Cut the brim off a hat, wear the hat as you normally would and the stiff part in the front should protect you from a frontal shot.


Why would you cut the brim off? Wear the hat backwards so the brim can protect the back of your head.

If you are looking for a headwrap try this guy http://blackleafoutf...rs.com/feb.html . Sam Is a great guy to deal with and you can customize your headwrap.

I love my Ban-Du's. They aren't super padded for protection, but they absorb sweat better than any other headband i've tried. And they protect your hair from getting shell in it and keep the sun off back of your neck. I love em. Have 4 currently. Won't play without one. Even had Sam custom make me two "ninja" ones for me, so i can be leet ninja too. Got one in Joker theme and one in Red. Fear me.

And no, i have yet to trip on them, though i know i will one day. LOL

If you are truly worried about head shots, look into Hundredth Monkey and their Turtle Caps. They are baseball caps with a rubber shell on the inside of the dome. I had one back before they had sizes, and were just one size fits all, which we all know is soooo not true. Was great, took many a bounce to the top of the head and felt nothing. Only problems were one size fits all isn't true when you have a huge head like me. And they don't breathe well at all. Now they have added sizes and a size chart in recent years. So you can get a proper fit. Don't know about ventilation though. Great for taking shots off the head though.

I have been shot plenty of times on the front part of my head. even from 10 ft away,and it sting a bit but no big deal.
This shot was just abvoe the temple. just where my mask ends. :eck: it dropped me like a sack of flour from the back of a truck. (just picture it)

The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

I started out wearing a baseball cap backwards. Then I got nailed right on that little button on the top. Yikes! Now I wear a bandana.
