    Women’s breezers with better protection

    The reason why men's pants don't and won't ever fit a female properly is that women are longer from the knee to the hip than a man. That's athletic woman, today's "average" woman, any woman, period. From there, the waist not being wide enough for today's "average" woman is an entirely different story.

    Women’s breezers with better protection

    A number of reasons behind this. 1. As you mentioned, the gear is made for the woman ATHLETE, not the average woman of today. Unfortunately, the average woman today would only fit into men's hockey pants, which are poorly sized for their bodies in a number of areas. 2. To sell women's protective, pants especially, you need a woman who uses it and understands the proper fitting of it, and the reason a female hockey player needs it over men's gear.

    Expensive bags worth it?

    Not sure if the Alkali bag is still made in its original factory, however, the reason that it has been so durable is the craftsmanship. It is sewn unlike any hockey bag on the market, although, from finished product, you'd never know.

    2018-2019 Gear Sightings

    I think Bauer is going to have a hard time switching him back while the Leafs are in the playoffs, as EQMs don't want reps around this time of year. They may be on summer vacation after tomorrow night; we'll see. I've been told by those who know that AMs deal with Bauer was patterned off of Crosby's deal with CCM and, as a former pro rep, for him to switch is most likely months (or the entire season) of being unhappy with product, not just the past few games or weeks. It's now up to Bauer to either work with him or let him walk... The latter wouldn't surprise me.

    Just because they are made of tarpaulin doesn't mean they are great. If the craftsmanship sucks, it doesn't matter what the bag is made of.

    When Did You Get Bored With Acquiring New Hockey Gear?

    Hi Dave. Didn't realize you changed your name on here. There must be 3500+ pro, college, and junior players that are using figure skates to play hockey then...

    Opinions are like assholes; some are larger than others. I'll take the word of a guy who has fitted 900+ pairs of the things over the word of others, EVERY TIME! The idea that a custom skate should fit perfect right out of the box is scary to me. Whether it's scanning, measurements, whatever, there will ALWAYS be something not quite perfect, and there will be tinkering needed, even just the slightest bit, in order to get it 100%. Maybe YOUR idea of 100% is less than, only because TO YOU, the skates fit you BETTER than your last pair. You might be surprised what can be done at a far less cost than ordering custom skates. With that said, lots of Kool-Aid being consumed here lately; custom skates, Sparks, crazy times!
  13. It's this mentality that will keep the stick from selling unless someone goes and scores 50 this coming NHL season and directly attributes it to the stick. Then what?

    Pant Stripe Fabric

    420D Nylon Edges aren't serged, but folded over, then straight stitch sewn. On a commercial machine, they make folders that take in the fabric for you. So, say you want a 3" stripe and have a 1/4" folder, you cut the stripe to 3 1/2", feed through the machine and it will fold and sew 1/4". Flip it over and do the same, then, you'll straight stitch it onto your pant shell. Largest stripe on bottom, smaller on top if doing multiple colors.

    And sometimes the customer just tells you that the "customer is always right" and they end up with a shitty looking product despite you telling them, in your professional opinion, that it WILL look shitty.
