Good quality and well designed.

Stability/Adjustability- Another great aspect of this quality headgear is the adjustability, top of the head, two on the back of the head, and the chin strap.

The Rival High Performance training headgear is the best headgear I have ever used. The adjustability of this headgear is amazing and easy. It doesn't move or slip on your head at all even when taking a big punch or kick.

The leather is high quality and soft. The padding is medium density not super soft and not too hard. I feel it absorbs strikes very well.

Vision is excellent in this headgear, but some people may find that it doesn't protect the nose as well as some other headgear. The cheak protectors are smaller than most headgear but in my opinion balance giving you great vision and adequate protection.

One thing it does better than most headgear is protect the temple area. There is now break in the padding around the temple like most headgear has

Last this headgear LOOKS amazing, people comment on how great the headgear looks at the gym all the time. I have the read and black version.

This headgear is awesome. I have never had to stop sparring to fix, move, or straighten. I've used a few other headgear brands and they do not compare. If you're serious about protection, and want a quality product this is it. Coverage is great without hampering vision and the buckle clasp is top quality. Hands down the best headgear you will find.

I'm using it for Muay Thai Kickboxing and couldn't be happier. Until now, I've been using the gym's headgear. This option, while free, brings ill-fitting headgear that is less than sanitary.

Why I choose this headgear:

-Protection- The padding is phenomenal and really sets it apart from cheaper options. It really takes the sting out of a punch and keeps me from flinching as much . This headgear does not have any chin or excessive nose protection. That's exactly how you want it. You chin is safe when

-Visibility- You can see everything excellently, punches, kicks, knees, low and high. There's a trade-off between nose protection and lower visibility, and this headgear strikes an excellent balance. Headgear that has a massive face bar or bulky nose protection can inhibit your ability to see anything low.

-Stability/Adjustability- Another great aspect of this quality headgear is the adjustability, top of the head, two on the back of the head, and the chin strap. Combined with the suede interior, once you get the fitting correct, the headgear feels incredibly solid even without the chinstrap attached. My expensive cycling helmets are fit the same way. For reference, I was between a medium and large size from Rival's chart. After a call to their headquarters in Canadia, they suggested a large to allow more adjustability rather than less.

-Comfort- You should enjoy wearing the headgear, otherwise you won't want to. While any headgear is going to be hotter than training without, you'll forget you're wearing it even after 10 or so rounds.

Amazon lists other headgear starting at $35. However, you'll be disappointed and consider it a waste of money unless you invest in something of quality.

This headgear does not move. It is excellent. I spar with guys who use cheaper headgear and are constantly adjusting it as it slides around their head or off completely. Mine never moves. The best part is that once you have it adjusted to fit your head, you put it on and off using the two velcro straps on the back.

Just be forewarned, you may feel a little exposed in this headgear. There is no chin guard, and my nose sticks out past the cheek guards. I don't know if I would reccomend it for someone's first headgear, but overall it is a real quality product.

I got this as my first headgear and fits perfect, it won't move an inch while sparring again rival makes high quality only and I'm guessing this will last a very very long time

I hate wearing headgear but this headgear has me looking forward to the next session, as im impressed by the comfort, non slip material, and padding. Sure the face is more open than ussual but as a fast boxer i dont mind since i utilize alot of head movement especially since this headgear allows me to do so due to the great range of vision it offers me.
So i say buy it accordingly to your style, i dont recomend for upright non moving boxers or the ones who always duck there head down for uppercuts as you will catch a clean one straight to your nose and below.
No chin padding forces me to keep my chin tucked in for good habits and its no problem since my upper vision isnt obstructed by the headgear. Very light and good looking i enjoy the chin strap its all very well built.

I did karate for a few years but never boxing. Recently I joined an excellent gym (NY Combat Sambo for those of you in the tri-state area), and I needed to quickly research and purchase some gear for MMA sparring.

I spent an entire weekend doing obsessive research and I’m very, VERY happy I chose this Rival product.

It’s light-weight and compact, made with real leather. The chin strap is real leather with a steel belt buckle. Very easy to adjust even with wrapped hands and grappling gloves.

Interior has suede lining to prevent slippage.

I’m 5’7”, probably 140 lbs competition weight. This size Medium fit well with minimal adjustments. I don’t know if I have a big, small, or average head, but a Large would definitely be too big.

The cheek pads cover my face adequately. Some headgears close a little bit more to protect the nose. In some products, protecting the nose more will sacrifice your vision. Among experienced reviewers online, there is some concern about getting the nose broken if the headgear face is more open, but you really have to practice not getting hit. My nose kind of sticks out, but I’d rather have my peripheral vision unobstructed.

The back of the head has a removable pad. According to one review online, some researchers did a study and found that people suffer a concussion when they get knocked out and their head hits the floor.

All in all, I’m VERY happy with my choice. I think it’s adequate for a beginner in sparring and probably adequate for experienced strikers too.
