    I had one of these

    http://www.goldentiger.com/shop/sho...29151644251&pn=1&sub_id=001002002&listg=gosub

    but I don't want to go with that again (see post below)

    I've used this also

    http://www.goldentiger.com/shop/sho...52915243921&pn=1&sub_id=001002002&listg=gosub

    def. sturdier but I have a big nose and those have less room...the cross bar hits the bridge of my nose if I eat even a soft jab...not so bad but I get a bruise across the bridge of my nose with just light sparring, if I take a shot like the one that broke my other headgear w/this it'll break my nose...

    Is there anything better available?:dunno:

    I always hated those headgears because they always messed up my vision and some of them were hard to breathe in. I just used to wear those regular boxing headgears where you have nothing in front but it covers the rest of the had.

    I like that first one alot. The ones we have at our gym have a cage in the front and resemble hockey face masks. I hate them and never use them, but it's they're a must when we're working ground and pound with elbows.
