  1. Cool video analyzing the physics of slapshots: Features a player from University of Alabama-Hunstville. The video hows how usage can impact a stick's flex performance over time (from an 85 to a 57). He's using a Covert Warrior DT1 (2013?), possibly both an 85 flex and a 100 flex.
  2. All prices are negotiable and discounts for buying multiple items Mission Axiom T9 - Size 8D - asking $250 Selling these because I switched to my converted ice skates. I bought them May 30th of last year (HM), so they might be still covered by the 1 year warranty that mission offers should anything go wrong. I got them for our summer roller league and the wheels and bearings that came with the skates (Mission Swiss LE 608 and RinkRat Hornet Spilt XXX Grip 76A) were used exactly 11 times on sport court - 10 games 1 practice. Most of the use I got out of these was playing on smooth concrete over the summer (different set of wheels and bearings). Wheels look to be in really good shape, you can see in the pictures that they still have a lot of life left in them. Both boots are in very good condition, except for some minor aesthetic scrapes you can see in the pictures. They were aired out after every use, and still smell like new skates. They were baked once. Still have the original laces in them if that matters at all. I tried to take as many pics as possible - gallery: http://imgur.com/a/9jUyN#0 If you have any other questions about them lemme know! Gallery of evrything else for sale: http://imgur.com/a/T1t2R#0 Warrior Projekt Girdle - Medium asking $90 Bought and tried these out over the summer. I thought at first that I liked the girdle better than traditional hockey pants, but when I went back to pants again I ended up liking that better. They are in almost new condition, I used them maybe 5 times. I took out the original belt when I bought them since it was so tiny and replaced it with a string from a pair of mesh shorts. I might have the original belt around the house somewhere if you really want it. Edit: found it http://i.imgur.com/J9n5TGH.jpg Warrior Syko shell - New - Medium asking $30 - will lower price if you want to bundle with girdle Tackla Shell - Medium - asking $25 - will lower price if you want to bundle with girdle Decent condition. You can see the back loop needs to be sewn back on (look in gallery), and the stitching right around the butt is a little loose. Used them for roller hockey, and a few times on the ice.

  4. Hate to have to sell these, but I'm moving to a small apartment soon and there won't be much room for collecting. Bought these off another forum back in April and have used them off and on since. Overall condition: 9.5/10 -- some scuff marks along the hips, but no rips, no tears, both zippers intact and working... and overall, still in great shape. I'm throwing in some prostock Buffalo Sabres 3rds Large socks for free as well. Asking $200 shipped within U.S. (if you're in Canada, PM me for a quote) DECIDED TO KEEP, NO LONGER FOR SALE The color in the pictures above make it look a bit too much like a light blue/light orange, but it looks more similar to this:
  5. Hello everyone, I am just curious if anyone owns a Warrior Covert DT2 (Or DT1 or DT3) Hockey Pant and if they can give information on fit and mobility (but mostly fit). This product really stands out to me because of its supposed "forward canter" and "tailored fit," but I am not sure on if these are true. Thank you to all those that respond!

    Helmet suggestions please!

    I'm recovering from a recent concussion I sustained in my Easton S19 Z-Shock. I understand that you can get a concussion in any helmet, but I definitely saw this coming since the inside is almost just EPP foam. That being said, I'm on the market for a new helmet. I'm considering the Bauer Reakt, IMS 11/9.0, the Warrior Krown LTE (kind of looks like it has mostly EPP foams like the S19 though), or waiting for the Bauer Reakt 100. Suggestions/opinions? Greatly appreciated. Thanks guys

    Warrior Dynasty (Original)

