    I am thinking about starting to spar. Was wondering if i could get some recommendations on headgear. I have medium to large head. My cousin has an everlast one with this bar across the face but justa chin strap. think it is 3yrs old but looks new. Says he never got a chance to use it. Anything else out there for under $70? or would that be good for now? sorry pretty computer illiterate to take a pic and post it. Thanks in advance.

    Hey funny guy i did and for some reason the first 8 post that come up are about gloves and the 2 that have headgear it's over a hundred bucks. thanks for the help anyway. hope all the higher belts actually have something to contribute.

    What kinda sparring?Muay Thai,MMA,back yard tear ups?Do you want a facesaver one with the bar that goes across the whole nose area that should stop most punches getting through like this- Facesaver - KO Fightgear

    or would you be happy with one that allows for better vision but you will get caught on your nose more -
    Full Face Head Gear - KO Fightgear
    Headgear for Boxing, Muay Thai, MMA, Grappling & Wrestling HEAD GEAR

    Thanks for answering back guys. Have an hold everlast face saver one. PLayed around with it and it stays pretty good. but looking into one with the cheeks and chin. Mainly for boxing and MT but i'm sure will do some transitions to the ground. Got a bisnose so maybe stick with my old one.

    Headgear on the ground is always annoying, specially a facesaver.

    I'll second the silverback. I've used it for Muay thai and its worked out well for me.

    I have a Twins headgear its made very well its got velcro and laces, its really old and doesnt seem to wear out.
    It protects well, headgear only moves around if its too big or not adjusted well.
