Bauer Supreme S170 Junior Goalie Glove
The Supreme line has been Bauer's flagship option for goalies, and it continues to impress. The S170 Glove is a very stable, protective option for developing goalies who are looking for a glove that wont break the bank. The One Piece Cuff in the S170 serves as the foundation for a very stable glove, and the reinforced HD foams lining all the high impact areas certainly contribute to the rigid nature of the glove. You'll find that in the backhand of the glove Bauer has struck a nice balance of mobility and protection with their familiar Free Flex Cuff technology. Finally, a Deep Single Tee Pocket provides a reliable feel and break in that won't be coughing up pucks anytime soon.

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.
