Topic: Racing Seat preference poll - head containment 'ears', or no?
I _like_ the idea of better driver protection - who doesn't?
I found some issues about the 'ears' in this subtopic - most of those were complaints about fit, or restrictions.
Many of the higher cost seats have them; they're not that much more than seats without them.
Some ears don't _look_ (in online pics) particularly sturdy. They may be reinforced, and thinner for better visibility; I don't know.
Most of the forum comments about seats have to do with sizing for large drivers; mounting them to accommodate 'hugely differing size' drivers; or sourcing them. That makes sense.
I don't remember a thread about the 'ears' as a general question, which is why I'm asking (before purchase).
