Protective Equipment

Protective equipment includes helmets, but more specifically includes padding and gloves.

Gloves are used to protect your hands against hit or checks to the stick. When a defender is checking or hitting you they are only supposed to hit the stick and gloves, gloves offer a protection to your hands when hit. Gloves could be split up into the categories of easily moveable and bulky. When a glove is easily movable it offers a wide range of movement to your hand, but compromises your bulky ness. Bulky ness offers a wider range of protection, but when a glove has a lot of bulk it looses is movability.
