CCM U+ Crazy Light Hockey Gloves Review

CCM U+ Crazy Light Hockey Gloves Review

 

If you are looking for a new pair gloves, you, may want to consider the new CCM U+ Crazy Light Gloves.  The U+ CL fit in the anatomical fit for gloves, meaning that they dont have that traditional 4-roll look. The design is certainly different but not as radical a design as the Easton RS Stealth Gloves. It still has nice clean lines and a fairly simple look but different than traditional gloves.

 Once you slide your hands into the gloves, you will feel how nice they are. The palm is made of Clarino and that makes for a nice comfortable feel against your palm and will also allow you to feel the stick pretty good. There is a decent lock thumb. Not the best one I’ve seen but it will do the trick. As for the rest of the glove, it is kitted out with plastic inserts everywhere meaning that you will have that added protection on top of the double-decker U Foam construction. The tapered fingers flex well for easy and comfortable mobility and the cuff offers a wide open area for a lot of wrist movement.

Pros:

– Light weight

– Lots of plastic inserts for added layer of protection

– Mesh gussets for increased breathability

– Decent lock thumb

– Open cuff for greater mobility

Cons:

– Nylon outer construction reduces weight but also reduces the durability

– Open cuff leaves wrist quite exposed to a slash

Overall the CCM U+ Crazy Light glove is well thought out. It features light weight yet a very protective construction. There is quite a bit of flexibility and mobility in the glove without sacrificing fit and comfort. If you are in the market for high end gloves and not wanting to spend north of $200, then at $139.99, the CCM U+ Cl gloves might be the right one for you.

Hockey Gear Review recommends the CCM U+ Crazy Light Hockey Gloves to intermediate level players and above players.

Rating: ★★★★☆
