Cliff Keen Signature Headgear
The benefits of wearing protective headgear while participating in all levels of folkstyle wrestling competitions are well documented. This type of equipment helps prevent cauliflower ear and guards against other bruises, impacts, and abrasions around the ears and, in some cases, near the forehead too.

But despite these protective properties, most wrestlers choose new headgear based on factors such as comfort, fit, style, and color rather than the amount of coverage offered. These athletes are more concerned about being comfortable and looking good on the mat than about protecting their ears, which is why ear guards are such a rare sight at practices.

Even if you’re more interested in style than protection, the fact of the matter is that you must wear approved headgear during official matches. To help you narrow down your choices, here are some of’s bestsellers:
