Hooked on Comfort: A Hooker's Review of the Body Armour Ventilator Scrum Cap

Lana Skeldon - Scotland

As a hooker, the scrum is my happy place. Pure grit, strength, and technique all clashing together – love it. But they aren't all sunshine and rainbows.

Lineouts are a whole other beast. That's the time when I need laser focus and a clear head to get the ball in straight and clean.

Which makes finding the right scrum cap like finding a golden snitch – it needs to be be comfy, protect the old melon like Fort Knox, and not block your view of what's happening on the pitch.

That's why I was delighted when Rugbystuff.com agreed to send me a new Body Armour Ventilator Scrum Cap prior to the TikTok Six Nations. Let me tell you, this scrum cap puts all the others to shame. It's the undisputed king of head protection on the market.

First of all, forget about those scrum meltdowns where you feel like your head's about to explode. The ventilation on this thing is unreal. Keeps my head cool and comfy even in the most hectic scrums. No more comfort issues mid-scrum for this hooker, just pure focus throughout the game.

Second, some scrum caps make you feel like you're peering through a letterbox. Not the Ventilator! The design lets you see everything on the pitch, perfect for spotting those sneaky back-row plays brewing in the ruck. No surprises here, folks, I see it all!

Finally, as a hooker, going in head first is practically in the job description. That's why good protection is key. The Body Armour Ventilator does not disappoint. Top-notch padding soaks up all the bumps and bruises that come with scrummaging. It's like wearing a magic shield for your heid!


    All in all, this scrum cap gets a perfect five out of five stars from me. It's the full package – comfy, protective, and lets you see everything that's happening on the pitch.
