Tom's Pick for November 5, 2019: Bauer Nexus N2900 Gloves
I'm a big fan of the classic four-roll style of these gloves. They feel great and look fantastic in any color. Their classic-fit style doesn't make your hands feel cramped, while still providing a tight enough feel for pulling off big moves or getting a strong shot on goal. There's a split-cuff design that really can only be described to those who have worn the gloves; the flex for shots is remarkable.
My son, Alex, wore Bauer four-roll gloves for all four years at in college (Cornell University). He always talked about how great they felt when moving the puck up ice. Also, they looked great in red!
Alex Rauter, Tom's son, scores a nice shootout goal while with Cornell at Madison Square Garden.
Stay tuned as we release a staff pick every week!
