Lovell Rugby Reviews – The Canterbury Ventilator Rugby Headguard

If you look up ‘headguard’ in the dictionary, you will find a statement along the lines of ‘a padded helmet/hat that is worn to protect the head in contact sports such as rugby’. However, the Canterbury Ventilator Rugby Headguard offers a lot more than just head protection. The Ventilator Headguard is a commonly worn piece of player protection in both the amateur and professional forms of the game making it the most popular headguard in the Canterbury range.


The design of the headguard allows for greater ventilation of heat away from the head (hence the name) therefore reducing your body temperature and helping you to maximise your performance on the field. The aero-matrix patterning has been specially designed to make it more flexible so that it forms more naturally around the head therefore offering greater protection. The front of the headguard is intended to only cover the forehead so that it does not interfere with your vision during your game. There are indents on either side to facilitate your ears along with extra holes so that you can hear your team mates shouting at you.

Fit and Comfort

The superior ultra-lightweight closed cell foam also aids the way the headguard fits and improves breathing whilst wearing it. Other features of the headguard include the laces at the reverse allowing you to adjust how tight it is so that it feels comfortable on your head. Another comfort feature is the soft chinstrap which prevents irritation. The material on the inside has been given anti-microbial treatment which helps to keep the headguard clean.
