Head Gear Design
Now, this keg gear is designed for boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai or Martial Arts which means with the taper of this cheekpiece you can still see kicks coming. If this taper is incorrect, you’ll only be able to see some punches and you won’t be able to see kicks or knees so it’s essential when you’re buying a headgear to buy one that’s correctly made and not just a whole lot of padding on the cheek that hasn’t been thought about.
The next thing is ear protection. It comes with extra fat and it’s got an eardrum protector which just stops the glove making a seal there and possibly popping your eardrum. So we’ve got injected mould padding and shaping all around the chins. Another interesting feature is it’s got a Punchcool® chin piece in there and that’s a sweat looking lining to stop slipping.
To fix this headgear on your head you simply adjust the lace on top. You can then sit down in a chair and get someone else to tie it, where it’s comfortable and then you never touch it again from then on. To put it on you just tear the back open and slip it on and you’re done. So quite an easy on/off system and a Punchcool® lining right throughout the chin piece, the forward band as well so that you don’t slip and slide around this headgear. So massive protection but the skill of this headgear is how it’s shaped and made. So you’ll find this after about three weeks, it sweats in and moulds to your face. So don’t lend it to someone else once you’ve got them onto your own head as they will bust into your own facial features.
They come in red/black, black and blue/black. The sizing options are medium and large. But the solid black does come in a small as well. Which is ideal for juniors. So you’ve got a lot of choices with this headgear. The great feature of this headgear is the fit. It’s tight for most adults in the large size and this is the most recommended size. Whereas the medium size is suitable for youths and smaller people.
Large Size – For most Adults with an average to large-sized head.
Medium Size – For Small Adults and Youths.
Small Size – For Children.
In summary, the Trophy Getters® Full Face Head Gear has been in the Punch® Equipment range for over 18 years and is arguably our best headgear available online. It’s a superb headgear for safety and this is the main reason why it’s so popular. It will protect your face and nose during sparring as well as providing solid ear protection from incoming blows.
