What is the Proper Fit for Hockey Gloves?

  • The main concern with the fit of a glove is making sure the gap between the glove and the elbow pad is minimal.
  • The tightness or looseness of a glove is an individual preference.
  • To get the proper measurement for the Hockey Glove, you must have the persons arm bent and fingers extended all the way. Take the measurement from his/her mid forearm to his/ her middle finger.
  • When selecting a glove, personal preference often comes into play. Some players prefer a looser fit, while others prefer a snug glove. Regardless, there are some safety considerations of the hand and forearm to be taken into account for sizing.
  • To determine the correct size glove, measure from your finger tips to the end of your elbow pad (i.e. if this distance measures 13.7”, a 14” glove is the proper size glove). If your fingers touch the end of the glove, it is too small. The cuff of the glove should extend to the bottom of your elbow pads, leaving no part of your lower arm exposed. If you prefer a shorter cuff, you may consider wearing protective wrist guards in the uncovered area. Also, a player seeking more protection should look for plastic inserts for extra protection.
