Weclome back to Grapplers Graveyard ladies and gents. We went out and bought the Hayabusa T3 Boxing Headgear a couple of months back and wanted to give you all a review from real testers. Overall, I was pretty pleased with the headgear but there are some concerns to be aware of.

If you are new to Hayabusa gear I would say this is top-of-the-line products from a quality standpoint. While I personally was not a fan of their BJJ Gi, I am a fan of their striking equipment (boxing gloves, headgear, and shin guards). Hayabusa is a bit more expensive than most brands son the market but I do believe you are getting a higher quality product at the end of the day compared to most.

On the Graveyard Scale, Hayabusa T3 Boxing Headgear is being given an 8.6 out of 10. We are rating boxing headgear based on two qualities mainly, protection of the face and the quality of the product. Price is not a consideration on the rating in the Graveyard Scale but is mentioned as a personal preference. If you are more of a visual person, there is a video review embedded in this post at the bottom.

Hayabusa T3 Boxing Headgear: Best Boxing Headgear on Quality & Splurge

Hayabusa does it again. I have not been impressed twice on the quality of the products I have been getting when purchasing Hayabusa Striking Equipment. When I went and bought boxing headgear I picked up four separate items and I believe that Hayabusa is the best option if you are optimizing for quality equipment that will last you a long time. The material is light on the head (doesn’t feel like a football helmet), cozy and breathable on the inside, is sleek, made with high-quality leather, and most importantly feels very protective.

This specific headgear did not have a nose bar (along with all the boxing headgear we bought) so we dinged points there but the cushion around the cheeks and forward feel incredible.

Protection (6/7)

As mentioned above, we did not give a perfect score because there are some things that feel a little less protected particularly the nose. If you are afraid of getting hit in the nose the T3 boxing headgear is not really optimized for protecting it, but usually when you have a nose bar your field of vision is impaired so it is a tradeoff you have to become comfortable with.

On the top and back of the headgear, there is a velcro cross strap that really allows you to get a boxing headgear to sit comfortably on your head. After a couple of times wearing this, you will start to notice that the headgear starts to almost morph into your head. The foam inside and around the gear itself is soft and cushiony but also firm enough to keep you protected. I feel as though they were really thoughtful about this detail and can tell again that Hayabusa cares about quality over everything.

It should be noted that this headgear does not have much chin protection. if you are concerned about this, there is a model specifically with this feature that you can buy. It is the same price and still offers an incredible field of vision.

For something as important as your brain and head, I do not think going cheap is a good idea. Brain damage is worse in the long run.

Quality/Feel (2.6/3)

We dinged some points here because the strap is a bit uncomfortable underneath the chin area. It reminds me a bit of the strap on t some of the wrestling headgear I wasn’t a fan of but the T3 headgear was not as bad. Even if it is a bit uncomfortable at times the strap itself is still leather so it could have been way worse of a feeling if the material was not well made.

If I could suggest something, I would say find a little, thin piece of foam to slide over the top of this part it the velcro is giving you some issues and you should be good.

Overall, the feeling and sleekness of this boxing headgear is incredible. I believe that anyone in the market to buy this is going to be happy with the purchase.

Price and Personal Preference

I do not think it is a good idea to go cheap with boxing equipment like this. I almost want to sit here and tell you to avoid anything cheap and just shoot for the best quality stuff, especially on headgear. You would have to be dumb to penny-pinch on the protection of your brain and face if you decide to take on MMA or boxing.

Hayabusa T3 boxing/mma headgear is not cheap, I get it. But its cheaper than a bill to fix brain goop that for sure.

Pros

  • Insanely good quality

  • Feels good on the face, cheeks, and forehead

  • Lightweight, yet protective

  • Offers a great field of vision

Cons

  • The chin strap can get a little annoying under the neck

  • No nose bar or chin protection

How to Find the right size

Hayabusa makes it super easy to find the right size boxing headgear. They only really have two sizes so its going to be hard to choose the wrong size to even begin with. Measure the circumference (distance around your head) starting from the front of your forehead with a tape measure. When done, look at the sizing guide on their site and it will tell you want headgear size you should be getting.
