10 Best Hockey Gloves For Sale 2017-2018 Reviews

bauer totalone mx3 If you are looking for the best hockey gloves for sale you came to the right place. This is an essential piece of equipment and there are a couple things to consider when making you selection.

I’ll show you what to look for based on my own experience and expert opinions, as well as my top picks for the 2017-2018 season.


What To Look For

There are a lot of hockey companies out there and some of the best are Bauer, Warrior, CCM and Mission. They’ve been making hockey equipment for a long time (In Bauer and CCM’s case over a 100 years). You should purchase one of their products because you know you are getting a quality, well made and durable product.

Besides buying from a well known hockey name, there are a few more things to consider. They are:

  • Picking the right size
  • Whether or nor you want a short cuff or long cuff
  • Comfortable fit

First off, you need to determine your glove size. This post focuses on senior gloves so all options are either 13 inches, 14 inches or 15 inches. You can determine which size is best for you by measuring the base of your middle finger to your elbow. Check out the chart below for sizing:

After you get the right fit, you need to determine if you want a long cuff or short cuff. A long cuff protects your entire forearm and leaves no space between the glove and elbow pad; you do lose a little mobility with a long cuff though. A short cuff leaves a little space between the elbow pad and glove. This gives you a little more mobility but you get less protection and your arm is open to slashes.

Lastly, you want a glove that is comfortable to you. There are a few different types and they have slightly different feels. One doesn’t feel better than the other and it really comes down to preference. Make sure the product you select has nice padding and materials that won’t irritate your hands.

All the gloves on this list meet these criteria. They come from the best companies on earth, have several different sizes to fit all senior hands, and there are different cuffs and types to satisfy anyone’s personal preference. There’s a glove to fit everyone’s budget too.

So now that you know what to look for, let’s take a look at my top picks.

Bauer Vapor 1X Pro Senior Hockey Gloves **Top Pick**

bauer vapor 1x gloves Company: Bauer

Price: $$$$

Sizes: 13 inch, 14 inch, 15 inch

Rating: 5/5

In my mind and experience, Bauer makes the best hockey equipment. They’ve been in business since the 1920’s and everything that comes from them is high quality and durable. They really know what they’re doing. They make a ton of different gloves (and you’ll see a bunch more on this list) but the 1X Pro’s are their best option. You can find this product on the hands of your favorite NHL players and it features:

  • The protection and feel needed for all competitive and elite level hockey players
  • Nylon and cable mesh exterior to prevent wear and tear and offer maximum breathability
  • 37.5″ technology to keep moisture out of the glove and to ensure dry hands

There is durable padding and plastic inserts through out the glove to protect your hands and fingers. There’s extra grip in the palm to give you maximum stick control too. If you like to get out on the ice every once in while you probably won’t need this glove. However, if you are serious about the sport this is a product you must consider.

Here’s a video that goes a little deeper:

Warrior Senior Covert DT1 Hockey Glove

Price: $$$

Sizes: 13 inch, 14 inch, 15 inch

Rating: 4.8/5

Warrior is a really nice company and I own a few of their products (including their hockey pants). The Warrior Covert DT1’s are one of the best gloves on the market and they are universally loved; they get a ton of high reviews too. Besides offering a nice design and comfortable fit, these feature:

  • Bone System and Tri-Lam technology to give you the lightest glove possible while still providing maximum protection
  • Clarino Smart Palm+ for added feel
  • Vented outer design that gives your hands a chance to breathe

Also, the Covert DT1’s have built in material to keep your hands from sweating and getting over heated. This glove is good for all skill levels and will provide competitive players with the protection and flexibility needed to perform at their absolute highest.

This is another elite level glove offered by Bauer. Like the X1’s the Supreme TotalOne MX3’s balance comfort, feel and protection perfectly. This product fits naturally to your hand and comes with durable FlexOrb Poron XRO Foam through out the glove. Additionally, the Mx3’s feature:

  • A flexible and mobile design that won’t inhibit your play
  • Enhanced moisture control to keep your hands dry
  • Patented 3 piece Free Flex thumb lock

There’s a lot of shared technology between these and the X1’s; this product is a little cheaper though. Many people love this product and I guarantee you will to.

CCM QLT 250 Senior Hockey Gloves

ccm 250 Company: CCM

Price: $

Sizes: 13 inch, 14 inch, 15 inch

Rating: 4.7/5

CCM is another hockey giant and this is one of their lower end products. It’s perfect for someone who likes to play hockey as a hobby and all other entry level individuals; the QLT 250’s provide enough protection and performance to excel in those situations. It’s made with lightweight material and comes with:

  • Reinforcements through out to extend the life of the glove
  • Mesh nylon liner to keep moisture and dampness under control
  • Relaxed fit so you don’t feel constricted

Any elite level player would know not to purchase these. But if you love hockey and like to play with friends every once in a while, you will get a lot of use out of the QLT 250’s.

Like I said before, Bauer makes a lot of quality products (including skates and sticks) and you can add the Nexus 1N’s to that list. These gloves are made to protect your hands against everything. You get all the perks of the previous Bauer gloves with the Nexus’, including:

  • Double Density Foams with Seven Technology
  • A Pro nylon shell
  • Durable palm with added grips for top of the line feel

This is a piece of equipment tailored to high performers and if that describes you, you should think about the Nexus 1n’s.

The Vapor’s are one of the top selling hockey gloves and for good reason. They are extremely well made and are very mobile and flexible. Also, they feature:

  • Dual density foam on every part of the glove for added protection
  • Thermamax lining that does a great job keeping your hands dry and cool
  • Dynamic flex cuff

These are a really great value. If you don’t want to spend over $100 on a pair of gloves but still want top notch quality, the Vapor x800 might be the choice for you.

Bauer Vapor X80 Senior Hockey Gloves

Price: $

Sizes: 13 inch, 14 inch, 15 inch

Rating: 4.8/5

Almost every Bauer product on this list is geared towards highly competitive hockey players (and the prices of them reflect that). These are far less expensive and can be worn by hobbyists and less competitive players. My friend uses these for his men’s league team and he loves them. For good reason too. They come with:

  • Dual density foam to protect your hands
  • Synthetic leather and nylon mesh exterior that gives breathability and a light weight design
  • Nice snug fit without constricting your hands

The palm’s of these gloves use the perfect amount of grip too. You will have full control over your stick and be able to play at your highest.

Company: Mission/Bauer

Price: $$

Sizes: 13 inch, 14 inch

Rating: 4.8/5

Mission Hockey was bought by Bauer around 10 years ago and they offer really high quality hockey gear. The NLS:01’s sport a nice design and a lot of features that make them pro level. They’re very comfortable and:

  • Are durable and will last through a long, tough hockey season

These aren’t too expensive either. A good value for any level hockey player.
