Depends, there are plenty of factors at play. How much protection do you need, what level are you playing at, full contact or no check, are you willing to buy gear leftover from last year or do you have to have the latest and greatest, and last but not least size and availability.

Not including skates and sticks, you could outfit yourself with some decent gear for under $400.

I bought new elbow, shoulder, gloves and pants last year. It ran me just under $225 and I ended up with some really nice stuff all brand new too.

Best deal had to be my skates. Brand new RBK 8k's for $250. Pants would be a close second, Mission Fuel 110's for $60.
