The Brine women's lacrosse goalie pants are the most popular on the market.. from youth right up through collegiate levels. These are well padded and fit pretty true to size. The story with these pads is that the ladies here tell us they are not restrictive at all .. but taking shots off the thighs is no problem. These cost a bit more than the discount stuff you will find at the local lacrosse store, but we really only carry the best here. I mean why get gun shy from cheap padding that hurts when you get hit. Might as well get the good stuff if you are gonna get pelted for an hour or two .These are also worn by many youth male goalies when they are first getting started to take the sting out.
