Comments: They are very comfortable with stretchy sides on the chest protector. Stomach pad a little small though...I am a defenceman and take pucks to the gut way too often. The shoulder pads are adjustable...all in all, I am very pleased. i would recommend them to a friend. In fact, I recommended a friend to this website for some gear! 

Update - I ran into my stick that was stuck under the net.  Just about speared myself.  I could feel the stick go under my ribs about 4-5" Hurt like crazy.  Thought I was going to die.  Pulled up my shirt expecting to see stick in my lung area.  Skin wasn't even broken.  Had CT scan on organs and ribs - all okay.  Sore like crazy for 6 weeks due to muscle injury, but nothing serious.  I think these things saved my life to be honest.  They wrap around well on the sides and are stretchy. I hit on the lower left side... which is where I hit the top of my stick, which broke - 100 flex - in half.  Was a freak injury/accident, but I credit this chest protector with my life.  The shoulder pads are a little awkward at first, but after 10 seconds you are used to them.  You won't be disappointed with these - I know I won't.

Tapered Fit

  • The Bauer Vapor 1X Hockey Shoulder Pads are the flagship shoulder pads in the Vapor series and feature the best tech used in the Vapor line thus far. Using Aerolite™ foam. an ultra lightweight high density foam, as the base layer, the shoulder pads wrap right around the player for comfortable, lightweight protection that extends around the side for kidney protection.

  • The Bauer Vapor X900 Hockey Shoulder Pads share a lot of similarities with last year's flagship APX2 shoulder pads including the use of the advanced Aerolite™. Aerolite foam technology is 30% lighter than other high density foams with the same amount of protection, so the Bauer X900 shoulder pads are designed with lightweight protection as a focus. 

  • The Bauer Vapor X800 Hockey Shoulder Pads provides a step up in protection for players looking for the intermediate level of play. The segmented medium density foam base layer provides a comfortable wrap around the body and offering extended protection along the side and kidney area.

  • The Bauer Vapor X700 Shoulder Pads are the entry level pads in the 2016 Vapor line. Their lightweight design features medium density foams reinforced by plastic inserts in the sternum, spine, bicep and collarbone area for protection in the areas where you need it.
