When deciding which hockey leg pads to buy, you need to ensure the protection of the leg pad matches the level of your play and position. Typically attackers will go for slimmer and lighter shin pads and defenders fuller knee and shin protection as they often are blocking shots. The knee and shin area is the most hit area and so ensure the pad you choose is comfortable and protective. Short cuff at the top provide a little better mobility but at the cost of that little extra protection. The best ice hockey shin pads will have excellent calf protection, easy in multi straps, away from the front protection and superb padding in both the shin and knee area.
