I've been using oakley's for a couple years now. Simply because they are the most comfortable gloves I've ever tried on.

I had Easton Air short cuffs (Dallas Stars pro model) for about 6 years....They were great...sadly, barely anyone makes short cuffs...I moved to the Eagle X70i's, and they are fairly comparable....

I prefer short cuffs for my stickhandling....although I do get a lot of scars and bruises on my forearms!

Eagles.

These are the best gloves I've ever worn. A tad pricey, but they are worth it. To me, I've found the right equipment when I forget I'm wearing it during the game. I forget that I'm wearing these gloves when I play.

Check some out, for real.

I wear some cheap Koho gloves. I always get my wrist injured because they offer no protection but they are way to comfy to throw away.

I've got Bauer Vapor 10's

not the newer model, but this one, all black though

http://www.hockeyheaven.com.au/i-glo...r-vapor-10.jpg

For the past 7 years all I have worn have been Bauer gloves...I love them. They're light, and well built. Plus I really quite like the 3 piece finger. On top of that, they last quite well too. Although I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking at upgrading to the XX's

I wear black on black vapor XX gloves. Most comfortable and flexible glove I've ever worn with lots of padding.

I wore my old Jofa 626 gloves for 16 years, but they finally got too hard to re-palm, so now I've got black-and-red Bauer 2000's . I hate short-cuff gloves, but since you have to custom-order the good cuffs, these Bauers are not too bad. They felt soft the first second I wore them, and the palms have lasted 2 1/2 seasons already, so that's a plus!

I have to second the Vapor call here. I just picked up a pair of V's (they were on clearance at Play it Again Sports for next to nothing), and they fit ten times more comfortably than any glove on my pro shop's wall. I don't (asthetically) care for how they curve inwards and flare out at the wrist, but damnned if I care what they look like as long as they fit well and play well.

They'll probably replace my CCM 752s -- we'll see how well they work in a game situation this weekend.

I picked up a pair of Easton Airs on eBay for $40 CDN (brand new by the way) for my ball hockey season. Have fallen in love with them, especially the "wristwrap" protection which protects my wrists from the lumberjacks in my league.

Sherwood Eclipse.

I love the floating wrist protector. I broke both my wrists last year from viscious slashes, so I really depend on them. Plus they're light and have great grip.

Eagles. They are the best by far. For me, gear is perfect when I forget I'm wearing it, and I have completely forgotten about my Eagles for over three years.

Pricey, but not when you consider you'll wear them for years and years without replacing them.

The best.

What gloves do i wear?
Sherwoods

Why?
Because I brought them like 4 years ago and they were cheap at like 50$ or something.

I just bought a pair of 15" CCM pro tacks. I've never had anything but CCM gloves. This is my fourth pair of gloves in my 9 year hockey career, starting with some really cheap CCMs and moving up to nice ones with the second pair. The second pair was impossible to break in, and I can't believe I got another pair of CCMs, but the third pair (second heavy duty pair) was easy to break in and lasted a long time. Only thing is I was like 5'8'' when I bought them, now I'm 6'1'' and the ole 13.5's just don't offer as much protection as I want. So, I went with another pair. They are comfortable, protective, and used by the best, so I've never really had any reason to venture out.

Eagle X81 in red white and blue. They are the most comfortable glove and most freedom for wrists in a glove on the market, which happens to be what i look for in a glove. Had them for about 2 years and still holding up fine

does anyone know how the TPS HGT's fit compared to old-style (eg non-Vapor) Bauer gloves? i'd like to replace my Bauer Impact 500's with HGT's. will a 13" HGT = 13" Bauer?
