Shin pads take a beating! They're the thankless heroes of hockey gear, and it's about time they got some love. Thankfully, Bauer has heard the call and seriously upgraded their Vapor 1X hockey shin guards. Replacing the majority of the once plastic shell with Curv composite technology, these pads are feather light and much more protective. The knee cap is an injected molded piece and features ample foam inserts before tapering down into the composite powered shin guard. The calf wrap features familiar AEROLITE Technology that also makes its way up into the thigh protector. AEROLITE is used to ensure the components are plenty protective without adding excess weight. Finally, the liner is powered by 37.5 fabric amplified by Bauer's new Tech Mesh process where a system of miniature supports separate the layers of fabric creating a channel for airflow to move through and dissipate the moisture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pair of shin guards If you wear your shin guards on the outside of your tongues, these are perfect. Great fit, very protective & surprisingly lightweight. The little piece on the bottom allows you to flex forward & the guard stays planted against your leg

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great comfort and protection. I bought these a year ago and only now the straps are showing some wear and tear. Although even with that, they still perform just as well as when I got them. The free flex tongue is really good and doesn’t hurt your feet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fit great, but already wearing out Just a beer league bender, but after having fluid removed from my knee cap after blocking a shot with my last pair of shin guards that were worn out, I decided to buy top end shin guards to replace them. I'm surprised that these are already wearing out after about a year of use (skating 1-2 times a week). The liner over the padding on the inside is worn through and the actual padding is exposed. At this price point they should have been more durable. If I were still playing competitively, aggressively skating 4-5 times a week these wouldn't have lasted half a season. They fit really well. They flex/move with your leg and knee and do not restrict my movement at all. I'm really picky about how equipment feels...and these fit like a pair of socks. No movement (unwanted) and no restrictions. The protection in the knee area takes a little to get used to because at first it feels inadequate, but after take some slashes/shots and a few falls...the protection was there!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great High End Pants Picked these up on sale and saved a bundle on these top of the line pads. These are among the lightest shin pads I've ever owned and are as protective as some of the competitors high end much bulkier offerings. I play forward and wanted a shin pad that gave me the same protection but with less weight and bulk and the Vapor line fit the definition perfectly. The two strap system fits the shin pads snugly to your leg and the extra flex piece at the bottom of the pad gives you excellent range of movement for a better skate stride. ( I wear my shin pads over the tongue of my skate.) The tapered design felt weird at first but is anatomically correct yet still provides more than enough lower leg protection. Love the 37.5 liner that soaks up sweat and cools your legs and provides an extra layer of protection. Didn't think these felt protective enough at first but after taking some nasty slashes and hard slappers they proved they where more than capable. I highly recommend the Vapor line of protective if your looking for light, streamlined, and high end protective equipment.
