Buying Elbow Protection

This guide will help you to buy the right elbow protection.

Hockey elbow pads are designed to protect you against bruises and from broken bones when you fall or get hit by a stick.

The elbow pads do not only cover your elbow, but also protect your overarm and a part of your lower arm.

Choosing the Size of Hockey Elbow Pads

You can find your size by wearing shoulder protection and gloves. Then measure the distance between the lower edge of the shoulder pad and the edge of the glove. It is important that the elbow pad is the right length. If it is too long it will conflict with the glove and if it is too short a gap between elbow pad and glove will show.
The size of the elbow protection varies from brand to brand. This table will guide you to choose the right size based on your measurement on your arm and your height.

Model Measurement Height (approx.)
Child 8" < 4'
Junior Small 10" 4' - 4' 6"
Junior Medium 11" 4' 6" - 4' 10"
Junior Large 12" 4' 10"- 5' 4"
Senior XSmall 12" 4' 10"- 5' 7"
Senior Small 13" 5' 5" - 6'
Senior Medium 14" 5' 9" - 6' 4"
Senior Large 15" > 6'

Most elbow pads can be adjusted in size with the Velcro straps. This way they can easily be adjusted to the individual size of an arm.

Quality of Elbow Pads

Good elbow pads allow you to move freely while at the same time protecting your arm no matter what position it is in. It is also important that the padding (preferably gel) is good in order to give you the best protection.
