Brian's Sub Zero Pro III Glove represents another benchmark in Brian’s legendary history of producing gear that goalies actually want to wear. The new SZ3 has the same 40 degree angle to its break as the SZ2 providing familiar closure, and a deep pocket, amplified by an efficient lace free face construction. Also, the thicker outer edge around that pocket has been replaced with a thinner but rigid Single-T Web, providing even more lace for a cavernous pocket.
One of the biggest improvements from the SZ2 comes in the form of their ergonomic One Piece Molded Cuff. This rigid waste-less design is a complete improvement over previous iterations, doing less with more. The new mold works in unison with the T-Web Pocket, guiding pucks exactly where you want them to be. The SubZero Pro III glove is also outfitted with a new Hexair Wrist Support to further the glove's ergonomic feel on the puck and breathability. Further to this end Brian’s has included their familiar SBA No Slip Grip, a material that actually gets tackier when wet, in the palm and wrist pad, as well as the X-Static nano-silver lining, to kill bacteria and odor!
Measure your hand from the heel of the palm to the tip of the middle finger, then consult the chart below to find the size that will work for you.

Keys to a Proper Fit:
- The goalie's fingers should extend out to the end of the finger stalls of the inside palm to ensure a proper fit. However, any more than 1/2" from the tip of the goaltender's finger to the end of the finger stall and the goaltender will not have the leverage needed to properly close and control the glove.
- The heel of your hand should line up with the heel and cuff of the catcher. If not, the proper balance between the cuff and catching portion of the glove may be disturbed, making the glove too cumbersome while sacrificing protection.
