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.
