The upper body protection padding for a goaltender is designed to protect the collarbone, entire chest and abdominal areas, as well as down the arms to the wrist.

The arm pads should overlap slightly with the gloves while allowing movement of the wrists and hands. Elbow padding must be properly positioned over the elbow. Arm padding should extend down the wrist. The body pad should tuck into the pants about 2” below the navel. Straps are utilized to fasten properly.

Air dry after every session.
