You'll perform up to your potential with plenty of practice and the right hockey goalie gear. Leg pads are available with both plastic clips and metal clips. Plastic clips are easier to open and close and recommended for youth players. Metal clips prove more durable but are often more difficult to use.
Chest protection is vital for goaltenders, offering a barrier between the puck and your chest and heart areas. Chest pads typically feature nylon wrapped around layers of resilient foam. Despite the name, chest protectors actually safeguard most of the upper body and generally include a clavicle protector, extended shoulder caps and floaters for the biceps.
When shopping for a goalie catching glove, look for a molded, one-piece thumb area and pre-curved palm with individual finger compartments.
