^what do you mean by "why did I not dare to do this"? Was it fun? Anyone see you in headgear and or possibly ask/talk about headgear?

Lots of people saw me but nobody spoke to me.  They pretended not to notice.

Old thread, time to bring it back up  :)

I saw a couple, he was wearing headgear and a hat to disguise it slightly.
This was probably around 1995.  Never seen adult with headgear since.

Im 28 yrs old and ive gone out in public quite a few times wearing my headgear (the hg im wearing in my avatar) and it is both extremely nerve racking and a rush. Its almost dream like or a surreal moment when some people approach me whether intrigued by my headgear and ask about it or just start generalized conversation. To be talking to some stranger, while inside a vast series of straps and pads enveloping my head connecting to metal bars and wires protruding out of my mouth is just a crazy experience...

I wear my cervical headgear often in public and love people staring at me or asking me questions about my gear.  If anyone here wants to spend time in public with me in public wearing my headgear - I would love it.  I live in the Boston MA area.

Do you ever run into people you know? That would be my concern.

I live in a small town of 5000 people so everyone knows everybody so wearing my headgear in public became a common thing for me. Actually the kids asked more questions than the adults.

Andys,  to answer your question...

No I have never ran into anybody I know thank god! "knock on wood" lol   I also do most of my geared outings in more rural areas and before noon prodominantly too.
I will never forget my very first time talking with another person  in public while strapped into my headgear. It was an experience I will always remember and im sure they will forever remember it too with how massive and extensive my headgear is lol

17yr old male at my school (nearly adult!) wore cervical during the school day and then, years later on a motorcycling holiday in France I saw a teenager (maybe early twenties), waiting to cross the road in hi-pull headgear...

That's impressive! If I ever saw someone like that it would take my every being to not stare in fascination. I wouldn't be able to help it...

I only saw an adult "in the wild" once in my life - late 90's.  I've seen headgear -  that wasn't me or a pal - only once in about 15 years.  But I do know that its still widely used - just not outside the privacy of the bedroom.  I wonder what changed, in my youth, you wore it all day every day whether you wanted to or not.  Now it seems parents are a lot more forgiving.
