Top Selling Hockey Gear at Hockey Monkey, August 2011
1. Reebok 11K Pump Sr. Ice Hockey Skates - For the second straight month, Reebok’s popular skate tops the charts!
2. Easton Synergy EQ5 Senior Ice Hockey Skates – Hot on Reebok’s tails, the Easton EQ5 shot up the charts after being unranked in July. Heat-molding + composite materials used for reinforcement = 1 hot skate.
4. Cascade M11 Hockey Helmet - Holding strong in the #4 spot, we shouldn’t be surprised at this given the continued discussion around concussions and player safety this summer.
5. Bauer Vapor X:60 TAPERED Sr. Hockey Shaft - Also a steady performer at #5, folks are loading up on a stick with as many features as a Swiss Army Knife.
6. Warrior Luxe Senior Hockey Gloves – A new entry on this list takes the top spot among hockey gloves.
7. Reebok 11K Kinetic Fit Senior Hockey Gloves – Right behind Warrior, however, come these Reebok mitts, which are about $30 cheaper than those Warrior Luxe’s.
8. Bauer Supreme TotalOne Junior Shin Guards – Our first item from the junior hockey equipment category.
9. Easton Stealth S19 Z-Shock Pro Stock Hockey Helmet – I’ve written before about the S19 Z-Shock, a helmet I really enjoy, this model is currently on clearance for just $79.98.
10. Warrior Hitman Body Bag Wheeled Equipment Bag – A hockey bag on wheels rank right up there among the great inventions in the history of mankind (or at least that’s what my back & shoulders tell me).
11. Reebok 11K Kinetic Fit Senior Shoulder Pads – Serious protection at a reasonable price here.
12. Tackla Air 9000Z Sr. Ice Hockey Pants – The top-selling hockey pant holds onto the #12 spot.
13. CCM U+ Crazy Light Sr. Composite Hockey Stick - One wonders if Bauer will pass this one by next month, thanks to the new Ovechkin buzz.
14. Oakley VR901 Modified Straight Externded Shield – You’ve got to have a clear view!
15. Bauer Supreme TotalOne Standard Composite Junior Replacement Blade – Because you’re kid needs some new ammo…
16. Under Armour Sr. HeatGear Compression Long Sleeve Tee - I’m a late convert to how useful performance gear like this can be.
17. Sher-wood T90 Grip Sr. Composite Hockey Stick ’11 Model – Some players swear by Sher-wood sticks.
For some perspective, take a look at the July 2011 rankings, too.
