i use the mission warp sub zero three finger gloves. i love them but now im kinda screwed cause its hard to find the three finger gloves and im so used to playing with them. IF i had to switch i would go with the bauer vapor.

I've been using oakley's for a couple years now. Simply because they are the most comfortable gloves I've ever tried on.

I had Easton Air short cuffs (Dallas Stars pro model) for about 6 years....They were great...sadly, barely anyone makes short cuffs...I moved to the Eagle X70i's, and they are fairly comparable....

I prefer short cuffs for my stickhandling....although I do get a lot of scars and bruises on my forearms!

Eagles.

These are the best gloves I've ever worn. A tad pricey, but they are worth it. To me, I've found the right equipment when I forget I'm wearing it during the game. I forget that I'm wearing these gloves when I play.

Check some out, for real.

I wear some cheap Koho gloves. I always get my wrist injured because they offer no protection but they are way to comfy to throw away.

I've got Bauer Vapor 10's

not the newer model, but this one, all black though

For the past 7 years all I have worn have been Bauer gloves...I love them. They're light, and well built. Plus I really quite like the 3 piece finger. On top of that, they last quite well too. Although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking at upgrading to the XX's

I wear the Louisville R2s..all black. very comfy and breathable. I am looking to upgrade this year to the reebok gloves as I tried some on at my LHS and basically I fell in love with them cause they feel great.

I wear black on black vapor XX gloves. Most comfortable and flexible glove I've ever worn with lots of padding.

I wore my old Jofa 626 gloves for 16 years, but they finally got too hard to re-palm, so now I've got black-and-red Bauer 2000's . I hate short-cuff gloves, but since you have to custom-order the good cuffs, these Bauers are not too bad. They felt soft the first second I wore them, and the palms have lasted 2 1/2 seasons already, so that's a plus!

I have to second the Vapor call here. I just picked up a pair of V's (they were on clearance at Play it Again Sports for next to nothing), and they fit ten times more comfortably than any glove on my pro shop's wall. I don't (asthetically) care for how they curve inwards and flare out at the wrist, but damnned if I care what they look like as long as they fit well and play well.

They'll probably replace my CCM 752s -- we'll see how well they work in a game situation this weekend.

I picked up a pair of Easton Airs on eBay for $40 CDN (brand new by the way) for my ball hockey season. Have fallen in love with them, especially the "wristwrap" protection which protects my wrists from the lumberjacks in my league.

Sherwood Eclipse.

I love the floating wrist protector. I broke both my wrists last year from viscious slashes, so I really depend on them. Plus they're light and have great grip.

Eagles. They are the best by far. For me, gear is perfect when I forget I'm wearing it, and I have completely forgotten about my Eagles for over three years.

Pricey, but not when you consider you'll wear them for years and years without replacing them.

The best.

What gloves do i wear?
Sherwoods

Why?
Because I brought them like 4 years ago and they were cheap at like 50$ or something.

I just bought a pair of 15" CCM pro tacks. I've never had anything but CCM gloves. This is my fourth pair of gloves in my 9 year hockey career, starting with some really cheap CCMs and moving up to nice ones with the second pair. The second pair was impossible to break in, and I can't believe I got another pair of CCMs, but the third pair (second heavy duty pair) was easy to break in and lasted a long time. Only thing is I was like 5'8'' when I bought them, now I'm 6'1'' and the ole 13.5's just don't offer as much protection as I want. So, I went with another pair. They are comfortable, protective, and used by the best, so I've never really had any reason to venture out.

I use Eagles X80i....they shiney blue ones. They are the lightest, most comfortable glove i've ever worn. They also match my uniform perfectly

TPS HGT's, most comfortable gloves i've ever tried on, yes... even more comfortable than my EAGLES.

Eagle X81 in red white and blue. They are the most comfortable glove and most freedom for wrists in a glove on the market, which happens to be what i look for in a glove. Had them for about 2 years and still holding up fine

does anyone know how the TPS HGT's fit compared to old-style (eg non-Vapor) Bauer gloves? i'd like to replace my Bauer Impact 500's with HGT's. will a 13" HGT = 13" Bauer?

HGT's are a traditional fitting glove with some very unique features, however 13" is 13". If you wear 13" gloves of any brand, then you'll need 13" HGT's.

Kind of a side question.. hope the threadstarter doesn't care: What would you guys recommend a beginner? I'm looking to start playing ice hockey, but I don't wanna spend too much on gloves.

Graf 700's.

Pretty sure they don't make these bad boys anymore.

i bought Bauer Impact 500's when i started cuz i didn't want to spend that much either. they lasted me 1.5 seasons of roller and 0.5 seasons of ice. the palms have worn through now, so all in all, not too bad for durability. i'm looking for better gloves this time around.

you prob should spend that much on your 1st set of gear, because you will probably make some mistakes buying the first time around in terms of fit and features etc and it'll take a bit of trial and error to figure out what gear is right for you (that is unless you get v.good advice from your hockey store).

i was trying to figure out if the Bauers and the HGT's have a similar fit because i've heard that just like skates, fit & sizing varies a bit from brand to brand...eg a person may require a 13" in one brand but a 14" in another

As always, what Accord said is wrong. Each company fits a tiny bit differently than the others, even in gloves. I personally wear a 14 inch Vapor XX/XV but I'm a 13 in Easton Airs. It's a bit of personal preference, but also some gloves fit longer/shorter(in the fingers) than others at the same measurement.

Eagle gloves for a couple reasons...our teams 2nd name is Eagles and I bought a pair because Dany Heatley had a pair...navy/gold/navy --> they're beauties!

They are honestly the most comfortable pair I've had, close 2nd would be the Oakley gloves
