Hayabusa T3 MMA and Boxing Headgear
Today we are talking about another product of the top-quality T3 series by Hayabusa. Exactly, we are reviewing the Hayabusa T3 Striking Headgear.
No doubt about it – the T3 series are the best pieces of equipment that Hayabusa ever made. But more about that later. Now, let us introduce you the Hayabusa brand.
Hayabusa – Strength and Speed
Hayabusa is the Japanese word for Peregrine Falcon – the fastest member of the animal kingdom. It symbolizes the brands’ eagerness to provide the best equipment for optimal performance.
They manufacture top-notch quality gear and apparel for various sports. Such as MMA, Boxing, Kickboxing, Karate, BJJ, and Fitness.
They are currently official equipment supplier for the biggest kickboxing organization in the world – Glory Kickboxing. Not only this but also over the years they have been sponsoring a lot of popular martial artists.
Most famously GSP – former Welterweight and Middleweight champion of the UFC.
- Wide field of vision
- T-Cross closure
- Antimicrobial lining inhibits bacteria
- Crush Zone core for ultimate shock absorption and force dispersion
- One size fits all
The design is simple, yet modern and good-looking, available in 4 different colors.
Hayabusa really succeeded in making a lightweight and protective headgear without being bulky. This kind of low profile design brings to the table many benefits.
Such as wider field of vision, better head movement, and better ability to slip punches.
One of the most important things you should note about the Hayabusa T3 Headgear is its T-Cross closure system, that is both comfortable and secure. As a result of this, you don’t have to worry about shifting headgear even in the hardest sparring sessions.
Protection & Materials
The T3 headguard is definitely one of the most protective headgears available. It includes full face coverage as well as integrated chin-cup.
As we already stated, this is incredible given the fact that the T3 is super lightweight and not bulky at all.
Hayabusa made the headgear from pre-curved materials for a snug fit and comfort.
In addition, there are integrated mesh ear holes and an open top design in order to maximize air circulation. As a result, your head is less likely to heat up and sweat.
The outer shell is made from the famous Vylar engineered leather which has proven durability and quality.
Pros & Cons
+ High quality & durable
+ Multiple color options
+ T-cross strap system fits extremely well
+ Good air circulation
-More expensive than a traditional headgear
If not on sale the price is around 100$ which is definitely not the cheapest option out there.
Of course, sometimes when you are a beginner you don’t want to spend a lot of money for equipment. You can always check out cheaper options like Venum Challenger 2.0 which is also a pretty good headgear.
However, the Hayabusa T3 Headgear is made to an exceptionally high standard and quality.
That being said, if you are serious about combat sports and your protection, then the 100 bucks are money well spent.
