Bauer Goalie Pad sizing is available below the standard sizing measurements.

Goalie Pad Sizing

The first thing you need to understand is that no two goalie pads fit the sameeven within the same manufacturer. We can take every model goalie pad: the overall size and knee cradle location will be slightly different. Most times these sizes are very close, side-by-side, however in some instances they can be quite a bit different. There are many variables that change how a goalie pad will fit, such as:

  • knee cradle dimensions,
  • foot channel structure,
  • even strapping systems.

We have read other “big box store” guides that state measuring ankle bone to knee cap and “double it” is the ideal method. Well it is not that easy – therefore we took it upon ourselves to measure every single make and model we stock and created a fitting spreadsheet to provide you a precise guide to goalie pad sizing.

Please note, +1 and +2 sizing in goalie pads means an extra inch or two has been added to the top of the pad (the thigh rise) to increase 5-hole coverage in the butterfly position and does not impact the sizing below.

Goalie Pad Sizing Measurement

Our goalie pad sizing spreadsheet is based off where your ankle bone would fit in each pad, therefore where that would put the center of your knee in the knee cradle on the corresponding pad.

How to precisely measure your leg.

The key measurement in fitting any goalie pad is the center of the ankle bone to center of the knee cap. This should be done using a tape measure with the goalies legs shoulder-width apart and slightly bent. This measurement should be taken on the outside of the leg. With this measurement, you can compare your number (in inches) against our sizing spreadsheet below to see what size pad would be an ideal fit.

If your ankle bone to knee cap measurement is correct, we have found that you have a very high chance the pad will be a great fit. If your ankle bone to knee cap does not fit the goalie pad, your knee will either be above or below the knee cradle, meaning the pad and goalie can not properly function together.
