GHP 023: The State Of Goalie Gear In 2020 w/ The Goalie Gear Nerd
In today’s episode I’m joined by the Goalie Gear Nerd to discuss the State of Goalie Gear in 2020.
We chat about why exactly Lefevre and CCM went their separate ways, and the likely root cause of it. We dive deep into some of the hottest gear items of the new year including full break downs of the CCM Axis series, Bauer Ultrasonic’s, Lefevre’s, Warrior’s, Brian’s and Vaughn’s. We disassemble the “made in China” myth, and why exactly it doesn’t mean worse production quality. Why each goalie’s playing style should determine what brand they wear. And we discuss some of his favorite gear items of the year from head to toe, and the biggest gear hack available for goalies today.
