Using a measuring tape, start by measuring the distance from the outside of your ankle bone to the middle front of your knee cap, then take that number and double it for your base number, such as a measurement of 16" indicates 32 in 32+1. Next, the +1 is a standard measurement indicating the additional space above the knee and may vary for each company. If you are still unsure about sizing, the best thing to do is to size up using another pad as reference.
If you are looking for more in-depth advice on selecting hockey pads , please visit Goalie Leg Pad Buying Guide or contact our customer support team for personalized guidance. Every company has relatively the same sizing but may vary in small incriments due to the build of the pad per company. With changes to the construction and technology of leg pads to match the technique of a modern goaltender, using an older leg pad as reference to identify your size in the current style of leg pad might not be a completely accurate representation when purchasing new gear.
Bauer is the only company that measure their pads with a word such as "Large" instead of numbers. Please see the sizing chart with sizing equivalents to find the size you will need.