    Stick: Warrior Dynasty Flex: 85 Curve: Kopitar Player: 5'10, 145 lbs, 3-4 times a week (2-3 games, 1 practice) Playing Style: Playmaking forward with a knack for scoring in in-tight areas, I rely on a quick release and accuracy. Shaft/Flex: The shaft had a great feel in my hands, as the shape wasn't too boxy, nor too round. The little "niches" helped with the grip somewhat, but took a while to get used to. It did seem a tad stiffer than 85 flex, but my shots were pretty good with this stick. 7/10 Blade/Puck Feel: This blade was one of the best things (at least in my opinion) about this stick. I could feel the puck on the blade, and it wasn't very "pingy" like many of the new OPS's on the market. In addition, catching passes was golden as the puck seemed to just stick on the blade. The only complaint I have is about the durability, as after about 3 weeks a crack appeared on the heel of the stick. Researched, and it was a well-known problem. 9/10 Weight/Balance: This is a pretty light stick, a tad blade heavy and definitely not in the class of the APX or the new AX1, but nontheless it was not too heavy and not too light. 9/10 Shooting:.Shooting was great. The mid-kick (in my opinion) suited my style better than the Widow's low-kick (at PHL, I kept going BD with the Dynasty, and Bar-north with the Widow - it's really just a matter of getting used to the kickpoint though). Clappers and snappers were great, and my wristers had a few extra MPH on them. 9/10 Durability: This is perhaps the only downfall of the stick. I noticed at the hosel (the part where the shaft and blade are fused) a lot of composite was splintering, and of course the blade cracked after week 3. That being said, I was still able to play with it despite all these nicks and bruises. 7/10 Overall: One of the better sticks I've owned over the past years. I do have to say, I liked the 75s and the s19 a bit better (most likely due to the eliptical taper), however I despised the durability on each of those sticks. The Dynasty was a solid jack-of-all trades stick. I did also notice my backhand sauce was a lot better than I remembered it to be.. Very stick, well worth the $99 sale price I got it for! 8.5/10
  8. I currently play with a 81 flex (75 flex cut 2") Reebok 8K 2-piece with a P34 (Hamrlik) curve. I love the stick but I can't find the shaft, blade or 1-piece stick anymore and I'm not about to spend $250 on the modern Reebok equivalent in the 11K. Now I'm looking for something else. I've been eying the Warrior Diablo stick and have some questions if someone could weigh in. First, I was looking at the 75 flex. It's a 63" shaft with the 75 flex rating being at the 60" mark from what I've read here. Any idea on how much flex it would be after cutting down to 55", 5 inches beyond the 75 flex mark? Will it be super stiff or will it not change much since it's low kickpoint? My Reebok cut to the 81 flex mark is about as stiff as I'd want to go. I could even go softer by about 5 points if need be but not more than that. Second, if the flex would increase too much should I look at a 70 flex intermediate Diablo? That's 60" with the 3" addition so what would the flex at 55" be roughly?. Does anyone know if the shaft dimensions or blade length are any smaller? Third, as far as curves go, I have liked how my P34 blade is very neutral and mellow but I want a bit of a deeper curve. A closed face is a must but past that I'm not sure I have a big preference to the curve type or depth. Any opinions on if I should go with the Kovy and it's uniform curve or try out the Gionta with a bit of a toe curve? Thanks in advance.
