Leon Paul – Phoenix Range Uniform

Leon Paul – Phoenix Range Uniform


Fencing uniforms comes in 2 different safety standards, CEN level 1 or 350N uniforms, and CEN level 2 or 800N uniforms, most competitive fencers use 800N uniforms, because it offers a greater level of security or safety, also most Europeans use this range. At Leon Paul, what we decided was for the Phoenix range to make the best 350N uniform, that we could make and that’s what we’ve done. For the shell of the uniform, we selected a two way stretch material that is very comfortable, and gives great freedom of movement, also it doesn’t bobble and it lasts really well. So it’s easy to maintain, easy to wash and easy to look after. The grey linen in the uniform is a moisture managment linen, So it takes moisture from the surface of the skin and puts it onto the outer shell of the garment. This means that it’s going to evaporate faster and actively cool you down, It also means that it’s drier on the skin, so it feels more comfortable in long fencing sessions. Finally, we’ve added an anti-microbial element to it, so it kills bacterias, and so it stays fresher for longer. The jacket has an integrated blade catcher in the collar for added security, and it uses YKK zips for added durability, and on the base of the jacket, there is an additionnal elastic linen, which means that the botton of the jacket is actually held tighter to the body, which is more comfortable and looks better aswell. The breeches have a traditionnal backpocket for your body wire, and then we use elasticated braces for added safety, and finally we decided to use a double button fastening system instead of VELCRO®, This is because the hook of the VELCRO® often catches the materials, and can fray it, and that can damage your garment and they wouldn’t last as long.
