Protective gear is just that, but it is also about fit and comfort. Your player needs equipment that fits properly and feels like it is a part of them so they can focus on their performance and not how they feel.
Gear lasts longer when it is maintained properly after every use, this just means inspecting it between practices and games.
The listed gear is a small batch of what is out there, and you don't have to buy the most expensive it just has to protect your player.
All protective gear listed can be found through the links listed on our main page.
