    any one have experience with this training equipment?
    thoughts, experience, criticisms (logical and appropriate please)

    thinking of adding a high gear suit to my training gear arsenal, and would be interested in the communities experiences with it

    thanks in advance

    We've had great luck with it, as a rule. Only been using the head gear, and have the same problem with it that it's unlikely we'll ever get away from- claustrophobic, fogs up, hard to breathe under pressure. Expensive. Hot. That said though, they don't move as much as other pieces (laterally, vertically, when struck or pushed). Plenty of protection for the melon. About as much coverage (surface area) as is possible. Takes hard whacks from, well, everything (fists, elbows, knees, sticks). Visibility is Ok, but not fantastic.

    We don't really play with the body armor, so can't give any sense of that.

    I love the helmets! Not a big fan of the gloves. I think you would be better off with mma gloves.

    You sweat a lot in the suit but I like the design. There is an anti-fog visor now which is a lot better than the old one.
    I believe Blauer sold the High Gear suit to London Bridge Trading.

    using highgear for your training

    no matter what program you have the gear allows you to move realistically and naturally. Visor is brand new, no fogging. Company is redoing gloves and will have new accessories out by July 10.
