Your shin pads are one of the most important pieces of equipment you wear. While they don't have to be high tech, they do need to keep you safe. The Vapor X800 hockey shin guards from Bauer do just that. These shin guards feature an injected knee cap, and a thermoformed shin cap that is extremely durable. The Vapor X800 features MD foam that takes the lead in protection, located in the thigh and calf protectors with PE inserts amplifying the protection in the calf. The liner is made of hydrophobic mesh, which will help to mitigate how much moisture saturates your pads. Finally, a simple two-strap system makes getting dressed a breeze, and keeps your pads in place.
