Depends on what kind of fit you like.
For people that like loose feeling gloves. Bauer or Nike Bauer 4 rolls are pretty much the standard. The backroll is really loose on the hands and they are really protective for the price point, having plastic inserts throughout the glove at only 90 dollars. Many high end gloves priced in the 120-150 range dont have plastic inserts in the gloves, such as my Eagle x70's.
If you like a tighter fit, the Bauer Vapor xxxx pros are really snug all over the hand and in the cuff and also have inserts and are around 120.
Personally, I ordered a pair of Eagle PPF + (14.5 in vs the standard 14 in) and they are the nicest gloves I've ever had. Super light, stay really dry and cool while playing, plastic inserts for protection and have a really mobile cuff which is important to me. If price is not an object, these are the way to go.
