depends. you going to be banging with pros? if so, I would go with the ringside. If not, I would rather use the smaller rival.

Those Rival D3O intelli-shock are really, really good head guards.

Well made, good vision, not too bulky, comfy, adjusts well and stay in place most of the time, and seems to take the sting of blows well.

Does everything it should do basically.

All the reviews say they are great and a lot of others at my gym use them. I'm wondering how it compares to the other rival headgear I posted?

I like the look of the black one better but protecting my noggin is obviously the primary concern. If they are very close in absorbtion and protection, I'd go for the black one... if not, I guess I'll be on the d30 bandwagon.
