provides some protection
Weaknesses: Does not cover the back your head
Review: The cushioning of the head band does provide enough protection so that you will not be injured by a head shot (assuming it is not a point blank bunker shot!). The cushion will also probably provide additional bounces or no breaks which is helpful. However, if you are looking for protection to the back of the head, this piece of equipment is not for you.

I will definately use the headband, but will have to come up with something to protect from the bunker to the back of the head (maybe avoid getting bunkered, hmm...)

To the manufacturer, I would encourage you to increase the length of the rear flap so that is covers the back of the head. Although it is more likely that you will take a shot the front or side of the head, it is also common to take shots to the back of the head, especially front men.

Conclusion: I will give this item a 7 because it does its job for the most part, but could use some improvement, specifically additional padding to the back of the head.

hope this helps

i agree with tito, getting shot in the back of the head shouldnt be a problem unless your a wuss or you suck....no offense.....but seriously.....

when schnauze or tito get a concussion from a back of the head bunker, I'd love to see if they consider themselves wusses.

When you're up front, and you suddenly find out the rest of your team has been taken out, it's entirely possible to be outflanked and hit from behind. Getting bunkered in the back of the head isn't fun, and neither was the visit to the doctor a day or two afterwards.