  9. Senior Large Warrior Dynasty AX1 Elbow pads. NEW without tags. I've never owned pro stock elbows, but from what I've read the AX1s fit similar to Jofa Pro elbows, but have a more comfortable strapping system and a nicer antibacterial liner. I picked them up from another member and they're very nice pads, but I just prefer the fit of my 2012 Projekts. SOLD for $75 shipped . Here are a few comments from this forum: Mission Axiom T8 Inline Pants - Size Large. NEW with tags. The sizing chart on one of the tags suggests that they're a good fit for someone 5'9"-6'1" with a 36"-38" waist - the adjustable belt system would likely allow someone outside of that waist range to wear them as well. I'm 6'2" with about a 37" waist and they fit me, but are quite roomy - they could easily be expanded to fit a 40"+ waist. They have a loose fit. I'm only selling them because I prefer the more anatomical fit of my old Valken Pro pants and the Bauer XR5 pants I recently received to ref roller hockey with. SOLD for $41 + shipping on eBay. I switched to Edge style socks some time ago and no longer use Knit socks, but have a few pairs that are either new or in very good condition that are available if anyone is interested. I have two pairs of Men's Large solid San Jose teal socks that are in very good condition and were only worn a few times. They have a few small holes/runs, but nothing major. Model-Line Hockey Socks. Made in Canada. 65% Polyester and 35% Cotton. $5/pair + shipping or local pickup. 1 Pair of White socks with a blue and white stripe. Montreal Canadiens away colours. Men's XL. Brand NEW with tags. Kobe Socks. Made in Canada. 65% Polyester and 35% Cotton. $10+shipping or local pickup.
  10. http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php?/files/file/152-2013-warrior-hockey-catalogue/ Sticks - New for 2013 is the updated Dynasty line – continuing with the AxySym technology. The Dynasty AX1 has been upgraded in several areas; the biggest changes are on the bottom half of the stick. Starting from the fuse point (HiFused), the lower part of the shaft has been reinforced to prevent twisting, and the blade is the same as what was debuted on the Covert DT1. The matte clear shaft has their Velvet finish, and the SlickGrip (which has a textured feel on one side of the shaft) is the Grip version. AX2 shares the same blade however doesn’t have the shaft reinforcement and the fuse point is lower. While the AxySym tech goes down to the lowest model, from the AX3 and down, other than weight, you’ll lose one of the spars in the blade. Covert line carries over for 2013. The goal sticks carry over for 2013, however, there is a new Swagger stick – which is the TF2. Biggest difference between them is that the regular Swagger has a reinforced heel and comes in more colorways. Helmets – unchanged Protective – This is where Warrior went out and made things a little more simple in terms of lines; there will only be one line of protective going forward. Going with their cap technology, which consists of multiple layers of materials to disperse impact and reduce weight, they’ve also changed the liner; they are going with Polygiene, which has been used in other sports equipment to reduce odor and moisture management. The liner’s color is yellow (that is Dynasty’s color, Covert is blue.) The elbow pads are very impressive – if you are one of those guys like me who won’t get rid of their Jofas, this surely makes it tempting to. The shin pads are a bit leaner than previous Warrior shin pads as well, and fit very well. There will be three models of protective – Dynasty AX1/AX2/AX3, and what’s even better is the price points they are placed at. Also, one of the biggest stories they want to tell this year is fit – Warrior is introducing an intermediate sizing chart – on shoulder pads, they will go Jr S/M, L/XL, Int S/M, Int L/XL, then Sr S-XL. On the shins, they will have an Int 14” and 15” which will be less bulky than their Sr counterparts (although there will be a Sr 15”) Gloves – Keeping with the line trimming, the Franchise-style gloves remain unchanged, however, the Luxe and Projekt lines have been scrapped. The Covert glove will be a mash-up of those two models; a tapered fit, with the SmartPalm+ palm that was featured on the Projekt glove, and the Bone System padding that was on the Luxe. Other new features include the vented outer, which is mesh-like to the touch. The liner will be their Chillwave, however, will have Polygiene, and is blue. Very good feel out of the box. Pants – this category has been simplified as well; only one family of pants in the Covert, which is essentially an tweaked Projekt pant - forward-canted, floating waist pad with a dual belt system (you pull down and it tightens, doesn’t go around your waist.) Chillwave/Polygiene liner. Projekt girdle and Bonafide pants carry over from 2012 to round out the line.

