foam pad inserted into it to provide protection for fencing with plastic foils. The vest is unisex and designed to fit a large range of sizes. The vest has a target area designated by black stitching. Having a target area encourages fencers to aim hits and gives an option for competitions. The vest is washable at a low temperature but you must remove the foam padding. The vest can have an electric scoring target added to it which will allow you to do mini competitions.
Customers say: I've ordered some of the non-electric vests earlier this week for use in our Midi-Fence classes. The coaches absolutely love them - they say the kids feel more like "real" fencers and the vests completely remove any fear of being hit. I'm quite looking forward to using them in my own sessions.
