The Bauer Vapor 1X gloves are a top tier model from the latest Vapor series. The vastly popular vapor line will offer a tapered fit which is wider in the cuff with a more standard fit through the fingers. The flared out free flex cuff provides excellent wrist mobility while the standard fit through the fingers helps improve overall control. As far as protective properties, the 1X uses triple density foam protection which includes their Poron XRD and Aerolite foam throughout the entire glove to provide maximum protection without adding any weight. To really ensure full protection the 1X is also outfitted with PE inserts in the cuff, backhand, and fingers. But Bauer didn’t just stop there, the backhand padding found on the inside of the glove acts as yet another layer of defense with the addition of XRD foam working alongside the comfort foam. These gloves will come in an AX Suede QUATTRO grip palm. This is a very soft material that gives an unmatched feel for the shaft of the stick. An additional overlay and durability patch further enhance the life of the palm in high abrasion areas. To add some style, the palm is offered in several different colors to match the overall color scheme of the glove. For the lining material, Bauer’s 37.5 Technology keeps your hand cool and dry with its moisture management properties. This works by changing water into vapor and allows that vapor to escape out of the glove. Because the Vapor lineup is really all about mobility, this glove features a 3-piece index finger, and 3-piece flex lock thumb to give you the ability to maneuver and grip the stick without limitations. As a high end glove aesthetics are on point with a fully embroidered Bauer logo giving the 1X an incredibly clean and professional look.
