Best Goalie Leg Pads

The leg pads on this list were chosen based on a number of different factors. The first being safety, and the second being durability. Because if you're paying top dollar you want to know you're protected and that your pads will really last. These pads also go above and beyond in customization, comfortability, and the ability to take your game to a new level in both rebound control and five-hole protection.

Bauer Supreme TotalOne Pro Goalie Leg Pads

So you want a good set of pads, but still aren’t sure what kind of pads will compliment your ever changing style; these are the pads for you. They’re built with fully adjustable knee lock, thigh guard, and boot straps, as well as comfort foam that will reset to your liking every time something is adjusted. These are hands down the absolute best choice for any goalie that is new to the game, or anyone that just wants to try some new tricks between the pipes.

Bauer Reactor 6000 Goalie Leg Pads

These pads are made for top of the line goalies who find themselves in a constant war within the crease. They are made to NHL specifications and will last for years, even at the highest level; which also means that if you play at a less than professional level and take good care of these, you may not need to replace these for an extremely long time. They’re a play off of the older Reactor pads from the 90’s that players loved because they were constructed from the inside out, which made for better rebound control and durability.

Vaughn LT90 Ventus Goalie Leg Pads

These pads are some of the lightest I’ve ever seen, but they’re also some of the toughest and most comfortable. The optional upper thigh strap can be applied for players that are looking for more support if they want the top of the pads to closely hug their legs. The straps are also made of leather which will ensure they last much longer than any other strap system on the market. The curved inner side of the top of the pads will also help to close the five-hole very smoothly when dropping to the butterfly.

Warrior Ritual Pro Custom Goalie Leg Pads

Warrior Ritual Pro Custom Goalie Leg Pads

Warrior’s Ritual Pro Custom leg pads aren’t just fun to look at; they’re some of the most trustworthy pads available. The first thing that stands out is the rounded pad section around the boot, which ensures that when a goalie needs to push off his skate that he won’t accidentally push off his pad. Another great feature is the extra strong construction that is made to disperse the overall bending and stress that leg pads endure over their lifetime, ensuring that the pads won’t start falling apart around the knees. The pads are also fully adjustable, and will serve any kind of playing style well.

Brians G-Netik Goalie Leg Pads

Brian’s latest set of leg-pads helps to not only ensure that goalies can close their five-hole with a perfect seal, but that they can maintain the butterfly position with an extended calf wing that will help with balance with players crashing the crease trying to knock you into your net. The internal flex system makes the bending at the knees feel very comfortable and natural, and also cuts down on break-in time. The strap system is traditional and should feel very comfortable and familiar to players who have been in the game for years.
