The Best Lacrosse Arm Pads & Guards 2020

May 13, 2020

Here at Lax.com we sell only the best protection, and that is especially true for the arm protection for the 2020 season. Before going over which is the best, we’re going to break down the different styles of protection, and what you need to be wearing to maximize your skills.

There are three different types of arm protection, arm guards, arm pads, and elbows pads/caps. Arm guards offer the most protection, elbow pads give you the best mobility, and arm pads a combination of both protection and mobility. If you are an attackman or middie who is consistently carrying the ball, the arm guard is designed with you in mind. The best arm guards offer high-level protection, while not completely inhibiting the freedom of motion. If you play defense or long stick midfielder, we suggest looking into elbow pads, as they give you the best range of motion, allowing you to throw precise checks. If you are a midfielder who plays both ways or wants more range of motion than what the arm guards provide, we suggest going with an arm pad.

It's that same low profile, high definition padding made famous by the Stallion HD series that STX carried over to these new pads with a couple important upgrades.The first is a new infusion of neoprene into the cuff of the sleeve. This really holds the pad in place with maximum comfort and flexibility. It doesn't matter how hot or sweaty you get these pads stay put. Secondly, is a lower full 360 wrapping that locks the forearm pad down to your preferred tightness. This simple change is revolutionary because other pads simply attach these types of straps to the ends of the pad and expect the padding itself to wrap around and mold to your shape. STX took this one step further and is now using the force of the strap itself to mold the padding to the proper tightness and shape of your are... the result is that you can wear these with no slippage and barely know they are there. h school players.
