  1. Yeah same deal with the gaiter I use. The Google is your friend - www.mission.com. It's like the first thing that pops up when you search for it.
  2. there are color tabs to the right of the page. I'm guessing they're custom colors.
  3. I found Bauers LS5 offered more glide on the same hollow than STEP ST, LS3, LS4 or Tydan. I had thought maybe it was just me until a teammate had the same experience after switching. At one point I had standard LS3 and DLC coated LS3. The coated version held it's edge a little longer and stood up to minor trama better than the standard LS3. I'd say less burring after sharpening too.
  4. I finally got to try out the gaiter I mentioned earlier. The fit was pretty good, no interference or adjustments to the helmet needed. The ear loops held it in place but made it tough to pull down to drink. Breathing wise, it's about what you would expect. The only complaint, it doesn't have a moldable nose piece so it does mess with your vision a little. https://www.amazon.com/Seamless-Headwear-Protection-Balaclava-Outdoors/dp/B088D68DYH/ref=pd_ybh_a_24?_encoding=UTF8&refRID=JFVF906RNJWWP7K9GKV4&th=1&psc=1 Overall not a bad option and fairly inexpensive compared to the alternatives.
  5. I recently purchased one of those neck gators with the ear loops for the gym. It has some potential for hockey. My only real concern is what happens when it gets wet. Has anyone tried the CCM mask on a Bauer titanium cage? How's the fit?
  6. I don't consider the effectiveness of a piece of protective equipment off topic. Given what these products are protecting you from, the effectiveness should be the ONLY thing being talked about. But hey, wag away
  7. I prefer a cynical approach because when I am wrong, which is often, it's good news. Yeah, I added the last line after posting. I wanted to make sure I wasn't lumped into that group of crazies. There is no shortage of them.
  8. Were these products tested and certified by the FDA or CDC to prevent or even lower the risk of contracting or spreading Covid-19? If no, it's a cash grab. Same goes for the all fancy masks we wear on a daily basis, myself included. Once you enter the rink common sense is tossed aside. Think about it, if people were serious about preventing the spread there would be no need for splash guards on hockey helmets. Don't confuse me with an anti-masker or one of those covid is hoax whack jobs.
  9. @th6252You should be able to up-size the holders afterwards. Most brands do it on EE widths. I had 246's on my vapors, which are now converted to inline. If I ever switch them back, it will be to 254.
  10. I looked into modifying my shoulders with some thigh pads from an old pair of inline shorts. I didn't think it was worth it. The padding moved around too much. I ended up with a padded shirt. CCM has a base layer for refs with chest, rid & arm pads. I'm gonna give that a shot.
  11. Sounds like his current skates may have been a little tight or poorly fitted and his new skates are too big. Could be one of those who add length to compensate for lack of width.
  12. I've banged up my ribs a few times recently. I'm thinking either padded shirt, or add padding to my shoulder pads to fill in the gaps. Any recommendations one way or the other?
  13. With the chance to hoist, does 91 dress again tonight?
