New Gloves

I am currently looking at purchasing some new gloves. My last pair were Bauer xxxx's that I loved. Are the new vapor gloves (looking at the X:40) fairly similar to the xxxx's as far as fit goes? I heard the cuff was bigger on the X:40's. I am also looking at the one75's. Unfortunately there is no lhs near me to go and try these on.

Yes, the Vapor series of gloves are similar fitting, which is to say the 'Tapered' fit meaning a more roomy palm/backroll area and tighter fingers. Bauer's Supreme series is a more tight-fitting 'Anatomical' fit.

I'd go for the 40's. I had the One75's and protection was pretty weak.

Thanks for the replies. Anyone here have the X30's? I was looking at those as well. I only play in a beer league and don't really need top of the line equipment.

I'd spring for the X40's, $20 for plastic inserts is a very small price to pay to avoid broken or bruised fingers. Again, I was using the One75's which don't have inserts and recommend against it.

Thanks Jarick. I will probably look into ordering the X40's.

I cannot comment on the mid level gloves, per se BUT the fit should be across the board.

The Supremes since the one90 have been SUPER tight in the hand. The cuff is also pretty tight, although not restrictive.

The Vapors have always been on the tighter side but not extremely tight like the new Supremes. The Vapor 10, XX and XXXX were all similar fits. The Vapor XXX was a hair looser in the hand with a HUGE cuff flair. The X:60 is EXACTLY between the XXXX and XXX, in the cuff.
