Bauer, Reebok, CCM, Warrior, Easton and other top brands in the hockey industry make the best hockey equipment you can find, and that's why we choose to carry a variety of protective equipment for you to choose from. Elbow pads are one of the most important pieces of hockey protective gear. You'll find this out pretty quickly when you fall on the ice for the first time. Your elbows can take quite a beating throughout the course of a hockey game with all of the swinging hockey sticks, pucks and spills that you'll endure.
Choosing the right pair of hockey elbow pads is crucial for players of all ages and skill levels, and achieving a proper fit is just as important as picking the right brand, model and features. When you're shopping for hockey elbow pads, shoulder pads or any other piece of hockey protective gear, always make sure to check the sizing tab on the product page so that you can be sure you're choosing the correct size. If your elbow pads are too small, you won't have proper coverage for your forearms and the bottom of your triceps; and more importantly, your elbow won't be properly centered in the cap of the elbow pads. If your elbow pads are too big, they'll slip out of position while you skate and offer poor coverage for your elbow cap when you take a spill because your elbow may slide completely out of the cup leaving it completely unprotected.
Every manufacturer has its own sizing charts that correspond to the products they offer, and although the sizes are comparable from one brand to the next, it's always best to use the chart provided by the manufacturer of the product that you're ordering. If you or the child for whom you are ordering elbow pads is still growing, if you are trying to leave some extra room for growth, we do not recommend going any more than one size above the manufacturer's recommendations for your current size.
