    I'd shoot off an email to Pro-box/Ampro or whoever the brand owner is and ask about their sizing.

    Sounds like a plan. Any experience with pro-box stuff?

    looks interesting, how's the nose protection on it? Got my nose broke in January and don't particularly fancy having it smashed again :D

    Nose protection isn't good. The cheek protectors are very small.

    Not really. See the stuff plenty around the gym - their gloves and their micro mitts. Have a friend with the pro box facesaver, and one with a pro box open face headguard. My impression has always been that its decent on a budget and you're paying for what you get.

    If you have a small head, this is currently on sale:

    cheers minow. Getting a helmet in Ireland is REALLY hard these days. So expensive and generally poor selection :(

    I think the one you picked out in the OP might be as good as you are going to get, and in all likelihood probably a solid buy anyway considering the price.

    looks like it :( so envious of the yanks these days. Rivals helmets are SO much cheaper that side of the pond.
