Great gear.

Excellent protective device. Snug fit without feeling tight or restrictive, lightweight, great visibility, easy to get on and off.
Only caution is to keep from smiling when your sparring partner gives you a solid shot. You can barely feel it in this thing, it's as close to the sensation of not getting hit as you can get.
Had my instructor told me that he wouldn't make fun of me for getting the full-face bar headgear, I would have gone that route, but this is a rockstar stand in.

Head Gear For Youth

Hi. My 8 going on 9 year old just started boxing and I know nothing about the sport other than what I have seen on TV. He had the opportunity to spar for the first time and used the gyms head gear. While it looked like good protection (real thick USA boxing approved)it was very loose and when he would really get going it would slip off his head (not totally) or turn, so he had to stop.I could tell he was excited to be there but frustrated with the head gear.Could you please tell me a few top choices for his level???

Thank you.

Hi DLS. Size is the real factor here, so I would first consider this headgear: bx-hd-30 which is specifically suited for children.

After that you could consider the 'small' size on this page, as well as these two pages: bx-hd-409, bx-hd-418.

Yes this is a good choice for headgear. The protection and quality are top notch - you should be able to get years of use and abuse out of this.

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.

  4.  
  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.

  6.  
  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.
