Fencing Gear!

Today I placed an order for my very own set of fencing gear. I ordered a starter set (armor, mask, gloves, sword), along with a dagger, hood, gorget, and chest protector. The gorget is a new model they're carrying, designed specifically for fencers, with extra protection in front (the one pictured on the website is designed for heavy fighting, with extra protection on the back of the neck). I have no idea what it looks like, but hopefully it'll prevent me from suffering Danica's problem, getting hit between the chest protector and gorget, directly on the collarbones (owch!). They said they'd try to have the equipment out to me by the end of the week, just in time for this weekend's practice!
