It's not really mentionably cheaper unless they're cutting better deals than the list price of $1,095 (+ shipping? They do seem to charge shipping but I'd have to enter my address to get a quote). I...

I wear one when I remember to put it in. I've had a chin to knee and nose to knee crash without one and got lucky with no oral injury. Can't hurt.
