Comments: Bauer Elite C/A 2011 Version: Senior Large. I pretty much needed all new equipment so I couldn't
splurge on any one item, so pretty much Bauer Rx6/low end stuff across the board. Money was the driving factor here. The "Bauer
Performance" just didn't have the protection I needed.
MOBILITY: Flexible out of the box..no resistance to any movements. The arm pads stay in position, facing front/shooter. My old
ones the arms would twist exposing the inner arm.
FIT: Large fit me perfect, I am 5'11" 1/2. I did raise the belly pads a bit as they sat down into my pads a too low.
STYLING: I like the way it looks, nice in the jersey, no bulky areas that look out of proportion. I wish it didn't have any of the
white...after 8-9months of 1-2 times a week use, it is starting to show stains. I will wash it the see how it looks.
ADJUSTABILITY: Straps up and down the arms for snugness and a the back strap can adjust at both sides. One problem here is the
buckles on the back strap do not have a tight grip, so they slip. I even lost one as it must have fallen off the strap while
undressing. Even with the extra strap loop, it didn't stay. Needs a tighter extra strap loop or maybe it was routed backwards out of
the box. I have just taped one end permanently and taped the other buckle in place. Not real issue, just slightly annoying that is
happened to a new piece of equipment. I really like the wrist strap. Easy to remove to get dressed, and then tighted a bit when
going on the ice. This strap has a "T" piece of rubber at the end to keep it from slipping out of the loop, so it is always ready to be
tightened. Very nice touch. One of has recently broken off though.
You can adjust where the back panel meets the front on top of the shoulders, if it is too short or too long. I left as it was
PROTECTION: NO BRUISES AS OF YET! I play mid level Beer league and pickup. Took several shots off the shoulders and arm with,
only really even felt one shot, but no bruising. The floating elbow pads are great, they float but are never out of position. I like the
rib protection too, fit nicely around and are not bulky at all.
OVERALL: VERY VERY HAPPY with these. Just what I needed, more protection without any restrictions
