If your club is like ours and insists on masks while drilling, you should probably start with that. As long as you make sure it fits properly, having your own mask should be a massive quality of life improvement.

Wearing someone else's mask is sort of like wearing someone else's jockstrap. On your face.

The old-timers at my club said that they used to not wear masks while drilling back in the day and somehow there were zero accidents.

For hema? You want some heavy padded fuckers

Or just go the whole hog and get some gauntlets while at it.

Might be a local thing, because around here, I've seen both feders and regular longswords used in tournaments. At least those of my buddies who got gauntlets for sparring say that it was totally worth it for the added protection.

I never really got feders, for me they seem somehow off.

But apparently the local crew is doing rapier or proto-rapier now so I should probably get into that poo poo after the summer.
