This is done by paying attention to the clothing, gear, equipment, and footwear the active people need. Overall, this is a trustworthy brand that will continue to impress as there lines continue to grow.

Materials

The outside shell of this piece of equipment is made of synthetic leather. Not all synthetic leathers are created equal. This one is at the top of its class. It will provide you with exceptional longevity of use and a comfortable fit. In addition, it is exceptionally easy to maintain. Foam is used to absorb impact. The high-density foam that this brand uses is also quite durable and will withstand the test of time. The chinstrap is secured with a standard piece of velcro. It goes through a hook and loop style closure and offers a secure fit. It is important that you make sure that the velcro piece stays free of debris. If lint and other materials build up you may not have a secure fit which could lead to your headgear moving and you sustaining injuries. Everlast treats this item with an antimicrobial treatment. This means that your gear will stay fresher for longer. You won't have to combat the fowl aromas associated with this type of gear.

Protection

You'll be getting a good level of protection throughout your face when you decide to go with this item. It is important to note that you may be lacking some protection in the ear area can. The phone here is not nearly as thick and there are ventilation holes cut out. Consumers have mentioned that they do not feel it is a high enough level of protection for this area. Another place where this product is lacking in protection is at the chin. If you were to take an uppercut it could lead to some serious damage and even a serious injury. Injuries, whether small or large can keep you away from training and inhibit your ability to perform at your best. For the most part, customers are satisfied with the level of protection that the foam padding in this product offers. You will still feel it when you take a hit, however, you should not sustain any major injuries to your face.

Closure

You only have to deal with one simple closure if this is the item you choose to go with. At the chin, there is a hook and loop style strap that is used to keep this piece of gear in place. It is secured by velcro. For many people, this is an excellent thing because it makes it simple to take on and off. However, some people don't feel that it provides a secure enough closure. They would prefer something that uses a buckle. Buckles are more secure, however, as long as you pay attention to your velcro it should not be a problem. When velcro starts to be less secure it is typically due to build up on it. This makes it unable to stick to itself. So, if you take a couple of minutes and make sure that there is no debris or build up in this closure system you should have no issues at all finding a secure fit.

Adjustability

The adjustability for this product is quite Limited. Many Brands build in features to promote adjustability so that every person can find the perfect fit regardless of the size of their head. This product comes in a one-size-fits-most and, as mentioned, is lacking in adjustability. You will have some adjustability with a chinstrap. This is not a great amount, however, it is at least something. Most consumers find that the fit of this item is pretty good. Those of you that have exceptionally small heads may notice quite a bit of movement which can impact you in a negative way. With too much movement you may be left unprotected which could lead to injury. On the other hand, if it's too tight it may still not be sitting in the correct position leaving you with a headache or worse. Overall, we feel that this brand could do a bit to improve the adjustability that this product offers. Consumers agree.

Breathability

You'll be getting a fairly decent level of breathability if you decide to go with this item. There are holes for ventilation on the sides that play a big role in keeping you cool, more importantly, the top of your head is exposed. We lose heat through our heads and when it is completely covered it can make us exceptionally warm. Trapped heat is not what you want. When we are overheated exhaustion can kick in quicker than ever. The thin nature of the straps on the top of this product also helps to reduce heat. Obviously, the thinner the material the lass hot is going to be. Overall, customers are pleased with the level of breathability that they get while using this item. We believe, if you give this piece of protective gear a try, you will also find that it is not overly hot and has a good amount of airflow.

Care

Taking care of this item is a breeze. Oftentimes, it is not so simple. Due to the fact that this item is made of synthetic leather, you can use pretty much anything on it to freshen it up. Whether you prefer soap and water or a disinfecting spray, this material will hold up nicely. It is important to note that depending on what you clean the inside of this with you may need to be careful. Obviously, it's going to be touching your skin so you won't want to use any sort of harsh chemicals. Consumers have mentioned that with simple cleaning frequently this product maintains its look and wonderful feel. It's a major convenience that you won't have to invest much time in caring for this product. Investing time in your physical fitness through high-impact sports like boxing and mixed martial arts takes up quite a bit of time. The fact that this product doesn't is an obvious advantage.

Advantages

This product offers solid protection that is exceptionally simple to care for. You will also get easy adjustability when you go with this option. It is made of truly durable materials and will absorb a great deal of impact. One of the aspects that customers really appreciate about this product is that you will still feel some impact. When you are training you want to keep yourself protected but you also want to prepare yourself for what it's going to be like during competitions. Depending on the type of competition you participating you may not be able to wear any sort of head protection. This can make it difficult due to the fact that you don't know what it's like to truly get hit. So, using a piece of gear like this one will allow you to start to get to feel what it's like without worrying about sustaining any real injuries. Overall, the level of protection and the easy chair plan that this product comes with are the biggest advantages to note.

Disadvantages

There are a few different factors in regards to this item that consumers feel are disadvantages. The first and most commonly complained about aspect is the fact that you won't be getting any chin protection when you're using this item. This means if you take a heavy uppercut you could be down for the count. Another factor that consumers are not thrilled with is the lack of padding near the ears. There are ventilation holes built in which is great for breathability but the padding here is limited. A well-placed hook could cause you some major damage. The only other aspect that we can see being discussed as a negative is the fact that this item only comes in one size and it has limited adjustability. This is a let-down for anyone that has a head that is not average sized. Overall, depending on what you're using this for, these disadvantages may be fairly easy to get past. However, we do believe they should be taken into consideration when deciding what the best option is to keep you protected during your training and competitions.

Value

Consumers feel as if this product is a great value. Not only will it keep you fairly well protected but it comes in at a cost that aims to please. You won't have to worry about taking a major chunk out of your bank account if you want to buy it. In fact, most budgets will absorb it and we're sure you'll feel as if it was barely an inconvenience. While the great price of this product does play its role and why people feel that it is an excellent value, however, it is not the only reason. Consumers are very pleased with the majority of aspects surrounding this item. While it does have its flaws, for the most part, it is a solid piece of protective gear that will last you for a plethora of time. Overall, we would have to agree with consumers that this product is a pretty great value. It really is a good bang for your buck.

This item will decrease the amount of shock that you take when a strike does hit you. The price of this item is quite affordable and it offers a great level of durability making the price even better. Consumers are pleased with the fit and design of it. Everlast is known for coming out with decent products at phenomenal prices. This item goes to prove that this still stands true. While there are other options available on the market that may offer better protection they will likely cost you acts potentially more. Overall, we feel that this is a good item to place your bets on. It will give you a good level of protection and comfort.