    Warrior Covert DT1

    Background: Thanks to my widow breaking I now am a proud owner of a DT1. RH W88 Zetterberg 85 flex cut down to 55-54" Recent sticks used: APX, Widow, DT1 Body Type: 5' 7" 250lbs Disclaimer: Im going to do a little copy and pasting from the widow review because there is A LOT similar here Blade: Great feel but not as good as the widow, just a tad bit less feel but still great overall. coming off of the apx especially with playing with a lighter roller puck this sticks feel is so good! I thought i had good feeling before but with this i know where the puck is on the blade. its stiffer than the widow but its not pingy or anything. and with my trusty curve i was able to put the puck where i needed it. half point off for having the clear coat on the blade though. tape has a hard time sticking to it so i hit it quick with a light coat of the krylon non skid spray and now its perfect. also another half point off because for roller i want that perfect feel. 9.0/10 Shaft/Flex: Flex feel compared to the 87 APX cut to the same length felt whippy, compared to the widow its a tad bit stiffer after cutting it down. As a big guy i needed a tiny bit of shooting to square up but after a quick skate i loved it! real low kick and it let me take shots with less effort than the apx. the apx wanted someone to really rip into it, the DT1 does not. the shaft has a bit more shoulder than the APX and a tiny bit more than the widow which i also thought would be bad but im liking that too. The shoulders fit my palms better than say the apx and i get a better grip that way also the stick doesnt roll in my hands when shooting like the apx. but its not too big like the easton RS sticks where i cant wrap my hands around it right. The flex really stiffens up when cut short too but still loads easy. 10/10 Stickhandling/receiving passes: Im not a big stick handler but i can do it a little easier thanks to the feel of the blade. My passing used to be good, legitimately good, but now they are superb! touch passes get exactly where they need to be with just the right umph. 9.5/10 Shooting: Hard, fast, and on target. I couldnt be happier. i took a couple of shots against the board and my teammates turned around to look at what just slammed against the boards to see me shooting there. thats a good sign. on one of my missed shot that hit the boards i heard the opposite goalie mumble "wow, glad that didnt hit me" as i rolled by. though the trick here is to let the stick do the work. really, just let it. when i try to power shots in i usually get a stinker and the puck just trickles forward. as for slappers this is one of the few sticks i can take a good velocity shot with, as in when i hit the glass i got that glass shattering, whip cracking sound that you hear come from NHL shots. My aim is still off but i rarely take a slapshot so im not going to worry. With one timers are nice and have a good snap. I thought the widow had a good release but this thing snaps to it. there were a couple of shots i took in traffic that i thought had no chance but i got them off and with a good velocity. 10/10 Weight and balance: as light as a top tier stick can be. balance is perfect for me, even after cutting. 10/10 Durability: Whatever Warrior did to up the fortitude in these sticks worked. Only a couple games in and where my Widow and even the apx would be chipped already this stick looks like new. 10/10 Intangibles: The diamond texture (dont want to call it a grip bc its on both the grip and non grip versions) is great, you dont notice it and it doesnt restrict you at all when you need it but it definitely gave me a little more of a grip when needed it and filled my hand nicely. I didnt think i would like this but its nice. The clear coating is ok on the shaft but ton the blade im nto a fan, i wish more people had that sandpaper grip texture on the blade like bauer and easton. Like I said, nothing a quick thin coat of the krylon non-skid couldnt take care of. 8/10 Conclusion: I really didnt think it could get better than the widow but its durability made me look elsewhere. Before buying a different stick the DT1 came into the mail just before my game and i couldnt be happier. Though I rather have the better feel of the widows blade over the extra stiffness, I do realize this is for the durability of the stick overall. I much rather have a stick thats a tiny bit less sensitive than have one that breaks the 4th game in. Hands down the best stick I have ever used! 66.5/70 = 9.5/10 A real winner here guys and I honestly can't wait to see what the dt1lt/st sticks bring.

    Warrior Covert DT1

    2012 Warrior DT1 Personal Specs 6'1" 220lbs RW Jr. and College Experience Timeframe: 40-50 hours Aesthetics: Warrior has toned down the overall graphics and 'flashiness' seen on many previous models. The black and white color scheme is subtle and quite conservative. 10/10 Weight/balance: The DT1, like many other sticks in this price range, is extremely light. With their 'True 1' technology they've figured out a way to create an ideal balance not found in many of the fused OPS's. Given how light the stick is, if it was blade heavy you'd know instantly. 10/10 Performance: This is where I've seen the most improvement vs the Widow. With the flex point lower on the stick my shots seems to load and release far quicker and easier than with older Warrior models. I'm finding that even with a stiff flex my snap shots are crisp and clean. Slap shots are solid as always. True to Warrior's claims, the stick flexes like a bow, at the hands and bottom. It takes a few shots/passes to get used to, but once you figure out how to take advantage of this the stick really shines. 9/10 Puck handling: If there was one complaint I have with this stick it's with the 'pop' or 'crispy' nature of the blade. At times firm passes are difficult to control because they seem to bounce off the blade. I've adjusted and have found this problem easy to overcome. The 'out of box' first time experience can be frustrating initially if you're not prepared. 7/10 Durability: Durability has been typical of a Warrior. I'm no longer worried each time a take a one-timer that my stick is going to snap. Both my Easton RS's snapped on one-timers after a few games. I've never been easy on sticks given my size and style of game, however the DT1 has stood strong. The blade hasn't split or fade, and thus far there are no cracks. In my opinion one of the most important aspects of a stick that is expected to hold up is it's ability to maintain it's proper flex. I've found over and over that my sticks that last more than three months lose their flex and become to whippy. (My friends know that too and love my hand-me-downs). Thus far I haven't felt the stick go soft. The flex has stayed consistent which is a huge plus. The paint on the graphics, like all sticks, chips and flakes after a few games, but in my opinion that is to be expected. 9/10 Conclusion: Overall I'm very excited about the DT1. Warrior is so confident we the consumers will love it they've offered the 30 day unconditional guarantee If you don't like it, you can return it. I figured that if a company is willing to invest this much into their brand something great must be going on. It was a risk I was willing to take and I've been a very happy customer. Take note of one item, the stick comes 63", one to two inches longer than most sticks. As a taller player I was happy about this, however pay attention to your preferred flex if you'll be cutting the stick down more than normal. Overall Score: 9/10

