Bauer’s New Vapor 2X Pro Gloves and Protectives – Product Review
Heading back to hockey?
Then you need to get the Bauer 2X Pro Hockey Gloves!
Second only to a great pair of hockey skates, we believe that it is critical that a hockey player hits the ice with the right pair of gloves—after all, an awesome twig is useless if you don't have the right gloves for stickhandling!
Made for an elite level player, the Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Gloves are the lightest pro-level hockey glove on the market—at just 265 grams.
The gloves feature a tighter fit in the fingers, with a wider fit on the cuff, so that you have tons of wrist mobility and a great feel for your stick with these gloves on.
We like how these gloves gives you ample protection without a ton of weight, and the Thermo Core lining keeps your fingers warm, without getting sweaty (who wants a stinky, sweaty glove? Not us!)
Besides being super-light, super-mobile, and warm, the gloves also feature Bauer's Connect Plus Palm, which we found helps enormously with stickhandling.
You wouldn't play any other sport with 2 or 3 lb weights hanging from your hands, so ditch your old, heavy, unwieldy hockey gloves and get a pair of Bauer's ultra-light 2X Pro Hockey Gloves!
You want to step up your hockey game? Get these gloves!
The Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Hockey Elbow Pad and Shin Guard
Bauer's new Vapor 2X Pro Shin Guard and Elbow Pad are, again, the lightest-elite level guards and pads on the market.
We love how both fit better and are easier to move in than previous generations of protectives: the shin guard with its Dynaflex and Tune Fit Strap, and the elbow pad with its Comfort Edge and Sleeve Fit Bicep.
As with pretty much everything in Bauer's Vapor 2X Pro line-up, they both also feature the super-strong and ultra-light CURV composite materials for protection.
The liner built into the calf guard does a great job of protecting against sticks to the legs, and the strong elbow pad will protect players from heavy impacts.
The Bauer 2X Pro Hockey Pants
The Vapor 2X Pro Hockey Pants are just 1250 grams!
First impressions? We love how the cut of the pants has been refined to move with your body and the pants mimic the natural, forward hip hinge you have as you skate on the ice.
We also really liked how the spine protector moves with you as you move, while the design still frees up your core for maximum agility.
Head and Shoulders Above the Rest!
When you first pick up the Vapor 2X PRO Shoulder Pads, you're going to be awed by how light they are. We know we were!
As with everything else in the Vapor 2X Pro line-up, the shoulder pads use super-strong, ultra-light foam and super-light, rigid CURV composite materials.
If you want to be literally pounds lighter on the ice than the guy next to you, with better mobility, and better protection than you ever had before, you have to check out the Bauer Vapor Pro X line-up!
