Well you could always drive out to Pittsburgh and go to Perani's or drive up to Canada and go to Simmons. I have been out to Perani's and they have a lot of pads.


Been playing goalie since I was about 8 and have had all different pads. Worst pads I ever bought were the CCM Heaton 10's. Used them for one year in Midgets and they were just brutal. Then I moved to the Velocitys and loved them. Used them all the way through high school and then my first 2 years of college. Then last year the ACHA thought it would be cool to make all goalies buy 11'' wide pads. Knowing I only had two years left and needed all new equipment I didn't want to spend $2000 bucks on Velocity's, so I ordered from Simmons. I got the new Ultra Light 5's, and they are pretty much just like the Velocity's. Used them this year and had 0 problems. For about $1200 I got blocker glove and pads. Wouldn't even have been able to get a pair of Velocity's for that price.
