Bauer Vapor X700 Junior Goalie Goalie Leg Pads
The VAPOR X700 Goal Pad offers lightweight features. The Tapered Flex Core Construction gives goalies an added level of flexibility. The design also maximizes the landing zone. The under-the-pant thigh protector provides both comfort and protection. This allows goalies to focus on stopping the puck. The Bauer Vapor series is the hybrid or athletic style series from Bauer. With the Vapor series, the gear is made too be softer and move easier with the goalie. For any goaltender looking at the Senior Pro level of gear, price and quality are very important factors. We feel that Bauer has done a very nice job over the past few years of providing goalies great performing gear at this price point. The Vapor Series leg pads from Bauer are a softer leg pad for a more hybrid style goalie. The Vapor pad also has a larger s-shape in the pad compared to a Bauer Supreme leg pad. This makes it easier for a goalie with a narrow butterfly to close there five hole since the pad will curve inward more then a butterfly or coverage style pad (like the Supreme). The weight of the Bauer Vapor pad is on par or lighter then the lightest goalie leg pads on the market today.

Sizing Differences: Youth, Junior & Intermediate
Many parents do not understand the sizing terms used in goalie equipment. Youth, junior and intermediate are often confused as too which term goes with which age group. We will explain the differences to help eliminate any errors in the ordering process. Youth goalie gear is the smallest on the market. This is generally for your five year to eight year old goalies. Youth gear is generally less expensive and not made with high quality materials. Higher quality materials and foams at a youth level pose two issues. One; they are too stiff for a small goalie to move around and two; the goalie will outgrow the gear before they even break it in. Therefore it is ok to have lesser quality at the youth goalie gear age group. The junior goalie equipment is for the eight year to the twelve year old goalie. This again is not made with the highest quality materials. The quality is certainly better then the youth goalie gear however the need for flexibility and movement outweighs the need for high end materials that will last several years. In the junior level gear, specs are more defined and equipment is made with performance in mind. Generally junior goalie equipment will have a lot of performance features that will be found in higher level gear. Lastly is the intermediate level goalie equipment. Intermediate gear is generally for eleven to fourteen year old goalies or even smaller adults. This gear generally uses higher density foams and higher quality materials. Goalies in this age group put a lot of wear and tear on their gear so manufactures need to build it accordingly. Everything about intermediate gear is made with higher level performance features and extra protection features. Players at this age group are playing faster and shooting harder therefore the goalie gear needs to be better as well.
