2.0 out of 5 stars Fundamental design flaw, 11 Jun. 2013
This review is from: Optimum Blitz Extreme Headguard Boys Head Protection (Sports Apparel)
I bought the small boy version for my 7 yr old son who plays full contact union in Sweden. In terms of quality of manufacture and materials it is a good product, where it falls down is that it is poorly proportioned. The ration of the distance of nose/base of forehead to crown of head against head circumference is poor, so that while the circumference is wide enough for my 7 yr old, the lack of depth of the head guard is such that the ear pieces (which lets be honest it is a scrum cap, rubbing the ears are one the the things it is supposed to protect against) ride up much too high. The small boys is probably Ok for my 5yr old daughter but I will look to buy from another manufacturer for my son (who is by no means extra big for 7). Bit disappointed with this product really, if it is designed by rugby players for rugby players its not been designed by any players who have children, my lad will be so disapointed he was looking forwards to getting this and wearing it on Saturday.
