AF Male Jacket: Cotton (Back-Zip)
This uniform is more commonly purchased by clubs instead of individual fencers, that way the same jacket can be used for both a Left and Right handed fencer. Being made up of 100% Cotton, it's breathable and fairly light, but doesn't offer quite as much comfort and range of movement as Front-Zip jackets do. However it's good for club use and very young beginning fencers who aren't sure if they'll stick with fencing or not because of it's modest price. All Women's Jackets come with the inside pockets to place your breast protectors inside the jacket if you have a pair instead of the single breast plate.
The only downside to this uniform, is because it's mostly Cotton, it will shrink a bit when you wash it, mostly in length, and there is no putting these in the dryer!
To size for this jacket:
For Men: Take a chest measurement all the way around, just under the armpits around the widest part of your chest at the shoulder blades.
For Women: Use regular bra size.
Add 6 inches to the chest size and this will give you your jacket size. If you come to an odd number, since we only have even sizes, always round up.
For Example: Your fencer has a 33 inch chest measurement. Add 6 inches, and you get 39... which mean's you'll need Size 40 for one of these jackets, since they only come in even sizes.
