The Bauer Vapor X800 hockey gloves are a great value point in Bauer's taper fit glove line. Double density foams with the aid of PE inserts take the brunt of the impact responsibilities, and do an excellent job of deflecting most impacts. The shell of the Vapor X800 hockey glove is a durable combo of synthetic leather and cable mesh, which will protect them against tearing or getting cut with a skate blade much better than standard nylon. The Vapor X800 features an upgraded patented two-piece thumb lock that enables much easier movement within the thumb of the glove. Black Nash with a reinforced Digital Nash overlay compose the palm of the glove, and extend its life without compromising feel. Finally, Bauer's familiar Thermo Max liner has a proven track record to aid moisture and heat management.
