Choosing Ice Hockey Gloves

In this article, we will again focus on choosing the right size of ice hockey gloves. We will show you how to measure your palm and pick gloves that fit you the best. We will also discuss the differences between basic and high-quality palms


Ice hockey gloves come in sizes for children (YT), juniors (JR), and seniors (SR), marked with numbers 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15, which denote a length from the beginning of your palm to the tip of your longest finger in inches. If you choose a wrong size, the gloves may be too uncomfortable and a larger glove might slip from your hand during the game. Check out the picture below for instructions on how to measure your hand properly.


Another aspect is the palm of the glove. You can tell from a picture whether a palm is made of a simple, or a high-quality material with anti-abrasion reinforcement. A palm made of a regular material is usually beige or white and hardens over time, resulting in a worsening sensitivity. High-quality palms come usually in a darker colour, feature an anti-abrasion reinforcement, and last softer for longer.
