For my grandson who has just started contact rugby. Headguard does the job required, and is excellent for the price. Only criticism - velcro strap rough on chin, so I stitched a ribbon around it so it did not scrape his face. BUT it was an inexpensive cap, bought for safety reasons, and if he continues with rugby in later years, I will certainly go back to Canterbury for a more expensive one. Summary - does the job required, as a "starter" hat for the budding rugby player, and I am very pleased with it.
