  1. I understand that some are fitting their pads in. I haven’t tried, as that makes it too heavy to comfortably carry for me.
  2. It definitely seems well put together. I definitely like it for the price a I paid. I wanted a backpack goalie bag and the only other one I’m aware of is the Passau one (which is likely a similar price point to what this one will be...my guess). I like it better than Passau’s. The U opening is much more desirable. The size I like better. It appears to be durable material but not as physically heavy as Passau’s material. I like all the pockets inside. I haven’t been asked to give feedback yet to Pacific Rink. There are a few minor things I would suggest. Would I pay full price for one, I might, $200 for a goalie bag seems a drop in the bucket compared to the cost of everything else ($600 glove, $400 blocker, $600 Chest protector, $1000 paint job on my helmet....list goes on & on).
  3. The Hockey Shop. 20% off today only, online only.
  4. I have 3 subzero gloves (one subzero 2 & two subzero 3). All pro palm. I have no issue with closure once broken in...and I’m female with small hands. I did have to break them in, just like the “old” days. Work the closure, tie them up, straight out play with them for awhile. The reason I bought pro palms is that I wanted them to last. I don’t want them broken down in a year. If I’m going to pay $500+ for a glove I want to get several years out of it. Two of them snap shut no issues, third one is still a work in progress but I’ve put it to the side for now (only purchased it because I heard the subzero line might be discontinued and it’s my favorite glove). Like almost every aspect of goalie equipment, it comes down to personal preference.
  5. Nope, just the glove. That’s all the seller had. Pads would be too big anyway.
  6. It is a Halak pro return but it says it’s a Subzero 3. Feels like the same break as my stock Subzero 3. Has a few differences though with the shape of the cuff and how the back of it Velcro’s. ..now you’ve made me wonder. Perhaps it’s a hybrid.
  7. I’m not sure what their price will be. Their website still shows the prototype pricing. Full retail pricing will likely be around $200US since that’s where their player bag is priced. The two shoulder straps do come and are held together with the padded flap with snaps, for over the shoulder carrying. For the prototype, they did offer two strapping options, the one I got and the one that’s on their current player’s bag which is a top set of shoulder straps and hidden backpack straps underneath the bag. Their website has some videos that demonstrates this. https://www.pacificrink.com/collections/bags/products/player-bag?variant=23544651782
  8. It is double stitched right where it anchors and then the edge of the red strap is stitched all the way around to the other side (seems like seat belt type material). I have seen straps attached with more reinforced stitching then this...will have to wait and see how durable the stitching is.
  9. The internals... First thing to note, is this bag has a U-shape opening....In my opinion all bags should open this way...so nice. So with the equipment out, you will see there’s a lot going on inside. If you like organization, you’ll like this. There is a centre divider that I actually do use. I can fit my chest protector (Brown 2400...so one of the bulkier units out there) and pants on one side, keeping mask, glove, blocker, knees pads,...on the other. The divider can be made to lie flat, if you prefer a more open bag (pic 3). There are skate pockets (removable if you don’t want them), with a water bottle holder built into both. At one end there’s a garment bag, also removable and washable if you want to throw the whole thing in the washing machine. Other end has two zippered pockets. The larger lower one has some built in dividers if you really want to keep organized. All my equipment is senior size, but pants and chestie are senior small, just to give reference too the bulk of my stuff. I do have a generous amount of extra room if for some reason I wanted to carry extra stuff around.
  10. I was able to snag one of these first run goalie bags from Pacific Rink. They produced a limited amount to have some of us tested them out and give feedback before going full run with them. Background: my preference is a carry bag. I have owned a wheeled bag but found it more of a nuisance and heavy if you get one with a good frame in it to lift in/out of the car. I carry my pads separate over the shoulder. I did purchase the Passau goalie backpack but didn’t find it worked for me. All my equipment plus pads made the bag too heavy for my 5’4” frame. I always felt like I was going to throw my back out. Removing the pads from the bag made the bag too empty and it didn’t carry properly. Ideally, I wanted a backpack bag but smaller than what Passau offers but still bigger than Player backpacks...so I could get through doors more easily but still carry my pads separately. I’ve used the Pacific Rink bag several times and so far it is exactly what I was looking for. These first 3 pictures show it fully loaded up. It has an outer pocket on one side and one small pocket on one end. The top centre zipper is actually a third external pocket that you can actually access from the inside through an internal zipper. I keep my jerseys in it. Picture 4 shows the carrying straps. I have them clipped together in the “backpack” config. If you leave them unclipped, the bag can be used as a regular over one shoulder carry bag. I will show the internals on a second post.
  11. I noticed the wear after the 9th time I wore them, so my claim was well within the 90 day warranty period. I think that’s the only reason they replaced them. I was told wear is not usually covered but because it happened pretty much right away they did.
  12. The Hockey Shop put some heavy industrial glue on the wear for me when I first noticed it. Stayed on for a few skates, then wore off. I was surprised CCM warranty’d them as the warranty normally covers structural issues not wear isssues, but obviously very pleased they did.
  13. CCM allowed the warranty claim. Cam at the Hockey Shop was fantastic to deal with. The replacement pads...almost all Jenpro, just a little weave on the front.
  14. I’m the same height and ATK, so I can relate to really being intermediate in size but wanting pro senior quality gear. I believe most companies will make you 32” pads custom...so you’re looking at spending $1800. I’ve been in 32” CCM pro intermediate for several years now. CCM pro intermediate use exactly the same materials & foams as their senior pro. And although someone might tell you they’re 10” in wide, I can guarantee you they are in fact 11” wide just like the senior pads. One area they are smaller is the length of the boot. Intermediate sizing assumes you’re in smaller skates. I personally love the shorter boot because I do in fact have smaller skates. I had a set of CCM senior pro in 33”...I struggled more with the slightly longer boot tripping me up then the extra height. CCM is one of the only companies to still offer Intermediate Pro as an option. They have slightly less options then senior pro but still do have different strapping choices, leg channel options, and of course colour options. They cost ~ $900 CDN... half the price of senior pro. I also found the hockey shop didn’t openly advertise CCM Intermediate Pros but had no issue ordering them for me.
