Goalie Leg Pad Sizing
When sizing for Leg Pads, there are a few things to consider: mid-ankle to mid-knee (outer ankle bone to middle of knee cap); mid-knee to mid-thigh; skate size; level of play (level of play helps determine which level of pad you should be purchasing); and potential growth.
The fitting of Leg Pads is relatively easy, however, there are some variables. Potential growth and preference are the two main variables to consider. Also, elite goalies, or even goalies that are frequently on the ice, should consider a higher quality pad.
Measuring mid-ankle to mid-knee will show you what size pad you would be in, in accordance to a sizing chart, without the plus sizing. Measuring mid-knee to mid-thigh will give you a rough idea of what plus size measurement you could use. However, the initial size of the pad is more important than the overall size of the pad.
It is very important in Leg Pad sizing to make sure the center of your knee places roughly 1.5 inches below the middle of the knee stack. It is crucial that it is NOT the top of your knee (where your knee cap meets your thigh) that is 1.5” below the middle of the knee stack, because you will not land on the knee stack while in the butterfly. 1.5” will provide a sufficient amount of growing room, while still allowing the user to have proper control of their pads.
If you are sizing up for an Intermediate, Junior or Youth size pad, the knee stack will be smaller than a senior. In this case, the center of your knee should be roughly 1 inch below the center of the knee stack. It is crucial that it is NOT the top of your knee (where your knee cap meets your thigh) that is 1” below the middle of the knee stack, because you will not land on the knee stack while in the butterfly. 1” will provide a sufficient amount of growing room, while still allowing the user to have proper control of their pads.
If you are near the end of growing, or finished growing completely, you want to land directly in the middle of the knee stack. This is considered a perfect fit. Being in the center of the knee stack gives you best control of the pad while playing, as well as evenly distributing your weight throughout the pad while in the butterfly to give a proper seal on the ice.
When viewing sizing online, most leg pads will be offered in sizes we have in stock. Sizing charts are provided below and on each product to double check where you line up and as well list all the sizes available. These charts are for reference only and personal preference is a factor as well when looking for the best fit.
