Our picks for the best Bauer hockey gloves of 2022 highlight the company’s continued innovations in protective equipment technology. Finding the right hockey gloves for your game can be challenging, especially with so many options in fit, protective features, and price. Bauer, a tried-and-true brand many NHL players look to for their own hockey gear, is known for its research and advanced technology in protective gear for players at all levels. Whether you prefer an anatomical, tapered, or traditional fit, Bauer makes a glove for you.
If you want a classic four-roll style for your hockey glove but a closer, more modern feel, look at the Bauer Pro Series. Created to replace Bauer’s top-end Nexus glove for senior and intermediate levels, the Pro Series offers a narrower fit and rounded side. The junior Pro Series model feels closer to Bauer’s N2900 glove. All Pro Series gloves provide excellent protection and comfort.
Dual density EPP foam with poly inserts blocks the impacts that occur throughout a game. Bauer constructed the glove’s shell from Pro Lite Tex with a polyurethane overlay, making this glove extremely lightweight without sacrificing protection.
The Ivory Pro palm, Hypersense finger liner, and Thermomax backhand pad deliver game-ready comfort right out of the box. If you loved the Nexus glove and you’re looking for a replacement with advanced technologies, optimal comfort, and superior protection, the Pro Series glove is a winning choice.

Bauer Supreme Ultrasonic hockey gloves offer elite-level protection in an anatomical fit. Snug throughout the fingers and backhand but roomier around the cuff, the Supreme Ultrasonic provides a great feel while stick handling and improves overall range of motion.
Although the Supreme Ultrasonic glove retains the fit of Bauer’s 2S Pro, the triple density foam with Poron XRD in the backhand is a key upgrade. This breakthrough tech material provides the player extreme impact protection against blocked shots and slashes, while the all-new AMP cuff covers the wrist without sacrificing mobility.
Bauer uses a three-piece finger construction to enhance stick feel, mobility, and puck control. The patented three-piece flex-lock thumb design guards against hyperextension during contact, preventing a common and painful injury. For extra durability, Bauer included the Max Connekt Palm in the Ultrasonic, reinforcing this high-wear area. Inside the glove, a Thermo Core liner wicks away moisture, keeping your gloves dry and preventing odor. Bauer Supreme Ultrasonic hockey gloves are available at Pure Hockey for seniors at $199.99, intermediate at $189.99, and for junior players at $169.99.

Bauer revised their signature Vapor fit into the Vapor 2X Pro, the most comfortable gloves the company has ever produced. By fine-tuning some important Vapor features, Bauer developed an elite-level protection package in a tapered fit.
An all-new ShockLite foam on the backhand provides exceptional slash and shot block protection without adding any extra weight. The fingers boast triple-density foam via HyperLite HD Foam, a closed-cell material that doesn't absorb water. There are no plastic inserts needed on the backhand or fingers, which reduces the featherlight 2X Pro’s weight to only 255 grams (about half a pound).
The 2X Pro has an ultra-sensitive Connekt+ palm, Hyper Sense Finger liners, and a flex cuff to deliver exceptional stick connection and increased range of motion. A Thermo Core liner provides additional soft cushioning while managing sweat, moisture, and odor throughout the game. The Vapor 2X Pro hockey gloves are available at Pure Hockey for seniors at $199.99 and for junior players at $159.99.
