    2019 Gear Releases

    Huh. Well, that's kind of disappointing. I figured a high-end traditional pant would've been a given, seeing how popular the Supreme One95/Nexus 1000/Nexus 1N have always been, but maybe I'm just speaking for a niche crowd that snaps up the pro stock models on eBay? Still kind of curious to see what they roll out before snapping up 1N's on clearance.

    This is quickly turning into one of the worst months of my life. I forced myself to give up on someone I cared deeply for, I'm on FMLA/STD leave from work (which keeps me away from the stress, but the thought of being useless makes me feel like it's a double-edged sword), I'm on antidepressants for the first time in my life, and to top it all off, my car needs over $1,600 worth of work for it to pass inspection. I'm trying very hard to stay positive, stay active, keep playing hockey, and eating well, but my god... I never imagined things spiraling out of control this much.

    I REALLY want to like both of these jerseys, but my god... whoever's forcing the Adizero collars needs to be burned at the stake.

    2018 Third Jerseys

    As a Flames fan, I'm SUPER-relieved that they went with these. I was a bit surprised at how many people on social media were crying out against seeing these again. Those people are heretics and should be burned at the stake. Also, while I absolutely loathe the new Adidas collars, I think this was as good as they could do here. 100% in favor of seeing their white counterparts as the away jerseys next season. The other added bonus? More chances to snag Flames retro pants and gloves!

    I actually really dig the graphics on it. This and last year's 1N are two of Bauer's best-looking sticks in quite a while.

    CCM 50k skates

    Seconded. Aside from some a few recent minor issues with the quarters near the toe box, my 50Ks are still going strong after over three years. Best pair of skates I've ever owned bar none.

    When Does Bauer Release New Pants

    Ooh... I like that they're finally ditching that ugly white/gray logo on the front of their retail pants. Once they get around to updating the Nexus line of pants again, and unless they completely shit the bed on them, a new pair will be an automatic buy.

    Good luck with the 1X Lite Stick?

    Same here for the most part, actually. The blade on mine seems okay, and the stick itself has held up well enough after about six months of use, but the stick's pop seemed to only last for about a month. If it weren't for the fact that it's so light, it'd be nearly useless on the ice, though I'd gladly trade some of the weight for longer lasting performance. I won't be buying another one, for sure. In fact, as much as I used to love Bauer, it seems like a lot of their retail products have really dropped off in quality over the last four or five years. Strongly considering seeking greener pastures with other brands, but I digress.

    Product Catalogs from 1994-1997

    I think this is pretty much all we have to offer. Still, there's some really cool stuff to be seen there. Not sure what you're looking for, but best of luck to ya and all.

    From Bauer's Facebook. Possible second gen Vapor 1X gloves on the Jets dude? I'm certainly not seeing a 1S logo where it should be.

    Product catalogs up on MSH by April 2007: 9 Product catalogs up on MSH by April 2017: 1 What is WRONG with you, Big Hockey? Why won't you let me see your glorious spring releases to keep me warm and toasty over the long, cold winter? I'm a privileged, highly avaricious, materialistic member of the consumer culture and I DEMAND to see all of your shiny new toys before all of the filthy plebs do! WHY MUST YOU TEASE ME ARRRGGGGHHHHH (*throws chair across the room*) THIS AFFECTS ME!!!!! (I'm only kidding. I suppose it is kind of a bummer, though. Plus there's what, like, 3 companies now?)

    I dabble in bird/nature photography, and I've been without a telephoto lens for the last five months. I decided I'd put in for a rental this weekend to test out a few lenses ahead of time last month. I figured by mid-March it would start to warm up and I wouldn't have to worry about snow or high winds or any of that nonsense, plus I have tomorrow through Sunday off. Well... Really, nature? All those years of recycling and not running the water while brushing my teeth and this is how you repay me? I hope all the polar bears drown and like seven oil tankers explode this year now.

    Well, I just got back from the post office to ship a girdle first class to Toronto from southeast Pennsylvania. The cost? $36.50. Thirty six frickin' fifty. Canada is now officially on my no-ship list until freight companies decide to stop being extortionists. In addition, I'm reasonably sure the Popeye's I had afterwards gave me food poisoning. Also, as speaking as a forever alone, today is like the first day of winter (screw cold weather), Black Friday, and Hitler's birthday all rolled into one. Lastly, I decided to bitch about all of this on a hockey forum on the Internet. Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

    New stock like Bauer 4000 helmet

    You'd want to check out the Bauer 4500 methinks. (Side note, we can ACTUALLY post topics in the Product Catalogs section!? I didn't even think that was possible. Hell, it never even occurred to me to try. You learn something new everyday, I guess.)
