Some things to think about with the full face w/bar.

I've read a lot of reviews (not had the chance to try one myself) and been thinking of getting a set.

Here is what I've found out:

Winning is superior because it comes sized, instead of a "one size fits most", which keeps it from moving around. The OSFM options can move on your head, allowing punches in and the bar/guard to come back and damage the nose.

From the research I've done:

Winning FG 5000:
Pros: Seems to be the best quality, is used by pros like Pacquaio
Cons: Cost
Cost: $370.00

FightGear:
Pros: Comes sized
Cons: (don't know anything about them)
Cost: ($89)

Of the OSFM headgear:

Cleto Reyes
Pros: Said to be good padding
Cons: The bar is metal and headgear is heavy. They felt like Darth Vader.
Cost: ($150 +/-)

Everlast FaceSaver:
Pros: Reviews say padding and fit are good.
Cons: Large. Probably made in a sweatshop in China.
Cost: $99

Let me know if you get a chance to try them out, I'd be curious to hear a review from someone who has actually used it.

I'm leaning towards saving for the Winning headgear. I only have one brain and one handsome face, and they are priceless.


Also...

Considering the price difference, I'm not sure it can't be the same quality, but I've not held either in my hand or used them so I can't say.

Anyway, here is that link: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
