When it comes to lacrosse gloves weight, feel and comfort are all major factors to consider when buying a new pair. Lacrosse gloves are one of the most important pieces of lacrosse equipment a player can wear, because of the feel they provide on the stick. The most important thing to consider for newer and younger youth players is mobility and comfort. As players get older it is the combination of added protection and feel on the stick. Lastly, for the high school and collegiate players, it is all about fit, feel, range of motion and putting the protection in the right areas that will not impede performance.
Choosing the right lacrosse gloves is second only to getting the right lacrosse head and shaft as well as making sure it is strung with the right pocket. Gloves are your main point of contact for ball control on the stick. Bad mobility or cheap palms will hurt your game and development quickly. Trust our PROS, who have tested and used all of the equipment on this list. We only carry and recommend lacrosse gloves that we would play with ourselves or put on our own kids.
