Gloves should allow for ample movement of the wrist and fingers while preventing hyperextension of the thumb. Fit is up to the individual player, but the glove should protect the fingers and hands from sticks. Gloves come in both tapered and loose fits for the fingers. Your preference will similarly dictate whether you want a longer or shorter cuff. A longer cuff will provide more protection at the expense of mobility. A shorter cuff will provide mobility at the expense of slash protection. Use the below Glove Sizing Guide to get the right fit.
