    Consolidated Headgear thread (post headgear questions here)

    Note from moderator: As this has been a very popular topic, I figured I'd stick all the existing threads together and put it at the top. If anything hasn't been covered in this thread (despite all the repeat crap), please post your questions/input to add to the discussion.


    Hey all,


    My class needs a heavy duty headgear that could withstand the most punishing blows. I've seen the flismy foam dipped ones with the face mask. I'm looking for something that fully protects the head and would allow the attacker to go full throttle with or without boxing gloves.

    I'm at a loss. Should I consider buying something like a motor cycle helmet?
    Thanks for any input you guys can give me.

    Huh. Aries has some good stuff. They didn't have those last time I checked them out though.

    Look like they'd be heavy and uncomfortable as hell.

    Look at Kendo gear. The Men (helmet) in that has a metal mask and thick canvas sides the back however is unprotected.

    You can wail on the front as hard as you want.
    People often tell me that I fail to see the gravity of the situation.
    I see the gravity, and I say...

    Step right up folks and watch me defy gravity!

    I just got some nice Cleto Reyes headgear that makes vicious hammerblows to the skull feel like nice fluffy pillows.

    I have no idea where you'd get that though, since my boxing coach sold it to me. I don't know where he got it.
