Default Most protective gloves?

I depend on my hands to earn a living, so I'm looking for the MOST protective gloves on the market, especially in terms of the outside of the thumb and the back of the wrist. These spots seem to be the places where I get the most slashes, and I want something really protective. I play defense, so the mobility issue of the glove is not as important as the protection. I also wear wrist guards, but I'd love to give them up if I could find something with a larger and more protective cuff. Any suggestions or recommendations?

I currently wear Vapor XX from a few years ago, and they've held up fairly well (small tear along the seam of one finger), but a slash on the outside of the thumb up near the tip left a pretty deep bruise for a couple of weeks. Made it a bit uncomfortable at work. Not married to one brand or another, just looking for something that will really keep the hands from being injured. Broke my wrist a few years back during a game and want to do all I can to stay off the injured list. Price is not a factor, but also not going to buy the most expensive glove unless it truly is the most protective available.

Thanks to all in advance for your recommendations and thoughts.

My combination of Bauer 16" 4-roll gloves with my longer forearm coverage of the Reebok 8k Pro elbow pads have done the trick for me. I could easily use a 15" glove, but I really like the extra coverage of the 16" glove.

gettign slashed on the back rolls of bauer 4 rolls still hurts, I'm speaking from experience. if you are looking for a 4 roll glove, I would look at the tps r8, they have plastic insterts on top of att the back rolls, and a lock thumb. most protective glove that I have worn

Warrior Projekts have good protection.

I speak to the best particular model to get, but I would imagine something pro stock would be ideal for you because of the more protective inserts they tend to have. You can find pro stock gloves being sold in the Classifieds section here or online, Ebay too. Finding them in typical stores, in Canada at least, would be tough.

probably custom warriors? 4 rolls are okay in the fingers, but the cuff/back roll arent the best

I agree with the ProStock option. I have two pairs of ProStock XXXX's and a Pair of NBH 4Rolls and they are the most protective gloves I've ever had. My only issue with the XXXX's is that the cuff roll doesn't have plastic inserts, however the backhand is phenomenal.

I feel that the pro XXXXs are still pretty thin, despite the plastic in them.
I like how my Franchises feel though. Solid all the way around.

I second the Projekts. I haven't felt a slash since I started using them.

Here's what the IW product page lists regarding protection:

Quote:
Protection:
Bone System: Dome-molded bone-shape plastics that follow the hand's anatomy
The Bone System utilizes, Volara Foam, HD Foam, LD Foam, and HDPE bone plastic creating tube like air pockets that disperses impacts out instead of through to the hand
Hyperactive thumb is internally segmented for forward flexion with backward hyperlock
I haven't tried these, but the Tuff-n-Lite Slash guards with Zoombang seem like they'd be both protective and mobile/flexible if you wanted even more wrist protection, plus they're cut resistant:
http://www.tuffnlitehockey.com/buy/store/

Quote:
Zoombang tm is soft and fluid-like to the touch.
Upon impact, Zoombang tm molecules stiffen and lock to
a solid-like state providing maximum protection.
After impact, Zoombang tm resumes to its soft fluid-like state.
Non-Toxic and will not dry-out, freeze or melt.

I thought the TPS R10 gloves seemed very protective.

My Missions



They are so bulky and not the best for mobility, but that is what you sacrifice when you want protection.

Reebok 11k - the extended cuff and padding on the back of the fingers work great. I'm yet to remember a hack on the hands or wrist!

I have some Eagle PPFs, they are excellent, plastic inserts throughout and lots of padding inside the gloves.

I like a nice protective glove myself. If you're a Warrior fan you should check out the Warrior Franchise Mega pro stock gloves that Pro Stock Hockey is selling. I have a buddy that purchased a pair and they are awesome. As soon as I need a new pair I'm going to pick up a pair as well. Could be what you're looking for..possibly.
