Customer Reviews for Gilbert Ignite Rugby Headguard
5 out of 5 Gilbert Ignite Rugby Headguard
Newitts Verified Purchase (19 Oct 2016)
Both of my children play rugby in the U11 age group and this year have grown out of their original child sized headguards, so I needed replacements and stepped up to these adult models. Their old headguards always seemed a bit of an odd fit though they did the job. The Gilbert Ignite Headguard is a much better piece of equipment. It fits really well, is light and offers lots of ventilation. The chinstrap is a good fit and the velcro holds well. There is good provision for the ears and they seem to be able to hear properly while wearing them. Adjustment via the straps on the back is as with other headguards and works as required. We've got two of these, one black and green a one red and white and they both stand out on the field All round we're very happy with our purchase.

Bought for my son for Christmas. Fits well, fab colour! Still to be tried out in action though. He loves it.

Head gear arrived looked good. This is a Christmas present for my grandson so do not know if it fits yet. Fingers crossed but it looks ideal.
5 out of 5 Does it's job
Newitts Verified Purchase (8 Oct 2015)
Bought for my son who plays under 9s and they have just started tackling this year after tag rugby. Bought more for confidence than actual protection at this age as there are no scrums, rucks or mauls.
With that in mind, it serves its purpose. Good fitting with lots of small foam cells (so it shapes to the head easily) and fairly cool with lots of air holes. Apparently no reduction in heading ability either. Not been used in the wet yet, so can't comment on its ability when soaked.
