The Sparring Gloves Classic Mitten style HEMA Glove was the first glove specifically produced for the rigors of modern HEMA training and remains the benchmark by which all other gloves are measured. Often imitated but never matched by other glove manufacturers, this is the extremely protective glove design that changed the game for HEMA protection with its unique flexible accordion wrist design and high impact protection based on general design concepts of medieval gauntlets. A true classic and for all the right reasons!
This glove has long been a favorite of longsword fencers around the world and they also work magnificently with other cruciform hilted swords, most “open hilt” designs such as arming swords, dussacks, and some sabres.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to a number of factors we cannot offer refunds on Sparring Gloves. On a case-by-case basis we can sometimes exchange gloves for the correct size but ONLY if the original pair are in NEW condition and have not been used in any way. This includes “practice” hits and/or spending the afternoon doing solo work in them. We recommend that if you are unsure of your sizing or choice in model that you first try on a pair of a club-mate to better know what will work for you.
