I have to disagree. The cheap stuff comes out of textile mills in China. Good materials come from Canada, US and japan. The materials used for player gear is no different. With the exception of my leg pad faces being jenpro, its pretty much the same same. Defender nylon, found in high end products will outlast any of the chinese made cordura found in the cheap products. Sunlight alone will bring that crap to an early grave. Many of the stitching that uses kevlar reinforcement will outlast any of the cheapo chinese made threading.

Not only does that alcohol/water mix work great for preventing and removing odors, does not harm materials AND it can be used to make SLUSHY ice packs for those hard to ice areas like an ankle or elbow. mixed 3:1 part water works a bit better as an icepack.
