    Terrible fit for ALL adults!

    I purchased two sets of adult-sized head gear--one for myself, one for my boyfriend. We are both normal-sized adults, but neither one of us can wear this headgear! It adjusts rather poorly, but even at its largest size, it's very uncomfortable for me, and my boyfriend cannot wear this without getting a headache or fasten the chin strap at all. These are NOT for adults; at best, they're for middle-teenagers.

    very tight

    I agree with the previous review. This head gear is not one size fits all. I am a fairly big guy, but I cannot wear this head gear. It is so tight it gives me a headache. Great for smaller guys and girls, but if you are a big person try something else.

    Its good

    I haven't been boxing long but that doesn't stop me from telling you how it feels. The head gear is comfortable at first but after a few rounds, even when at full size, the hear gear is tight. I don't know how other head gear feels but it is very snug. On a more positive note, the head gear does protect the head from a lot of destructive blows and does not hinder visibility. When taking a blow this head gear is great, but if just standing around it can be slightly painful.

    Headgear Expert FAQs
       
    1. What kind of headgear is right for me?

      One of the great things about headgear is that there are so many brands and styles available. Head protection is taken very seriously in boxing and the development of headgear technology reflects that. To figure out what kind of headgear is right for you, first you need to decide how much padding you want. Headgear with a lot of padding will offer greater protection, but will also be less breathable. The lighter the headgear, the more natural it will feel.
      Most headgear is outfitted with molded foam or gel, both of which are designed to disperse impact and protect the head from abrasions.
      Next you need to decide what kind of protection you want for your face - whether it be completely open, small cheek guards, or a complete shield.
      Finally, you'll want to determine what sense of style you wish to portray - some brands feature very basic headgear that is modestly colored, while others are elaborate and eye-catching.

    2.  
    3. Does headgear protect against concussion?

      Studies have not shown any significant increase in protection against concussion when wearing headgear. The reason why is because the force of the impact is still transferred to the head, and concussion is caused when the brain makes contact with the skull. Headgear has been proven to protect against abrasions and can glance some blows away from direct impact. Use a mouthguard to absorb vibration. A proper fitting mouthguard is your best protection from concussions and jaw injuries.

    5. Cheek guard vs open face

      Cheek guards are a mainstay feature of boxing headgear, and you'll need to decide just how much you want as there are many gradations. The benefits of cheek guards are in protecting the bones and the skin on the face. However, the more padding you have up front, the greater the possibility of impeded vision. Depending on your fighting style, you may need to keep a completely open visual landscape in order to achieve maximum performance, at which time you might select headgear with no cheek guards at all. Mexican style headgear is often cited as having the most facial protection of any kind outside of a full-on face shield.

    7. When must I wear headgear as a boxer?

      Headgear is mandatory during amateur boxing bouts, and it is often wise to purchase headgear that are specifically stated to be designed for amateur bouts. Professional matches are always conducted without headgear. Many training gyms do require headgear to protect their practitioners, but that is at the discretion of each gym individually.
