Can anyone suggest a good headgear? There are so many brands/types out there I'm curious as to what other people have used and like. I'm looking for one where it will limit face contact as much as possible without restricting view. Trying to avoid the possibility of a broken nose or black eye or whatever when someone goes a little too hard in sparring (as some guys in my class will).

Try on a bunch and see what you're comfortable with. Like you say there is lots out there. However, the best way to avoid getting hit in the face is to KEEP YOUR GUARD UP!!

Have fun!

I use Ringside, myself. I have used others, Title, Fairtex,... The key is the fit and the coverage. Probably the most coverage is Title, but I find it to be very cumbersome.
