Ok so my gloves are on their way and according to Canada Post they should be here sometime tomorrow, but I am also in need of a headgear. I really like the everlast headgear here is the link:http://www.everlast.com/products.asp?dept=1293
Does anybody here have any experience with the everlast headgear? I really like the amateur competition headgear with cheeks - http://www.everlast.com/prodinfo.asp?number=EVUCH
I like the specifications and especially the fact that on the side of the headgear, when you click on additional images it says:

This writing could be for a show but I'll think positively because I think everlast is a known and reputable brand, I also thought about the cheeks and chin headgear but it doesn't have laces underneath and I am not sure how secure it would be. If you have worn everlast headgear please let me know, which model and how it feels. Thanks in advance!
yes, I use the everlast traditional leather style head gear. I use it for sparring in both boxing and kick boxing.
It's adjustable in the back with velcro (so it's not too snug you can adjust it), also has a nice padding in the back also in case you take a shot to the back of the head.
You can also loosen a strap on that same velcro part in the back to loosen top portion of the headgear so you can adjust it so it doesn't snag your ears in sparring. I had one pair of head gear that did that. I could not adjust it and the head gear would snag the top of my ears at time in sparring so after getting punched in kicked there a few times when I was done my ears were beet red.
I went online that day and ordered the everlast traditional headgear that same day and shit canned my old headgear.....some garbage ass brand I got from my gym..cheap bastards. Any way...I have zero complaints. It covers the cheek area just fine....unless you bruise easily, it's pretty hard to even get a black eye wearing it also..I've been in some heavy wars and took some hard shots with it and the worst i've had is dried blood in my nose later that I didn't even notice until I shower or wipe my nose (knock on wood)
It also has a nice chin strap you can undo in between rounds to breath LOL
