Headgear

hey , so i need all your opinions out there. im looking for a headgear that will fit any of these descriptions ,the more match... the better.


light
small, because i noticed bigger headgear is prone to get hit easily
will not move around when hit
good vision
good protection on the temple
with or with nose guard

i have bought the everlast everfresh headgear, title classic face protector headgear, and badboy mma gear.

none of those headgears seem to fit my taste.
they either are too big, moves around alot, blocks vision, or just not designed well for sparring.

P.S
i dont need one of those 250 dollar winning headgears , or 120 fighting headgears.

what do yall think of...?

The Everlast sucks in my opinion. It feels like a rock and when you're getting punched it rattles your brain. I can't recommend it. Rival headgears usually offer good vision but virtually no nose protection. You have to pick one, you can't have both. I'd rather go with a headgear that offers nose protection rather than top notch vision.

It might be worth it for some, but the padding to me is like concrete, inside and outside. It gave me headaches immediately and I got rid of it soon. Also the quality sucked, the seams were uneven and not in a straight line, it just looked very poorly made. But that's Everlast these days.

The Title facesaver is very bulky, almost like a helmet. I wouldn't recommend it. Don't think the fit is gonna be good either.

If you lean towards the Everlast one try this one: Deluxe Face Saver Boxing Headgear - Boxing Gear - FightGear

It's basically the same in terms of the design. In terms of the padding (very dense on the Everlast) it can't possibly be any worse. Same for the quality, I'm pretty sure it's better than the Everlast. And it's only 79 bucks.

From their official website. Shipping costs a ton (as does the headgear itself of course).

They're basically the same. Get the Ringside version, save about 30 bucks.
