    So I'm looking for a head gear less than 80 dollars. So far, I'm deciding between the KO fightgear and the Ringside Air Max headgear. I want a headgear that's not too bulky, so I think I'm leaning more towards the air max. Also, I plan to use this to train, and possibly muay thai smokers.

    I use the KO Fightgear headgear and love it. Dont find it too bulky. Nice snug fit on my noggin and great protection in both the head and face.

    My girlfriend and myself like this for trianing: http://www.ringtocage.com/Mexican-Style-Sparring-Headgear-RCMEXHG.htm if offers good nose protection, but it does impede on visibility.

    And this for smokers: http://www.sharkwearsports.com/top-ten-avantgarde-head-guard-p-31.html

    Also in on this thread for the same reasons as the OP. I was looking at Title in addition to Ringside.

    It does look a bit bulky but I was surprised when i got it. Doesnt feel overly bulky. Nice snug fit. Have taken a few shots to the face with no injury. Just my opinion.
