Hockey Gloves come in three styles of fits; Traditional, Contoured and Tapered. Traditional Hockey Gloves feature a classic, relaxed fit in fingers, backhand and cuff. Contoured Hockey Gloves are the opposite of Traditional; they have a snug fit in the fingers, backhand and cuff. Tapered Hockey Gloves are a hybrid between Traditional and Contoured; the fingers and backhand have a snug fit that opens up to a relaxed fit in the cuff. As the price increases (the price points become more advanced), hockey gloves begin to utilize higher density foams that offer better, lightweight protection especially when plastic inserts are used as well.
