Oshnatour Posted Thursday at 07:30 PM Share Posted Thursday at 07:30 PM (edited) Hi, so I'm looking for a new chest protector, and I think I've mostly landed on the Bauer Hyperlite series. I've noticed that there are multiple options within the Hyperlite series and I was hoping someone here would be able to give me some insights on the differences and maybe have some discussion on the topic if possible. I noticed on Pure Hockey's website that they have the Hyperlite 2 for 620 usd, and then they have the Hyperlite 2 custom for 720... now where I get confused is I also see they have a Hyperlite 2 pro for 770. what are the differences from the Hyperlite 2 and the Hyperlite 2 pro? I noticed on the pro model customizer that they have the option to reinforce the shoulders and arms, is this the main difference? If I went this route does anyone have strong opinions on these reinforcements? I'm kinda weighing if it's worth it to go for a 770 dollar custom hyperlite 2 pro or if I should find a stock hyperlite 1 for 450? And I guess I'm also just looking for advice on a new chest in general. Should I consider the Bauer pro instead? Any other prefered ones? I'd be open to Brians, Vaughn, or maybe CCM (I was hoping the Lefevre one would be out by now lol). I'd hopefully be playing ACHA D2 or D3 next season and currently play decent beer league with a couple ex D1, D3 guys and ex euro/ low level pros. I'm obviously far from the top but I see some decent shots from time to time. I'm 5'9" 165 so I'm assuming I'd be looking at a medium. I'm currently coming from a Warrior Ritual pro first gen, and my main gripe right now is getting beat over the shoulders, so I'd like something with a bit more bulk, and I hate the arms, they get stuck on themselves. So any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks Omar Edited Thursday at 08:07 PM by Oshnatour Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
