The 2017 Bauer Vapor X900 chest & arm protector is the price-point version of the pro-level Vapor 1X. The Fast Strap harness system allows you to quickly, and accurately, adjust the fit, all while providing greater mobility. Free Flex foam is used on the edges of the shoulder floaters for a greater cross-body range of motion. THERMO MAX liner is used on the inside to wick moisture, keeping the unit relatively dry while you're on the ice.

Bauer Vapor Chest Protector Fit

In comparison with other brands, and its Bauer counterpart Supreme, the Reactor series fits fairly similar through the torso; however, the arms measure up a bit longer than the others.

Goalie Chest Protector Pad Sizing

Sizing a chest protector is important to ensure the goaltenders range of motion (ROM) is uninhibited, while still offering complete coverage from impact. There are steps necessary to finding the right fit in your chest protector, and the first is to know your measurements. Here at The Hockey Shop, we like to use two measurements: torso length and arm span. Once you have these two measurements, match your measurements to our sizing charts.

Sizing before Purchase

To fit for a properly sized shoulder pad, you will need a soft tape measurer to measure and record your chest measurement. To do this, find the widest point of your chest (usually just below your armpits) and measure the circumference. Record the measurement in inches and compare to the available sizing charts in each brand. Also compare your height, weight and age to find your best fit.

Sizing after Purchase

To fit your proper sized chest & arm protector, you will need a soft tape measurer, a pen and paper, and the assistance of a helper.

Arm Span
To measure your arm span, hold your arms out and measure from wrist to wrist. Start from the bottom of one forearm (you’ll see a bone where your wrist is) and measure to the other; make sure to not measure from fingertip to fingertip, as hand size is not relative to arm length.

Torso Length

    1. Have your helper locate the bony bump at the base of your neck (this is located where your shoulders meet your neck). This is your 7th cervical vertebra (C7).
    2. Place your hands on your hips, point your fingers down, and your thumbs in a horizontal position around your back, forming an imaginary line.
    3. Taking the tape measurer, have your helper measure from your C7 to the imaginary line, and you will have your torso length.

Once you have these two measurements, cross-reference them with our available sizing chart.

Sizing after Purchase

After receiving your chest & arm, you are going to want to check if your size fits the following criteria:

    1. The arms end just before your wrist. This is important because you want to ensure that the wrist portion of the arms do not interfere with your blocker and trapper—this still provides adequate growing room for the blocker and trapper, which usually last you 1 to 2 years. Depending on the model, adjustable arms may be an offered feature, which is an added bonus for goaltenders that are still growing.
    2.Your elbows fit securely in to the pocket of the elbow protection, and do not shift too far away from them. Keep in mind, arms usually have to be adjusted while putting on your chest & arm.
    3.Make sure the shoulders of the chest & arm are sitting comfortably atop, and wrapped around your shoulders. This can be seen visually by looking at the collar of the chest & arm; you want the collar

Each brand of chest & arms will have not only a different shape, but also a slightly different fit.
