Bauer Vapor 1X Pro gloves are the professional model in the Vapor line and will provide players with a pro-preferred level of protection and comfort. Bauer’s 2016 Vapor glove line brings players their trademark tapered fit. This means that Vapor gloves have a wider fit over the cuff and a standard fit down through hands and fingers to provide maximum control with ample wrist mobility. The Vapor fit represents Bauer’s most popular fit on the market today.
While there aren’t many differences between the 1X Pro and last generation’s APX2 Pro gloves, the 1X Pro gloves are plenty different than the 1X model. First, the 1X Pros use a pro ivory nash palm with overlay, whereas the 1Xs use an AX SUEDE QUATTRO Grip palm. The 1X Pro palm is silky smooth and is the same palm that nearly every NHL player uses. The 1X Pro palm is still very durable despite lacking the prominent reinforcement padding found on the original 1X palm.
The 1X Pro gloves also bring players a shorter, pro-style, 1-piece cuff for even better wrist mobility. Similar to the palm, this is a cuff style that many NHL players use. It even resembles the cuff found on Bauer’s Nexus line of gloves.
The outer shell materials are slightly different than the original 1X glove model since they use a pro nylon material instead of synthetic leather. This is most noticeable on the pinky and ring fingers, where the 1Xs have a shiny feel and the 1X Pros do not. In addition, the thumb logos on the 1X Pro model are stitched on and nearly flush with the thumb materials. The 1X gloves’ logos are a raised, rubbery material that are glued on.
Even though there are plenty of differences between the 1X Pros and the 1Xs, they have several similarities. Both models use the combination of Poron XRD®, medium-density (MD), and AEROLITE foam technologies in the backhand, fingers, and thumb, for ultimate mobility, comfort, and enhanced, lightweight impact protection.
Both gloves have Bauer’s patented 3-piece flex lock thumb. The outer padding stays relatively stationary (it flexes slightly with thumb movement) and the thumb is free to bend within the thumb pocket. When combined with the patented 3-piece index finger, both gloves give players incredible grip and protection.
The 1X Pro gloves offer Bauer’s trademark 37.5® Liner with transfer mesh, which is also found on the original 1X model. This liner is made of a new, breathable fabric that accelerates the sweat evaporation process by maximizing air flow through the gloves in key heat zones. This causes the gloves to stay light, dry, and silky smooth during play because they won’t be absorbing sweat.
Both models have a raised, embroidered, white Bauer logo with the the glove’s secondary color providing contrast. This two-toned logo provides a professional feel to a retail glove.
