CCM Chest & Arm Protector Fit
Between CCM’s two chests, E-Flex and Premier, the fit in the torsos are very similar; however, the arms on the CL line are longer than those provided on the Premier line. Compared to their competitors, both lines are similar to the rest in torso length, but the arm length on the CL lines are also longer, on average.
Goalie Chest & Arm Protector Sizing
Sizing a chest protector is important to ensure the goaltenders range of motion (ROM) is uninhibited, while still offering complete coverage from impact. There are steps necessary to finding the right fit in your chest protector, and the first is to know your measurements. Here at The Hockey Shop, we like to use two measurements: torso length and arm span. Once you have these two measurements, match your measurements to our sizing charts.
Sizing before Purchase
To fit your proper sized chest & arm protector, you will need a soft tape measurer, a pen and paper, and the assistance of a helper.
To measure your arm span, hold your arms out and measure from wrist to wrist. Start from the bottom of one forearm (you’ll see a bone where your wrist is) and measure to the other; make sure to not measure from fingertip to fingertip, as hand size is not relative to arm length.
- 1. Have your helper locate the bony bump at the base of your neck (this is located where your shoulders meet your neck). This is your 7th cervical vertebra (C7).
2. Place your hands on your hips, point your fingers down, and your thumbs in a horizontal position around your back, forming an imaginary line.
3. Taking the tape measurer, have your helper measure from your C7 to the imaginary line, and you will have your torso length.
Once you have these two measurements, cross-reference them with our available sizing chart.
Sizing after Purchase
After receiving your chest & arm, you are going to want to check if your size fits the following criteria:
- 1. The arms end just before your wrist. This is important because you want to ensure that the wrist portion of the arms do not interfere with your blocker and trapper—this still provides adequate growing room for the blocker and trapper, which usually last you 1 to 2 years. Depending on the model, adjustable arms may be an offered feature, which is an added bonus for goaltenders that are still growing.
2.Your elbows fit securely in to the pocket of the elbow protection, and do not shift too far away from them. Keep in mind, arms usually have to be adjusted while putting on your chest & arm.
3.Make sure the shoulders of the chest & arm are sitting comfortably atop, and wrapped around your shoulders. This can be seen visually by looking at the collar of the chest & arm; you want the collar
Each brand of chest & arms will have not only a different shape, but also a slightly different fit.

The ergonomic shoulder wings are constructed with molded HD foam while the sternum is reinforced with PE to protect the goaltender from impact while economically keeping weight to a minimum. The arms on the other hand, include wrap around molded bicep and forearm protection to guard the goaltender while allowing air channels for increased breathability throughout the arm. The elbow blocks on the front of the arm are constructed with molded PE foam and fully squared off to maximize coverage. Lastly, the back features an adjustable fit system with the use of Velcro to help the Premier chest/arm sit at the desired place on your body while the spine pad lies flush along your back.
