Advice: Goalie Masks

Hey there, everyone! I've recently begun playing in an amateur (read very amateur) dek hockey league with some friends and am looking for a goalie mask or helmet with a cage that I can use when I'm between the pipes. I have a kind of big head, about 24 and a half inches around or so. All of the hats that I wear have to be an extra large to fit comfortably. To give you a reference, I recently tried on an extra large Bauer 4500 and it didn't fit at all. Does anybody have any suggestions out there for a not too expensive mask or helmet that will fit me? Thanks!

eddy masks (their extra large) are by far the biggest on the retail market for goalie masks.

it should fit you because it says it will fit 7 5/8 hat size to 8 1/4 iirc

eddy masks are generally in the 300-400 dollar range, thats quite reasonable for an ice hockey goalie mask.

if not, you will have to go custom, protechsport (michel doganieri) does customs for 300 + tax and shipping and you get it custom padded to the face mold you send him, he makes very good quality stuff as evident by the fact that luongo theodore broduer giguere all wear his mask. The down side with ordering from michel is that the waittime is anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks
