New Headgear?

HI..I have been trying to find a good headgear for Cory (and CI users) to protect their CI while playing sports or active activity.   I find it is hard to use it with BOTH cochlear on.   And we decided that we rather that we always have, is that Cory use only one while playing anyway.   
The head gear is pretty cool looking compares to many others that I find that are quite bulky.   This one is lightweight and pretty water resistant like material.   It seems to cover up the CI really well, more than I would have thought.. however, I like how it kept his CI in place.   It took a while to figure out the adjustment and keeping Cory still while fumbling around the straps to keep in place and of course, keeping the HEAD gear in right position.  It's hard to do that on a toddler or young kid!!    I ask Cory how does it feels? he said it feels fine..he likes it.  I asked if which one do you like better?  this or bike helmet?  he likes the head gear better.  
One little thing is that the magnet part..(top part) you can still see it bit from the top.  So its NOT entirely covered the whole CI..but it still keeps in place.  Sean thought it was still sticking out..I told him that is OK because you don't really want to put a lot of pressure on the magnet part anyway.   It can be irritating.  The rest part can be smug so it doesn't fall off too easily so you don't have to take the whole thing off and put it back on (like how we had to do that with Cory's bike helmet..it drives me crazy!)   I haven't really tried it out with Cory's playing time because we didn't have the opportunity over the weekend with Soccer finals.  
At least its a start!  see photos.
