It'll get you in May 31, 2018
Reviewer: Godrick from grand rapids, MI United States  
If you are looking for some back of the head protection for HEMA tournaments (or SCA Cut & Thrust) this will get you past the requirements.  SCA will require you to sew the gaps in the back shut to be compliant, but that's not that hard.

However, the protection from this thing is not the greatest.  It's adequate but some modifications were required for me to truly feel protected.  The good news is that it is easy to modify.  You can put in some pvc inserts (or make your own by cutting some PVC piped and flattening it out into a plate) that slip right into the back "pockets".  That makes this mask go from good to great.

However, some amount of additional work is required to get it truly "secure" to the mask.  Otherwise you will have to readjust mid fight if you take certain hits on it.

Mask Cover January 29, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Clearwater, FL United States  
Wonderful protection, but it only stays on the mask with a single elastic band, so it tends to move about and fall off.

Solid mask cover September 30, 2017
Reviewer: James Carr from Provo, UT United States  
Its a really good mask cover. I originally got an Absolute Force mask and the cover fits it perfectly (like you'd expect)

Not quite secure enough December 12, 2016
Reviewer: Jerrod Miller from Spokane, WA United States  
Another member in my club got this and the same mask that I have.  His fit pretty loose, and so did mine (as one would expect).  I added a leather strap and buckle under the chin to better hold things in place and it is much better.  I'd suggest AF replace their elastic band with something firmer and adjustable (I used leather, but synthetic would be fine).
