I just joined a rec league and they require you to wear a visor, can anyone recommend a good visor.

I don't think so. I saw a guy playing with a mirrored visor and I don't they are CSA.

Here's some by oakley http://hockeymonkey.com/helmets-cage...ds-oakley.html i'm pretty sure no oakley visor's are csa approved

And these are some pretty good csa approved ones
http://hockeymonkey.com/itech-hockey...lds-dx100.html

http://hockeymonkey.com/itech-csx100halfshieldsr.html

Replaceable shields can be bought for both the difference is price is because the dx100 is said to have a better scratch resistant coating.

I used this http://hockeymonkey.com/itech-aviatorhalfshield.html untill i had to change it to a csa approved visor

Typically I find the non-certified ones are a lot better looking than the ones that are certified, I roll with the Itech HS225 Tinted

I haven't exactly figured it out, it might be the size of the visor ie. typically the non-CSA approved visors are a lot smaller, basically they don't come as far down as the ones that are certified.

It shouldnt matter anyways. You sign a waiver stating if you get hurt on their ice you cant sue so why should it matter if you wear a csa cert on or not.

It's a certification similar to UL and CE. I just sent a product to CSA for evaluation last week.

So basically if your visor isn't CSA certified, you're basically skating around with virtually nothing if you wear a non-CSA one?

CSA just has higher standards, I guess that csa approved visors provide more protection, maybe their harder to break or something

While I think oakley has the better optics I stay away from them these days especially in the summer. if you have the helmet in your bag after a game and it heats up the salt deposits from your sweat create a spider web of crap that wont come off.

I've ruined many an oakley shield this way.


Never had a problem with itech though.

Yeah I've seen a couple guys wearing one of those from time to time. Worst of both worlds.

CSA certification for visors applies to two details.

1) It extends past the nose and covers all that wonderful eye-socket-y bone.

2) The thing is damn near bulletproof.

Non-certified visors are more easily breakable, and don't cover as much. I mean, they'll probably still stop the puck, and if you're in a rec league it's unlikely anyone can shoot hard enough to break it. But CSA certified means that it can withstand ridiculous impact.
