Shop Pure Hockey to find the protective hockey equipment every player needs. It’s no secret that hockey is a physical sport, so wearing the appropriate safety gear is critical. We carry Bauer, CCM, and other trusted brands so you can be confident your shoulder pads, helmet, and girdle can handle the action when it's time to hit the ice. Consult our hockey equipment and fitting guides and make sure your gear is up to the task.
Your helmet is the most important piece of hockey equipment you’ll wear. Choosing the appropriate helmet and neck guard is essential for reducing the risk of concussions, brain trauma, and other life-threatening injuries. Select a securely fitting hockey helmet and shield your head from high sticks and flying pucks, and then add a neck guard for extra protection in this vulnerable area.
Stock your hockey bag with durable shoulder pads and elbow pads designed to take a beating. Hockey shoulder pads should fit snug over your shoulders, torso, and collarbone but without restricting movement. Flexible elbow pads protect this sensitive joint so you can check your opponent as needed and take the shot when your window opens. For added peace of mind, slip into a padded hockey shirt prior to pulling on your bulkier equipment.
When it comes to your legs, layers matter. Cups and supporters are your first line of defense below your base layer. Choose between roomier hockey pants and form-fitting girdles to achieve the most comfort and the right protection for your thighs. If you opt for a supportive girdle, skip the bulk of adding full hockey pants over them and instead slide on a loose-fitting hockey pant shell. Complete your lower-body hockey gear with shin guards; a proper fit is essential so that the guards cradle your knees in the donut and protect the lower legs from injuries via the built-in performance padding.
Pure Hockey carries dependable protective equipment for your extremities. Enjoy the superior grip and comfort of a properly fitted pair of hockey gloves. Round out your kit with hockey wrist guards and reinforce your joint against sprains and strains.

How often you replace your hockey equipment depends on how frequently you use it. While helmets come with a specific expiration date, it’s up to the player to determine how often to replace other gear. A good rule of thumb for the active hockey player is to replace gear every couple of years or once you can observe or feel wear and tear in critical areas of the gear.
Hockey pads should fit snug but without restricting movement. Check our hockey equipment and fitting guides for detailed sizing information.
The average cost of hockey protective gear for young players sits between $40 and $140. The casual or intermediate hockey player can expect to spend roughly $80–$200 per item. Senior players who require top-quality protective equipment will see prices ranging from $120 to $280 depending on the gear.
