Don’t let them get cold or injured
Typical ice hockey conditions are hidden within its name. This game, whether played in an arena or outside, will always be played on ice and therefore in colder temperatures. Of course, players rarely even notice this fact. Ice hockey is a fact and active game and players rarely get cold. Maybe only the most bored goalie can get occasional shivers from the low temperatures.
Hockey is a famously violent game. High speed crashes, falls and contact between players is common. That is why you need appropriate protective equipment for different parts of your body.
For both of these problems, there is a common solution – appropriate and professional ice hockey gloves. These gloves are highly specialized and suitable for all conditions and situations one might experience on a hockey field. Without gloves, broken palms and fingers might be one of the most common injuries in the game. No mistake – they still are common, only not that serious, thanks to the protection.
What can I choose from
Size. Just as with most of the protective equipment we have at HockeyPoint, ice hockey gloves are divided between different age groups – junior and senior gloves. These are, of course, different in size, but it varies wildly between age groups as well. Everybody has their own comfortable size, that is why we have gathered gloves from sizes XS to XL. It is important that hockey gloves fit well, so we don’t recommend experimenting with sizes.
Brand and color. When it comes to hockey equipment, a lot of players try to find the same brand for all their equipment. If that is your thing – you have come to the right place. We have hockey gloves from CCM, Bauer, Jackson, Reebok and others. If you have a favorite color – you will most probably be able to find it here as well. Most hockey gloves are dark by default. Having tacky gloves that are an eye catcher would be a disadvantage to the player, but they may have some colorful nuances, so gloves that fit for your color style can be easily found.
Palms. For ice hockey gloves there are not many things to add. They are just as functional as they need to be. But for those times, they may feel uncomfortable, too big or already worn out, you can buy additional inner gloves – palms, to help you restore the quality of your glove. If you usually share gloves with other players, this is a great way to think about hygiene, while sharing gloves.
How much should I put aside?
Just as with a lot of other hockey equipment, there is quite a big price range for hockey gloves. Most affordable gloves start from just under 40 EUR, but most expensive around 150 EUR. The only major difference between these products – thickness. Cheaper products are not as thick as more expensive hockey gloves, therefore they may offer less protection in dangerous game situations. We suggest considering this when you are buying gloves for training sessions or the real games.
