AF Female Jacket: Cotton w/: Stretch Panel
This is the most simple uniform type, typically purchased by beginning fencers. Being made up of 90% Cotton, and 10% Nylon, the Nylon comes from the stretchable panel in the back of the jacket to allow for less restriction on the fencer's movement. It's Front Zip, breathable and fairly light since the entire jacket portion is entirely made of Cotton. 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.
For Children: Please see sizing help in the customer service section of our website, we have included a chart to help clarify the sizing
