I went straight to Bauer’s goal category managers, Mark Gignac and Spencer Freer, to find out.

After the success of the original Optik series from 2017, this year Brian’s improves on much loved features while also borrowing technology from their recent G-Netik 4 pads.

Warrior GT2 Pro Chest Protector Review

Warrior GT2 Pro Chest Protector Review

To round out Warriors GT2 line comes the new and improved GT2 pro chest protector, with added protection, new materials and tapered pieces to reduce interference. Just to be clear, I think the GT was already one of the best chests on the market in 2017 without many improvements to be made, but Warrior made sure to only touch on small details that will benefit the user.

Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Goal Pant Review

Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Goal Pant Review

If it's not broke don't fix it, that's what they say right? Well that's just what Bauer has done with the 2X Pro pant. The 1X was a great pant but there were still some areas that could be upgraded so instead of redesigning the pant, they made those keys upgrades while, remaining much the same.
Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Chest Protector Review

Bauer Vapor 2X Pro Chest Protector Review

Just like the leg pads, trapper and blocker the Bauer 2X Pro chest has seen a complete makeover, so they can truly become a reactive line of gear. After getting some time to play around with the chest and see what it's all about, I think the 2X Pro chest is going to one of the best hitting the market this year.
