As a new goalie it takes me about 30-45 minutes to get all of my gear on and adjusted. I'm getting faster at it, but there's a ton of tweaking that I do. I tie my goalie skates as tight as possible (Bauer One60s) and walk around a bit before putting on my legpads.
I also have a checklist for packing and what order I put things on.
-long sleeve compression shirt (I use an easton baseball one)
