Bauer Nexus 1000 Shinguard

The Nexus 1000 Shin Guards feature lightweight EPP foam and a multi-segmented design that offers both top level protection and mobility. An anatomical, ribbed poly knee and shin shell, as well as an extended dome at the knee joint, only add to the level of protection. In addition, the Nexus 1000 has an anchor strap across the calf, an adjustable/removable strap system and a removable pro air mesh liner. Rounding out Bauer 3-fit offering, Nexus shin guards have a generous volume fit that caters to the player looking for more width.

Great Shins!
Pros: Great value, Quality
This was the most comfortable pair of shins I tried on. Now, the Nexus 1000 has an upper and lower adjustable velcro strap with 2 sections for each strap that you can "adjust" a bit. Then there is the main large calf strap. I have removed the 2 upper and lower straps in favor of using tape instead. That's what works for me, but even with the 2 straps on, they were pretty comfortable.
I have taken a couple shots to the shin as well as the occasional trip up or slash and these have held up well and keep me from limping off the ice.
I'm 6'4 and I bought the 17" shins. The main calf strap is still a little loose after attaching but I'm using the sock tape anyway so that's why I stated these run a "little big"

Great Shingaurds
Pros: Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: calf strap too loose
I am normally a goalie who likes to skate occasionally and of course I have a tendency to block shots. I like the fit of these shin pads and the protection so far is great. I was worried I would trip over myself with these but they move great. I do have small calves, so I find the straps to be a little weak for me, because I can not get them tight enough. The main strap is the Velcro calf strap. I wish there was a little more Velcro toward the middle so i can make it more tight. Currently the calf strap does nothing for me. My best bet is have somebody sew a new Velcro piece toward the middle of the calf strap so i can tighten it.
Other than that this is a great product.

Best fitting shin guard ever
Pros: Great value, Features
I REALLY like what Bauer has done with the Nexus 1000 shin guard. I like my pads to fit tightly and usually have to get my lady to trim down and sew straps for me. But with the adjustable straps the Nexus pad includes. I get a great fit, the best fit ever right out of the box! These are very sturdy, very adjustable pads without feeling bulky or stiff. Well done Bauer.
