Bauer Vapor APX Gloves

The Bauer Vapor APX gloves and APX Pro gloves are the latest high end gloves from the Vapor line of protective equipment. Due out in April, 2012, the APX gloves are going to keep the same tapered fit that we’re familiar with in Vapor gloves, and carry all the top end features we like to see.

Beginning with the cuff, the APX gloves will have a free flex cuff to provide you with maximum mobility while stickhandling. The Aero Foam construction used in the gloves will reduce overall weight by 20%, while continuing to provide great protection for your hand. On the APX gloves, you’ll see a techni-flex palm to ensure great feel all while providing incredible durability. It’s also going to be lined with silver fibers, much like the Warrior Franchise gloves, to add increased resistance to odors and staining.

With the APX Pro gloves, you’re going to notice a few differences. The biggest one will be the palm, as the APX pro gloves will use a dual layer nash palm instead of the techni-flex. The APX Pro will be constructed out of dual density foams, rather than the Aero Foams, while the shell uses pro nylon mesh instead of synthetic leather. The tapered fit will be consistent through both, however, the cuff on the APX pro gloves will be a contoured and segmented cuff rather than the free flex cuff. Both gloves will use Bauer’s Thermo Max+ liner to help keep the gloves dry.

  1. Use the X:60 Pro’s right now and the only drawback was the palm. That issue has clearly been adressed with this glove. Looks like it will be a worthwhile investment.

  2. Looks great never had the x:60’s but gotta feel them these still have the awesome look with a few new minor details imma get em!!!

    • Not quite. He describes them as a custom mix between a 4-roll and Vapor. So they’re going to look like a 4 roll on the outside but fit like a Vapor series glove.

  3. Awesome gloves! But aesthetic point of view, I personally think it’s ugly. They shoulda stuck with the older model’s aesthetics. Too much colour on the glove, I’m wondering how the single colours will look like.

  4. Recently purchased these, absolutely no break in time needed, some gear you need some time to get used to, these instantly meshed with me. My puck handling feels alot more responsive and there’s alot more “feel” with the puck. The biggest issue I was having with my old gloves were my palm would begin bruising after a couple snap shots and it would begin to hurt so bad I wouldn’t be able to shoot at 100% power. More than likely due to my crappy gloves, the APXs are everything I wanted. I’m in love.
