Total Hockey: Vapor X:60 Protective

Overview: The Vapor X:60 shoulder, shin and elbow pads allow the quick, agile player to reach their peak performance. This line is designed to fit the needs of the quick, light-footed player. The focus of the Vapor line is mobility, which means comfort and weight are very important features of the line. Additionally, this series was designed to be breathable both during and after use.

  • Shoulder: Made up of lightweight armor, these shoulder pads allow the player to feel incredibly comfortable, quick and, of course, protected. The shoulder, chest and spinal-plates all feature composite protection. The shoulder and chest plates are adjustable, making it more customizable than its competitors. This is known as the Personalized Fit System (PFS) and it’s pretty cool.
  • Shin: Consisting of the same materials as the shoulder and elbow pads, the Vapor X:60 shin guards do more than offer protection. They too are lightweight, breathable and very comfortable. The coolest feature of the X:60 Protective Line is the Thermo Core Liner, which you can really feel in the shin.
  • Thermo Core Liner: Created by Bauer, these moisture-wicking materials act as a cooling agent while in use. Additionally, the anti-bacterial properties help to create a dry, light and mobile performance, which is always an issue in shin pads.
  • Elbow: Like the shin and shoulder pads, the Vent Armor Foam helps the player feel secure in any situation. Another cool feature, also found on the shin guard, is the Anchor Strap 2.0—basically an incredibly breathable and comfortable stretchy strap.

Other Features of the Vapor Protective Line: VAPOR Free Flex System, Vent Armor Foam, Dual Density Arch Protection, Poly Reinforced Bicep Guards (elbow only), Perforated Foam Panels and Removable Core Protection.

Skill Level: The X:60 line is intended for high-level players because of the amount of performance and protection it offers.

Competition: Easton Stealth and CCM Vector protective are also built for speed, much like the Vapor line.

Conclusion: If you consider yourself a quick, mobile and light-footed hockey player, then this is the line for you.
