The best type of senior shin guards for hockey are whichever ones offer the best fit and the most protection for your budget. If you’re playing in a beginner adult rec league, you won’t need all the bells and whistles in guards like the pro-level CCM Tacks AS-V Pro or Bauer Vapor Hyperlite. You can likely get by with a great pair of Warrior Alpha LX 30 or TRUE AX5 shin pads.
Your senior hockey shin guards need to be long enough to protect your lower leg from the ankle to the middle of your kneecap. Base the length of your senior hockey shin guards on how you wear them: over the tongue of the skate, or under. If you wear them over the tongue, you need longer shin guards to account for the extra space the gear requires to accommodate the tongue. We offer specific shin guard measuring instructions in the fitting guide, so make sure you refer to it before you buy.
Senior hockey shin guards range from $65–$2oo, increasing in price as more cutting-edge tech and elite performance designs are introduced.
