A bit loose May 6, 2019
Reviewer: Dominic Grilli from Houston, TX United States  
The cover itself is nice, just with my mask (I believe it's small) is a bit loose with it on but it hasn't fallen off so it seems good

Good product. April 15, 2019
Reviewer: Sean Karp from Raleigh, NC United States  
For the cash this thing is really rather good. I just got to use it at Lambpoint and it did it's job admirably. Admittedly the leather is more clothlike than not so painting it was not an option like I wanted, and the BOH protection is just some clear plastic like you'd see hanging in a walk0in fridge to seal the air, but for the money it's not bad. It does slip off the mas fairly easily but nothing that cannot be adapted to need, and that is what this cover seems able to be; adapted to need.

Do not use this by it's lonesome if you are looking at getting hit hard. This is good for light to medium HEMA levels (so light to low SCA power levels). Overall I am quite happy with it so far.

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.
