Advice on blockers and gloves and a goalie jock for a new goalie

Hi all,

I'm getting ready to being getting the rest of my goalie gear to move past just skating drills.

What I have:

Skates - BauerOne60 goalie skates
Pants - Reebok 9K goalie pants
Leg Pads - Used Reeboks, they're 9Ks or better

What I need:

Goalie Jock - I like the thought of Reeboks one stop solution. http://www.goaliemonkey.com/reebok-g...-pants-sr.html

Has anyone used there or should I go with a more traditional goalie jock?

Glove and Blocker - I have no predisposition to one brand or another, but I'd like good serviceable gear that is a step above entry level. I'll be buying it through GoalieMonkey.com or their new giant store they opened in Norwood, MA. I'd also like a glove that won't take a long time to break in.

Helmet - I'm going to try on a bunch and stay away from cheap ones. I'm not skimping on a helmet.

Throat Guard - No hard decision here

Neck Collar - They all look alike to me. Is one vastly better than another?

Chest/Arm protector - One step up from entry level. I'd like to spend between $200-250.

Suspenders - No hard decision

I've called a lot of Play it again sports and none of them really clean out their goalie gear thoroughly. A lot of it is really beat up too.

Thanks!