    2013 Warrior Goal Catalogue

    http://www.modsquadhockey.com/forums/index.php?/files/file/153-2013-warrior-goal-catalogue/ Chest/Arm - in one of the biggest advances in this category in quite some time, Warrior introduces the Ritual Pro C/A; this thing is nuts. On the arms, there is a hard plastic outer, which is called Shockshield; the purpose of it is to disperse puck impact in the arms as well as deflect potential rebounds, while increasing protection. Staying on the arms, the Axyflex is a hinged system which increases range of motion; however, the padding around it works in conjunction; the pad on the front bends with the arm. So when the arm's flexed, the elbow cap expands, the bicep cap tilts forward and the arm floater slides forward as well. When straight, all pads stay straight as well. The chest height is also adjustable - it can be brought up or down. The rest of the straps can be manipulated to get your optimal fit. Now, I have never played goal in my life, but I've put on a chest/arm unit before. The range of motion you get from this is absolutely incredible. The Shockshield, Axyflex and adjustable straps are only available on the Ritual Pro. The adjustable chest feature does carry down to the Ritual. Pants - new pan in the Ritual; three new features - the padding on the front of the pad is flexible, so when a goalie drops down, the plates overlap to increase range of motion as well as making sure there aren't any gaps in protection. Also, the edge of the pant on the outer side in front is notched to eliminate interference from the actual pad. Also, the belt system can be adjusted to provide more of a forward cant; there are two loops that the belt can be fed through to achieve this. These features are on both the Ritual Pro and regular Ritual. Everything else carries over from last year, but the jocks have the Shockshield tech from the C/A in the cup.
  14. Background: 6’2”, north of 200lbs Adult Recreational player (both ice and roller) Product: 2010 Warrior Projekt Elbow Pads (white) – Senior Medium Previous Pads: Mission Sub Zero, Bauer One90, Nike V14 (all Senior Large) Current Pads: 2012 Projekts (blue and grey) – Senior Large Timeframe: Late 2010 – Late Spring 2012 Fit These pads fit larger than most. I’m a large in most elbow pads, but had to use medium with these as the large slid right off my arm while done up if I gave it a good pull in the store. These are the most comfortable elbow pads I’ve ever used – the middle strap is made of a neoprene like material and is very comfortable. The bicep pad flares out and I also found this to be very comfortable. The pad feels secure when you first put it on and it’s dry and for the most part it does stay in place during gameplay, however; a hold or hook can dislodge them once they’re wet with sweat. 8.5/10 Mobility These pads are extremely mobile. You really feel like you’re wearing nothing and have no restrictions at all. 10/10 Protection I found the protection on these to be lacking when it came to taking a hard fall on the elbow. I took one and was left with a large bruise and a tender elbow. Nothing was broken and I could still play on, but I thought the elbow protection should’ve been better for a high end pad. Slash and bicep protection were reasonable, but the elbow should be a priority when it comes to elbow pads. 6/10 Weight Very lightweight for a high end pad. The use of zote foam helped keep the weight down while still providing some level of protection. They aren't quite as light as some newer pads like the CCM U+ CL. 9/10 Durability The stitching was weak on the middle strap and started to come loose after only a few months of use. I had them reinforced and they held up, but that really shouldn’t have been necessary. After a while some small holes did develop on one of the middle straps and the top elastic bicep straps started to stretch out. Having said that, I only stopped using them because of the elbow protection issue – they were still in useable condition when I moved on to the 2012 Projekts. 6.5/10 Intangibles The white colour tended to easily get stained and I once washed them with something black (my mistake) and they got dyed grey (main part) and brown (velcro). Conclusion They’re mobile, comfortable and light pads, but they definitely aren’t the most protective pads out there and the stitching could’ve been better. If you want to sacrifice protection for mobility and grab these on closeout, I’d recommend picking up a size smaller than you’d normally buy in other pads. I think you’d be better off spending a bit more on the 2012 Projekts as the issues I had with these pads have been addressed. 7.5/10
