I have been training in kickboxing for six years, and nine years in karate. I have also trained in Brazilian jiu jitsu, judo, and taekwondo. From all of the experiences that I have had with headgears, I feel that the Top Ten headgear was superior to all the rest. It fits perfectly around my head with a comfortable feel, and it is very snug. The design prevents you from loosing peripheral vision unlike other headgear that I have used. I have taken many hits with this headgear on my head, and some of witch I feet would have knocked me out if I was wearing any other headgear. I have had this headgear for a little over four years now and its still just like new, except the straps are a little worn on the edges and the logo is worn off. This piece of equipment is a little pricier than some of the other headgears available out there, but for the quality it's worth it. I would recommend this headgear for all martial artists.
