Are durability issues with gear a typical part of hockey, or am I just really unlucky? I bought great that should have been good quality, but so far (with only about 12 hours of skating time in most of my great) I've had the velcro come off my shin guards, the boot of my skates are tearing around the eyelets, and I just noticed that the plastic shoulder caps on my shoulder guards are cracking.
The shin guards weren't a big deal, just annoying to have to sew them straight out of the box. The skates I can kind of understand because although they were in very good condition, I did buy them used. The shoulder guards are frustrating though. The cracks are fairly cosmetic for now and are likely under warranty, returning them would leave me without shoulder guards for the better part of two weeks.
So yeah, after that brief vent, anyone else had issues like this?
