Nah , I am sure someone on here could point you in the right direction .

Tragically and somewhat ironically, the Army doesn't support us performing full contact outside of Army Combatives courses. So headgear, with some kind of face shielding, is essential to me keeping my rank.
And Maofas I went with a Combat Sports Face cage reccomended by MingLoyalist. It is expensive, but is keeps you from showing up to work looking like you got worked over. I will freely admit haven't had a chance to put it to a real test however.

I own 2 of the Fight Gear "Blue Bomber" headgears, which are machine washable, since I end up sharing a lot. They're still pretty new, but so far everybody likes them. We don't always wear them because it interferes with the clinch, much less actually taking the fight to the ground, but if we decide we're going to actually exchange strikes, we put them on.

I hate headgear. I'm the owner of my gym. I don't have to wear headgear. Yay for.....
What were we talking about?
Seriously though. I make my guys wear head gear, prevents excess cutting.

If I ever find some decent headgear I might wear it, but everything I've ever seen or tried on sucks. I'm pretty sure all headgear just sucks.

I can't find any headgear that fits me well, so sometimes. When I do, it sucks.

This is what I've got
Amazon.com: TITLE MMA OPEN FACE TRAINING/GRAPPLING HEADGEAR: Sports & Outdoors
it works out ok as far as headgear goes. notice it's the MMA headgear because I figured it'd have a slimmer profile then boxing headgear. I also prefer open face.
On the fashion side, the silver and black coloring matches my shorts

Not wishing to derail, but do you guys who use headgear find that you're more likely to get hit while wearing it?
Let me clarify - I'm not talking about the head being a bigger target, so therefore is more likely to be hit, I'm talking about whether you're less likely to slip, or use head movement because you have (consciously or sub-consciously) the notion that it will hurt less if you eat the occasional jab?
Where there is only a choice between cowardice and violence, I would advise violence.

I've never noticed any difference in impact delivered wearing headgear vs without.
Personally I just try not to get hit regardless because getting hit is degrading and no helmet protects you from looking like a fool to onlookers.