  15. Background: 6’2”, north of 200lbs Adult Recreational player (both ice and roller) Product: 2012 Warrior Projekt Elbow Pads (blue and grey) – Senior Large Previous Pads: Mission Sub Zero, Bauer One90, Nike V14 (all Senior Large), and 2010 Warrior Projekt (white, Senior Medium) Timeframe: Late Spring 2012 - Present Fit Unlike the 2010 Projekts, the 2012 Projekts fit true to size and I was able to go from medium back to my usual large. The elbow slot is both narrower and deeper compared to the 2010 Projekts and this locks your arm in better. They’re very comfortable and lock your arm in very well. The forearm protection does feel a little bulky when you first put them on, but you don’t notice this once you’re playing. The bicep guard opens up to allow the shoulder pad to pad to slide in if so desired. This is carried over from the 2010 model and I think this is a good thing. I find the bicep pad feels more comfortable this way even when you aren’t wearing shoulder pads. 9.5/10 Mobility These pads don’t feel quite as mobile as the 2010 version when you first put them on, but in game situations they’re very mobile. They definitely feel mobile in comparison to all the other top end 2012 pads. There is a little slot cut out at the bottom of the elbow that helps with mobility. The bicep guards are also segmented like they were on the 2012 version, but are beefed up. 10/10 Protection These are much more protective than the 2010 version. The elbow caps are deeper, harder and more protective. The forearm protection is also beefed up. I have taken a hard fall in these and was no worse for wear. 9/10 Weight A very lightweight pad. Slightly heavier than the CCM CL U+ pad, but not much (a medium Projekt is 31g heavier than a medium CCM CL U+ if the measurements on IW are accurate) and are lighter than most high end pads. 9.5/10 Durability After a few months of use the pads still look like new and none of the stitches have come loose (I had a problem with the stitches on the middle strap of the 2010 version). The top elastic pad will likely stretch out at some point, but so far it's still in great shape. Edit 16/07/2013: After a year of use the top elastic has stretched out, but the middle and bottom straps are still holding up well and lock my elbow in pace. The bicep guard is looser with the top strap stretched out, but this really doesn't impact me when I'm playing. I also noticed that the splits in the plastic/rubber material before the forearm have enlarged - especially on the left pad which is on my top arm (I shoot right). They're still holding together, but the splits are significantly larger than on a new pad and are approaching the edge on the left elbow pad. Right now the inner material seems to be preventing it from completely splitting, but it is an area of concern. They're still very functional after a year of using them for both ice and roller hockey several times a week though. 9.5/10 8/10 Intangibles The pads are grey and blue instead of white so stains and dirt don’t easily show up on them. The elbow portion is a little pointy and is quite deep so they aren’t as low profile as the 2010 version. Conclusion These are mobile, comfortable, light, protective and stay in place, but the top elastic strap could've been thicker or made from the same neoprene like material as the middle strap and the splits before the forearm get bigger with use (although this has not affected the fuction so far). I prefer the grey and blue colour to white of the original Projekts. These are the best high end elbow pads I’ve ever owned and I highly recommend them. 9.5/10
  16. Just some background: Currently playing in a beer league once per week on. Played high school hockey, for provincial teams, as well AAA yearly when growing up. Current size: 6'0"/167lbs Shin Guard Size: 14" (February 2012-Present) Fit: Fit is tough on to judge. These take awhile to get use to. The padding is a little larger than some of the other guards out there, which for me was different than something that I was wearing. They are snug fitting because of all this padding. I don't have the largest legs in the world and I get the velcro less than halfway around when strapping them on. The form does a great job at shaping your leg though after months of usage though and now I really enjoy the fit. 8/10 Protection: With the huge wrap around in the back and the large amount of padding, these are quite possibly some of the best when it comes to protection. Block shots once in while and have never felt anything. My favorite part is the wrap around though. They included padding on the wrap around itself, which is a first for me, but I really enjoy it. Rather it be a puck, stick, or even a skate, I never feel like anything major is going to happen if I take something to the back of the leg. 10/10 Weight: Not the lightest, not the heaviest. For the amount of padding though, they are far from heavy when you consider just how much are to these. 9/10 Durability: Been using these since February last year and besides the paint/stickers starting to wear off, these things look brand new. The liner soaks up the sweat, but never starts to look dirty. I also tend to have guards start to fray where it meets the skate/ankle area, but not the case with these yet, so will keep an eye on that. 9/10 Intangibles: Nothing I hate more than having hot legs on the ice. These things have great ventilation. While skating I get the air coming through the ventilation holes in the from of the guard. Just a nice added touch. 8/10 Conclusion: Overall, I have no complaints about these thus far. Just a great all around pad for players of all levels. I've had Warrior sticks and pants in the past, which is why I wanted to try out another piece of their protective line and I must say, I will probably continue to look at their products in the future. 9/10
