I'd like to see a link to the smartgear thingy.
I agree

I have seen three adults in headgear in public that I can recall, but all were a long time ago.  One was a man who was about 20 in cervical headgear on a college campus, another was a female in a café in highpull headgear with j-hooks, and another was a female in her 30's wearing cervical gear in a department store.  All three of these were in the late 1970's/early 1980's.

I've only seen an adult wearing headgear in public once. About 10 years ago I saw a woman in her early 20s wearing combination headgear. She just happened to come in to the coffee shop where my girlfriend was working on a Sunday morning. I was surprised because you don't see headgear here all that often, especially on adults.

I haven't seen someone my own age or older wearing headgear in public since I was 14 in the 90s. From time to time I would see it on kids, but after that point, never anyone older and never on an adult at any point.

Never. But I've also never seen **anyone** wear headgear out in public IRL, so...

I feel like if I ever did see someone, it would take everything in me to not stare.

I have seen it one time on a little kid at Seattle International Airport. He was wearing high pull headgear. I have also seen a Rigid External Device aka RED Halo appliance in public on a girl most likely in her 30s. Maybe I should go public and make someone's day lol...

I wear my headgear in public when I'm out of town..... love the feeling of people staring! Not many people talk to me about it... usually just look.

I am male 46 in Boston and I wore my fake braces with cervical headgear in a Staples store today.  It was such a thrill but nobody commented or stared.

Same  here, wore my HG in public in a supermarket. And had to wait in a long cue before the cashier, next to the entrance.
Have to say i was gathering guts in the car before entering.

I just loved the feeling :)

Gosh I want to go public (daytime) to bad, unfortunately I'm extremely scared and feel that I just need someone at me side mainly someone with orthodontic braces/Headgear fet to support me and ease the sheer awkwardness and stares for me. What's the feeling like after you have fulfilled your Public Headgear Appearance??
