Agreed and they list the weights of all products! For someone as obsessive about weight of equipment as I am it's a great source of info

I am lucky to have Total Hockey and Hockey Giant within 15 minutes of my house. Total Hockey has some great prices and the store is one of the cleanest and best laid out retail stores I've ever seen. Hockey Giant has gotten better over the years, but their prices are usually higher than anyone else and they don't stock nearly as much as they say they do online. I haven't bought much from them as I'll support my LHS that knows me by name.

I believe TotalHockey ships from somewhere on the east coast. IW is from NorCal, HM and HG ship from SoCal. That will affect how quickly the product will get delivered.

Hockey Monkey has low prices, but that's about it. Pray you never have to return anything or need decent service.

Another vote for the Warehouse!

Has anyone ordered custom jerseys with numbering, cresting, etc. from Hockey Monkey? Their prices are a hell of a lot lower (especially the numbers) than anything I can find locally but I know nothing of their quality.

No but there was a thread about custom jerseys and someone recommended a good site for jerseys and they were pretty cheap but I don't remember the site.

I am from Boston, just moved out to San diego a few months ago, Pure Hockey in New England is a good retailer. I had always gone to the store because I lived right by one, but since being out here I have checked out there website and it's pretty good, no problems so far, ordered a few sticks and some shin pads. I guess they are doing price matching now too so their prices are as low as monkey and total if you find a product there. They were always good to me in store, and I like their website. I saw a couple weeks ago they added some equipment fitting videos, and even though they are just some college players who clearly arent in front of a camera often, they do know what they are talking about, so i can get some in store type of help from my office. Pretty cool idea.

I live in canada and i have to say that pro hockey life is really expensive and the service there isn't too good, the people there look like they got the job simply because they play elite level ice hockey but nobody helps you, they're way too lazy. I'll admit though that if you want anything high end in hockey, thats the place to go (if your in canada). I love the service icewarehouse give, and their reviews are amazing. HockeyMonkey is also good, i like their pricing but dont get anything from there if you live in canada, the shipping is way too much and then add the custom and tax for going over the border, it'll be less expensive to just go to hockey life, at least you can see the stuff you're about to buy and try it out. I wish that Tyson from icewarehouse was at every store, that guy seems like he can help anyone in hockey no matter what skill level or age level or size!

for customer service Source for Sports (London) (hockeygeeks.com) is hands down the best ... I've bought from them and HM (well, goalie monkey) and they're both great, but when you need help, SFS is fantastic.

I've been to both stores and the people at HM look like a bunch a high schoolers who really don't know much and act like they couldn't care less. Completely the opposite at SFS ... Just my experience though.

Go with SFS unless you need/want something they can't ship to you - like Bauer.

HM easily. Costs more to ship normally, and with IW, if you order over $100, shipping is free.

HM is great, only thing that sucks about them (for me at least) is that they're in the west coast. Takes a week+ to get stuff shipped to NY.

Why not drive to their store in NJ then?

For goalie gear, Planet Goalie is much better than HM, especially if you can get to their store in Harrisburg.

HM told me this friday that the shin pads (G700s) I ordered is out of stock? (49hrs after i placed my order) They said they don't have live inventory. It's my first time purchasing from them so it's not off to a good start. This is what they offered me instead:

Graf G700 Sr. Shin Guards
OPTIONS:
* G500 13inch
* Bauer X30 13inch
* Easton EQ20 13inch
* CCM U 05LE 13inch
* Reebok 7K 13inch

20% off

What do you guys think? I had ordered the G700 at a slick price. $50 + 15% off. I'm a bit disappointed that they couldn't fulfill my order.

7k is the best option. But, if you still want a graf shinpad, try totalhockey. they got graf GS shin for $60. Ordered a pair and its awesome! the best fitting shinpad ever, as well as their elbow pad.
