Love the whole setup, impeccable. Where did you get the pants/pant covers?

That's pretty sharp. What do you play (competitive, rec league, or pickup)?

Question for goalies, is it considered showing off if you've got all matching gear with a nice matching mask? I know in pickup it's kind of frowned upon if you show up as a skater with all matching gear like you just got dropped off by the team bus. Do you need to have the game to back up that kind of equipment as a goalie?

About the pants, they're KOHO special edition team pants, I obtained through goaliemonkey. There is no shell on it, it's actually all stitched on. I love them!

I play garage league DWHL division 2, we played division 1 last season though. (it's pretty comptitive)

And honestly, I just like having a coordinated setup, I don't like random mix of brands and colors, it looks really whacko.

no not at all.... it costs us the same amount of money whether its matching gear or otherwise.

I'd say the game definitely matters. It's a bit different from all-player gear because having matching pads for a goalie is more of a given, that's why it's not frowned upon. Like you said, a player showing up in all bauer looks like they came off a team-bus or are sponsored. A goalie doing it just looks like, well, a goalie.

Being a goalie, wearing fancy equipment is a double-edged sword. People expect you to be good, but on the flipside if you start to gain approval at all, you look "better" in that brand-new top-of-the-line gear. People are idiots like that sometimes.

I find that you either get OCD-type star goalies who have that nice gear because they're obsessed and need to have that gear, have studied and tried out different gear, etc. Then there's the guy who buys it all to look like they're paid or to make up for something else, and then they also don't play well in it. It's rarely an in between if they've got all new gear.

Helmet: Bauer 5100 w/ cage, Bauer 5100 with HS22, S9 with Oakley (not sure the model, friend gave it to me)
Shoulders: None, any suggestions?
Gloves: Vapor XXX, R8, Pro 4 Roll (x2)
Elbows: RBK 6K
Pants: One70s (The ones under the One90s - these pants are incredible. any suggestions of comparable pants from, say, Bauer, Warrior, Easton?)
Shins: Nike/Bauer Pro Light Speed, RBK 7K KFS
Skates: Bauer XXXX, Easton EQ50
Sticks: Bauer XV shaft w/ Kovalev Dynasty blade (Pro flex), 08/09 Dolo shaft w/ O'Sullivan pro stock Warrior blade(100 flex), SE16 shaft with P91a X60 blade (100 Flex), Dynasty Kremlin (75 flex), Dolomite Smyth (87 flex)
Bag: CCM Junior size (not sure the model)

I really would love a second pair of XXX gloves, but that seems like a pipe dream, and I'm kind of set on the P91A/Kovalev pattern so the Kremlin, Smyth and Malkin prostock blade might get moved one day.

I purchased (and killed) a few gloves since, but my current is the Bonafide X, which is awesome, and seems pretty durable. I also like the looser fit. I killed 2 sticks since this post, so my current #1 stick is the Crazy Light, just yesterday bombed a great clapper with it, which left even my own teammates in awe... Might not be the best stick for stickhandling, but man, can it shoot !
