    by "full face shield" you probably mean a facesaver, a full face headguard is something different

    cheek protectors are more lightweight and much better for people who don't like to wear headguards

    this is what you want, best all around. I have facebar as well and it limits vision a lot. But this top king model is great.

    TopTen has the best full face protection headgear in my opinion. It does not impair sight like others do. The only downturn is that it is just available in one size: M.

    I’m curious to hear more about this too. I’ll be buying headgear soon and I’m leaning towards facesaver, but I’d like to know if it’s really that bad to get hit with just the cheek protector models.

    Any insight is appreciated

    It's not bad, most people I know prefer cheeks to facesavers

    My daily grind is client facing and in a suit, is a facesaver going to keep me more presentable or will just cheeks do the job?

    Sorry for needing clarification but most of the posts I’ve seen are all a bit vague

    They'll be vague because it's impossible to answer you properly, as we don't know what your sparring looks like, and some people's skin marks up more easily than others. If the sparring's very intense and you get blasted sometimes and it's regular, then a facesaver will be better if getting any bruising on your face is a big deal. If you're not competing though and your sparring is watched and managed responsibly then it's probably not intense and you'll likely be fine with just cheek protectors, but shit happens and maybe your skin bruises more easily than others.
