  1. Thanks for the feedback guys. Our shirt design has a list of ideas and we are talking to a few possible manufacturers to see what they can do and what will the pricepoint be.
  2. This is actually a good time to ask some additional questions. What features etc would you like to see in a padded goalie shirt?
  3. Gator Armor shirts are based on the original Dan Farrell design and has not changed really other than color. We used to sell them, but German based company decided to go the other way, so we are not involved with them any more. Dan has several patents on his technology, but I am not sure who owns them these days. German based Gator Armor does not own the patents, they just produce the products based on those patents at China. Here's one of Dan's patents: https://www.google.fi/patents/US6295654?dq=Dan+farrell+%26+hockey&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiQo4jn8cTWAhXnJ5oKHTEcB-gQ6AEIPDAD Verbero foam blocks are different from Dan's original design and what Gator Armor uses today. We are working on a new padded long sleeve goalie compression shirt for GoaliePro product line. 1st protoype was just done and we will continue tweaking it until we are happy. If all goes well we may be able to introduce it sometime Q1/2018, but can't promise.
  4. Our company reps Brian's in Finland and we have not has any issues with quality or even the most complex specs on gear coming from Kingsville factory. Jukka
