Source Exclusive Bauer X:Velocity Hockey Protective Equipment Review

by Source For Sports Product Reviews Based on the Vapor X800 series of protective gear, Source For Sports has upped the ante with the Source Exclusive Bauer Vapor X:Velocity line.

Based on the Vapor X800 series of protective gear, Source For Sports has upped the ante with the Source Exclusive Bauer Vapor X:Velocity line.

The shoulder pads are a tapered, multi-segmented design that allow for mobility, and the hydrophobic mesh liner wicks moisture to keep you dry.  Shoulder caps have MD foam inserts, as do the front and kidney panels. The sternum and the spinal areas have MD foam and PE inserts to provide lightweight yet critical protection in these vulnerable areas. Source For Sports has added Aerolite padding in the back rib area, an upgrade from the inline model. The molded thermoformed bicep guard has also been upgraded with a free flex design for increased mobility. An upgraded padded collar also offers incredible comfort. The Bauer Vapor X:Velocity shoulder pads feature a removable belly pad to allow you to customize your protection and create a seamless front with your hockey pants for superior coverage.

The Vapor X:Velocity elbow pads are designed with a tapered fit. The free flex cap construction has injected MD foam to protect you against injury from impacts. Both the bicep guard and wrist guard are also made with MD foam and PE inserts, perfect for taking the sting out of stick slashes. An interior donut sling and 3 strap system keeps your elbow properly positioned for maximum protection.  We have upgraded the bicep guard and added lightweight but extremely protective Aerolite material.


A thermoformed ribbed shin cap and injected knee cap offer exceptional security in the tapered-fit shin guards. The knee wings and calf guard have a PE insert to help protect these sensitive areas. Source For Sports has upgraded the strapping system with the 2 strap wraparound from the X900 series.

To complement and work together with the shoulder, elbow and shin guards, the Bauer Vapor X:Velocity hockey pants feature Aerolite technology with a PE insert in the spine area. The molded dome construction and 2-piece ergonomic thigh pads add to the protection to reduce injury when getting hit, blocking shots, or rubbing on the boards. Stretch fabrics in the panels and leg gussets allow you to maximize your forward flexion without inhibiting mobility. Keeping you cool is the Hydrophobic mesh liner, with an abrasion-resistant 400 denier nylon outer. Best of all, with the extension fit, you can get up to 1 inch extra pant length to make sure your pants fit throughout the whole season.
