Old school goalie mask

Anywhere online, preferably a legit hockey website, that sells them?I was looking to buy a mask similar to Parent or Pelle Lindbergh's. My plan is to put additional padding inside the mask. This is for roller hockey. The mask was to go along with brown retro pads. I'm a fan of the retro look, so any advice would be much appreciated.

If you do, watch your eyes (as the subject of your second photograph will attest to).

It seems like most of the goalie suppliers do?

I don't know how protective they are, Its really the stiffness of the shell that protects you by distributing the load, foam just cushions the impact... but with a fast puck the foam wont be enough.

Have you gotten hit in the head with a hard shot yet? Cool looking retro mask is cool... but well functioning brain protection is actually quite a bit cooler.

Have you tried ebay? I LEGIT used to have this mask, used it for road hockey all the time! If you're playing competitive make sure you check if it's legal first! Not sure what kind of damage one of those round orange balls would do, but this mask protected me against tennis balls just fine


And you can find more on ebay that cost significantly higher. Something like these might be more what you're looking for.

NHL player that wore those types of masks were routinely hurt and cut by shots hitting them in the face.

Today, they use their face to make saves.

Don't use the old style masks unless the pucks are soft or the shots slow or both.
